My boss came back from maternity leave a week ago. She comes in around 7:30 (ish), and leaves the baby with her mom. Her mom works night shift, so she has to head in to work around 2. When my boss had her first son, she was a single parent and would come in super early and leave to head home so her mom could go to work. This time she's arranged it (with her mom, not with work) so that her mom drops the baby off with her, then she "works" for another couple hours. She plans to do this for a year!
Yesterday, the baby SCREAMED his head off, she was on a call with corporate, and acted to her boss like this was a one time thing. Her boss hasn't been in to notice anything. I don't care, the baby screaming is a little frustrating, but it's really not fair to the other people that are paying for daycare. She isn't a single mom anymore, her and her husband both work. I know daycare is expensive, I've been there. But I feel like there is going to be a lot of angst in the next couple weeks while people figure out what's going on.
There is already enough angst at work, there doesn't need to be any added on top of that.
