if you ended up in the hospital starting RIGHT NOW for short period (say 3-5 days) where would your kids be?

I am putting this in $$$ section 'cuz a lot of people right now could not HAVE their DH or SO miss 3 or 5 days of work!

  • My husband would watch my daughter. He gets four weeks vacation, 3 personal days, and lots of sick days. (He can work from home too) Assuming that wasn't an option, I would take her to my mother's daycare during the day and she could take her home that night.

  • My mom would come and stay. She loves feeling needed and staying with her grandkids.

  • My children would be in school during the day and my husband would go to work. He would then come home and be with them in the evening. My oldest is old enough to take care of the younger two if need be. Nothing here would really change. I have to go away on business a few times a year and things run just fine in my absence.

  • My husband would stay home. He has 10 weeks vacation and he has 6 weeks personal time. If he really needed to work he could work at home and our son could go to his office with him.

  • School during the day and then with my parents or my exbf, who is like a dad to my son. I would let him chose which one he stays with.

  • now that we live closer to family, my husband would probably keep working and my MIL would come stay with my son.

    before when we lived further away, my husband would have to take off work and we would have to get behind (even more!) on money. :)

  • DD is in daycare, so she'd just go to daycare during the day and DH would pick her up when he got off work. BUT... knowing my family (DD is an only grandchild) I wouldn't doubt that one of my parents would show up.
