Yep, I have been there. Snow days are not easy for working parents. Neither are summers.<quoted text>
You are right in saying that the juggling act is not part of that equation. But how many parents do you know that will say that they are glad when summer is over because then they do not have to pay the baby-sitter as much? Those same parents are angry on snow days because that means they have to find child care, and that is a bigger burden than wondering if their children are safe while riding the bus.
Some parents are also glad when their children fall asleep at night, or when Grandma takes them for a weekend. Because being a parent is a tough job. One of the hardest tasks is making certain to take care of yourself in order to be able to continue to be a good parent.
And nobody needs to deal with your additional condemnation.
