'Tis the season for school holidays. Next week, Martin Luther King Day, next month there's Presidents Day. And any number of teacher in-service days and local school holidays may be on your calendar. What's a work-at-home mom to do?
If you have a child in school, even if you still have little ones at home, school holidays can present a problem. If you can plan to take the day off, great, problem solved. And you've got a holiday yourself. But, somehow, it often doesn't work out that way.
For instance, my plan Monday is to get up early to work, while the kids are all fast asleep. That way the kids and I can go out in the afternoon and have a little fun. It is a holiday after all!
