In his words, 'my mum used to leave the sick kids in the car and take the healthy ones to school you arrogant cow!'.
Lets not get into the 'arrogant cow' bit..ive done enough crying today but I don't see how I can leave a sick little 6yo girl in a car (isn't it illegal for a start??) around the corner from the school where the car park is (no front of school parking or drop off zone, and I cant just drop a 5yo preppy in first term!!).
I don't have ANY friends or family for another hour away back in Melbourne (another story). Or any mums I really know let alone get alone with or trust to take my child to school.
So how on earth do you lovely single mums manage sick kids this age?
I just don't know what to do? Do you all have support with family or friends? a good car park? I am beating myself up trying to work out if I should send the 5yo to school or not tomorrow or if I should drag the 6yo around with me and a bucket? (I'm not sure the other mums would like that..definitely mummy mafia at this school).
My estranged husband works over an hour away (his choice) and works 7-3:30-4 so he's out of the question
