#parent | #kids | The moms are annoyed when I won’t take their kids

Dear Amy: I have been fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom to our son over the past five years. This year he is in school.

Given the unpredictability of the school year (possible virtual schooling, quarantining, etc.) and my husband’s demanding job, we agreed that I should continue to stay home this year.

I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease late last year and we agreed that it’s good for me to have some time to focus on my health.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had multiple calls/texts from friends panicking because their child is either suddenly having virtual school because of COVID cases in their classroom or they are being sent home from daycare due to fevers or cold/flu-like symptoms.
