It’s very hard. I used to go in on Sundays to make up for days I’ve missed. I had a few jobs that had remote working as an option so when kids are sick I work remotely and don’t have to take off. Or My DH and I took turns half a day each so we both weren’t missing full days etc.

It is really challenging and stressful. My job has no flexibility. I cannot be late or leave early. Thankfully my DHs job is more flexible, so he stays home with the sick kids and then pays for it by working nights and weekends. I pay for it too, because then I don't have him home at all at night and weekends to help. We are going on week 2 of having sick kids home. It really is stressful. Childcare is the worst part about working.

My husband always works from home 2 days a week, so if kids are sick, he adds a 3rd. I take the other 2 days off.

My husband and I take turns being with sick kids. Thankfully we can both be flexible. More often than not I end up with them at work with me though. (My kids generally if they're staying home it's not for something that they need to sit in bed for)

Bh I work from home otherwise I would be fired real quick. By me when one kid is sick the whole chevra gets it, so it could be a solid 3 weeks of fevers and vomiting and diarrhea. Hatzlacha it's not easy.
