I have two daughters who are 23 months and 10 months. Towards the end of last term I was in and out of work due to my youngest having diarrhoea linked to teething. She is still having this trouble on and off (good days and bad). I missed the last two days of the end of term and feel all at sea as I had to cart my pooey baby into school on the last day to get my laptop as I was told reports were due in the first week back! I fear I am going to go through more of the same when term starts again. I am basically off loading here! I just feel sometimes like I shouldnt do a job I can't fufill my responsibilities.I even felt bad when the pay check came at the end of the month as it felt like money for nothing! Is this the burden all working Mums have or should I just grow a backbone and get on with it?!
