I have just discovered one of the great joys that comes with being a mother. No sick days. No calling in sick. Nothing. What other job in the world do you not get paid for, are you on call 24/7, and you cant even take a sick day. For crying out loud, you cant even take a vacation without taking your job with you! Blech.
