We have 2 girls one in second grade and the one in preschool. Our babysitter has a lot of personal stag going on. This morning I could tell she wasn't in a good mood. My youngest starts to get upset about a broken toy, I give her a pep talk after we say our prayers. I say good bye to everyone and leave. A little voice told me to call the babysitter. I tell her hey I notice that you are in a bad mood this morning because of all the stuff going on in your family. Do you need to take today off? She replied no. Next, I suggested that she take a moment because the girls are not used to be being snapped at. She didn't respond to that well. I told her I was coming back and she could leave. I couldn't get my car turned around fast enough!
My husband is a police officer and he was in our bedroom. He heard how she was talking to the girls. We made the decision to let her go.
I am self employed and have my own office. It still sucks to lose a day of revenue but my girls' well being is more important that money! They are my world! I just had to vent because working moms always have these type of issues with childcare.
