I work at a school and our asst principal sent an email saying he would be out for the rest of the week bc his wife is having their baby. I announced it during our break period and one of the teachers went nuts! She was like I can't believe he thinks it's ok to take a week off for something like that! If she can't take care of the baby herself, she shouldn't be having more kids! Doesn't she have parents to help her? He has a responsibility to this school to be here!
I was so taken aback! I'm still in shock! I said doesn't he have a responsibility to his family before the school? She looked at me like I had three heads. Not to mention these people have 3 young boys and this is their 4th child!'
Am I crazy for expecting my husband to be an active participant in our child's first week of life or what?
