DS1 has been sick all week. It's awful, he looks and sounds so pathetic. I feel bad I can't stay home with him and snuggle all day but if have no sick time. I stayed home yesterday, SO stayed home Monday and my mom had him today. Hopefully he's better tomorrow and can get back to school. He's getting bored.

Who watches your kids when they're sick and can't attend school?

I stay home. I just call in at work. My hubby is in the Army and he can't stay home.

Sometimes my mom will watch my boys when they are sick. If I have to take them to the doctor, then I take off from work to take them

Not sure yet, but this is one thing that I add to my list of what to do when I go back to work.

DH and I take turns. Our nearest family is over 200 miles away so we can't really get help.

My mil watches DS. If he needs to go to the dr I'll try to make the appointment after I get home from work but my mil does have a medical card for DS.

My husband or I, and the boys' babysitter, if we absolutely can't. She's a retired nurse, which eases our mind.
