I hate those DayQuil/NyQuil commercials telling me that moms and dads don’t get sick days. Why the heck not?
I am a firm believer that we should be awarded sick days because our children are Petri dishes of sickness. What kills me is they get the sniffles and we get laryngitis.
So yes, we parents deserve sick days. And on those sick days, we have the right to ship our kids off to slumber parties, grandparents or babysitters. And we shouldn’t have to pay for this right. It should be something that is free.
So stop telling me I don’t need a sick day Mr. Ad man! I will have my sick day!
