So it looks like I'll be working Christmas Day 630-1430. I did ask for it off but it's looking unlikely. Especially as I would of just returned from 14 months mat leave lol.
So I'm wondering what others do if one parent is working? Do you open presents early? Do something big with family another day? Do you save a present or two for when you/your partner get home?
And most importantly are your kids ok with you not being there? This is what hurts me most of all, I always had my parents there and couldn't imagine what it would if been like with one not there. But unfortunately in my job it's something I'll have to deal with every couple of years
Before kids I was happy to work it, I enjoyed the money.
