As a full time shift working solo mum I won't make them all. But I intend to send my sister or parents if I can't go. I don't get a choice, I need to work. My 4yo has said to me "when I'm a mum I won't go to work and leave my kids". Ouch. But for goodness sake if I'm at work she has fantastic days with my parents, my dad takes her to Bunnings and indulges them to the nth degree. My mum lets them have cordial often. They're not deprived!
