I told her we would be taking her to the spray park for a bit and Mom said "Well do you want me to bring her there and meet you?" AWESOME! Now I get a FUN day with my own kids.

I felt terrible about it to my other parents, so I just sent an email giving credit for the day to everyone, so essentially I took an unpaid day 'off'. Honesty is a good policy. Would NOT be right imho to credit one family and not the others.

Next years handbook has 15 paid days, so this will be a non issue. Some of my parents generally DO work federal holidays and NEED ME. So it went back to being available, and since this is the second time this year this happened, it's time to take those days OFF.

THANK YOU! Even for the 'hard truth'.
I'd glad it worked out. As for federal holidays and parents working, I still take them off. Usually, ONE parent is working, or there is a family member who can take the kiddo. Honestly, I have never had anyone question taking a holiday off. If they did, I'd probably not like them very much...
