Mike needs to realize that sick kids inconvenience lives - it's part of being a parent -- not a MOTHER, a PARENT. So yes, sometimes that means he will have to take care of his daughter when he hasn't had enough sleep. And he shouldn't complain or make you feel bad about it! After all, you're helping to support the family financially by working too. He can't have it both ways!

So yes, you did absolutely the right thing.

you did alright diane. try not to worry about that too much. you got enough on your plate and that is such a trivial thing for him to get a little upset about. he'll get over it!

and, i think it was great of you to NOT bring Ava because it wouldnt be fair to the other kids.

Of course you did the right thing.

And as for your DH, seven hours of down time is alot more than I often get. Sometimes you have to suck it up and deal with it, that's what being a parent is all about.
