As most of you know I am a full time working mama.
So that means C is in day care full time.
I actually have had since Thursday off from work.
And I'm off today and not because of Columbus Day.
Why you ask?
Well, because my day care lady is taking her vacation.
Ok, fine, vacation.
Everyone deserves a vacation.
But not at my expense honey.
She gets 2 weeks paid vacation, 5 paid personal days and three paid sick days and all of the Federal Holidays off and paid.
Is that crazy or what?
I know, I know, we knew about all these days when we signed him up but it's getting ridiculous now.
I mean, I would like to get a vacation too and just unwind from my crazy life schedule.
The faint memories of vacation, laying out by the pool, drinking fruity drinks, sleeping in....OOOOHHH sleeping in. I want you back sometime in my life. Please come back!
But its almost impossible because we have to work around HER schedule.
She is a paid employee of ours.
However, she calls all the shots.
How did this happen?
How is this my life now?
I already have several bosses, the hubs, my boss at work, C, and now my day care lady that I'm paying!!
All of my vacation days at work are pretty much taken up from C getting sick, me getting sick, and me having to take time off from work on her days off.
Are you freaking serious?
So here is the score....
Day Care Lady-29 + days
Cheryl and C-0 days
Does any one else have this problem or is it just us?
Please someone tell me that this is just how day care is and to suck it up.
Oh and can't forget that we have to pay her for her vacations up front.
What the F?
So that means I have to fork over 2 weeks every time she goes on her vacation.
If I'm not at work then I don't get paid until I get my booty back there.
Just seems like that's how the working world works.
And again, she is working. Working for us.
Oh, and if we do decide to take a vacation. We have to pay her for the time we are away.
"To hold his spot"
Bye bye money.
Bye bye new fall wardrobe.
I think my boss is about to let loose on me about my day care lady.
I can't help it though. What else am I going to do with him.
He tells me I should bring him in...baaahhhahaha.
He has no idea!
I swear he thinks I'm lounging by the pool drinking pina coloadas all day when I have to take off.
Heck yeah I would love to do that but sorry BOSSSS im not.
I'm running around with my head cut off trying to make my sweet babe laugh and not bite my head off.
I think my boss is finally getting to the point where he understands a tid bit. Maybe? I hope?!
But he doesn't have kids so he has no freaking clue what I go through.
That is probably another post in itself.
But on our mini vaca (if I should even call it that) we did a lot of fun things.
We went to the park, zoo, splash park, had breakfast with some of my girlfriends, and just played our little hearts out.
Here are some pics from our fun vaca.
So as much as I love to complain about her taking lots of days off, it does mean that I can spend extra time with sweet little C.
