Double

When Sophie gets sick, I have to stay home to take care of her. Then I get sick. It doubles the fun. It even makes me understand why some employers discriminate against working moms (not condone, of course, just understand).

Fortunately, my students are gracious when I tell them that I didn’t have time to grade 3 of their papers, because Sophie was too sick to go to daycare. They’re also surprisingly gracious when I tell them that 2 of the papers that I did grade have baby-scribbles on them, because Sophie just really wanted to put her own comments on their college essays.
