Guilt free.

I'm leaving Big Daddy and the babes to fend for themselves for 4 days. I am beach bound with my mom and Steph and couldn't be more excited. However, I will admit that every now and then I have a pang of guilt. Mother's guilt I suppose. I started thinking.

If a person works 40 hours a week all year. They are usually entitled to approximately 80 hours paid vacation or 2 weeks. That is around 4% of their total hours worked.

A mother works or is on call approximately....ALL THE TIME! According to my calculations, I would be entitled to about 350.4 hours of vacation. If I were in the work place, that would tally up to almost 9 weeks of vacation!

There it is. Black and white. Now where's my swimsuit?

I can so relate to the guilt! We are going to Disneyworld in 2 weeks and we are only taking the three oldest. Daisy will stay here with my mom and my friend Mandy for 7 days. I have so much guilt about leaving her but I know we'll have more fun and be able to do a lot more without a baby in tow. Have a great time at the beach, sounds like a blast!

I love your calculations!
