Like many families in 2017, our lives are in constant movement from waking up, rushing to school and drop off, leaving younger siblings with childcare, and rushing off to work and appointments. Once we catch our breath we realize it is time to rush home for pickup and start dinner, only to hurry to bed and repeat. I realized when our care provider was sick and we had no family in Toronto that I couldn't take time off work for a host of reasons. I'm sure we can all relate to a boss who doesn't quite get it, financial responsibilities, and the consistency for the whole family. Simply, I wanted and needed to work.
