My First Working Mom Wednesday!

I just discovered this awesome linkey a few days ago at Sweet as Punkin Pie - this is my first Wednesday to be part of it, and I'm really excited about it!

What do you about work when your child is sick?  Whose responsibility is it to stay home when daycare is not available?  Should Mom be the typical caregiver or should Dad step in?

Well, our family is kind of unusual when it comes to balancing work schedules.  My wonderful husband Robby (who is a pastor) has a lot of flexibility when it comes to office hours, and he can take our kids pretty much anywhere with him.  Since we homeschool (or I should say, at this point, he homeschools) our kids, we don't have to worry about day care or me taking off work.  Robby is the caretaker when the kids are sick.  Our family doctor knows him a lot better than he knows me!  I have, however, taken off work when Robby is sick and not able to take care of the kids.  But, as a general rule, Robby is Mr. Mom when I'm at work and at school.  (In case I haven't mentioned it already, my husband is incredible!  I couldn't do what I'm doing now without him.)

Yay! Welcome to Working Mommy Wednesdays!!!

It's so nice to read your post, and see that your husband stays home with the kids. I like to see that many dads are stepping up to the plate these days.

Great blog! I will certainly be back again :-)
