Send kids to the babysitter or daycare? If you called in to work. I mean.


*****Thanks for your replies, I guess I am the only one who was under the impression that moms don't get sick days. I guess if you have full time child care, you do.

I've done that. I'm paying for it whether I am at home or at work. Then I can get some rest and get better faster.

Yep. I like my job and I can't miss school for something like a cold so I have to be REALLY sick to call in. If I'm that sick and I have the option to do nothing but lay in bed, I'm taking it.

If you have to pay for it anyway, why not?  It will make your recovery easier and make your kids less likely to catch whatever you have.

usually. i only stay home if i'm so sick i can't think, so they would be much better served in their normal situation than staying home, eating cereal, and watching tv while i wallow in bed.

 No. My babysitter comes to my house, so if I was staying home there would be no reason for her to come over. I'm not going to pay if I dont have to. Now if I had to pay for it anyways, then yes I would.

I'm a SAHM, but if I'm sick and the kids aren't, if it's their day for preschool off they go.  I don't want them at home with me if I feel bad.  I want to rest.

I'm a SAHM so no daycare for me. If I were working heck yeah I'd send them! That way I can rest and recuperate properly.

 I did.  It's easier to recover if I can stay at home and sleep.  I would get up and take her to daycare then go back home to sleep/relax...

I wish! I'm a SAHM, no daycare or sitter. If I'm sick I get up and take care of the kids. Then when DH gets home from work I rest.

If I had a daycare or sitter I totally would!
