Dd fractured a bone in her arm last week, and has a plaster cast on. It's terribly uncomfortable in the heat (like meltdown screaming uncomfortable), so I can't bring her in to daycare. Hopefully later this week she'll get a lighter more comfortable cast when we see the specialist - but until then - she needs to be home. I don't have any backup care, SIL is working, FIL is having some medical issues, so they can't come up any earlier than planned for xmas (coming Saturday), dh is too senior to take time off at this time of the year, so *sigh* I have to work with my boss to take sick / work from home / etc.
I wish my family was here so they could help out :(
