Murphy did not have a chance with Mr Luck

Murphy tried to upset my day yesterday. I was just settling in at work when I got a phone call from the day care... The Toddler was sick and had to be fetched. I complained at first, especially when my car refused to go later on...But I realized I was actually very lucky!

Why?
  • The Toddler vomited three times at day care, but not once at home. Lucky!(Not very good with the cleaning up.)
  • I have family responsibility leave available, and do not have to worry (yet) about having to take my own leave. Lucky!
  • I could spend some time at home with the Toddler. Lucky!
  • I got an appointment at our favourite doctor within an hour. Lucky!
  • The doctor could not find anything seriously wrong. Lucky!
  • The battery of my car decided to cease today. Luckily it was at home. Hubby was in the vicinity. He is a DIY guy and helped me to go and buy another one. It could have happened while I was stopping at the shops or at work. Then it would have been a schlep... Lucky!
  • I was home on a rainy day. Lucky!
Do you also sometimes have to remind yourself of the half full cup you have in your hand?

    My boss wont give us family responsibility leave for sick kids - we have to use normal leave!

  2. Great post girl! Sometimes we all need to remember this.

    Laura - the labour act states that you can get for sick kids.
