This morning, my son got up early complaining of headache, stomach ache, and basic overall yuck.  Oh geez, here it comes...time to do some juggling with parent schedules.  Fortunately, my husband and I have it all worked out for when kid illness strikes: we split the day so that neither one of us loses too much time at work.  It's a system that has worked well for us so far.

Most couples have to deal with this issue as soon as school begins and it seems to start all too early in the school year.  So the big question is, with two working parents, who stays home with your sick child?  Answer our poll below.
