Ever had a period where you have to be away from work a bit due to your bub/child?
I've left work early a couple of days this week (sick bub) have a partial day off tomorrow off (sick bub sharing care with hubby). Have to have a half day next week due to childcare issues.
I've got enough carers/annual leave to cover my absences (and still have a balance up my sleeve). I still feel guilty though, perhaps because I don't work long hours now I have a child (don't have to, don't want to). Perhaps its because my workplace is busy at the moment. Perhaps I'm worried others in the office who don't have kids will think I'm one of 'those' parents who use their kid as an excuse to bludge. I'm not a bludger It's just been a run of bad luck
Does anyone have any similar stories? Did anyone actually cop an attitude from colleagues because of their absences?
