My husband only receives ...

My husband only receives one paid week of leave per year and no sick leave and we can't afford for him to ever have a short paycheck. I am so thankful that I work at a state agency which provides up to 3 wks of sick leave and 3 wks of annual leave per year so that I can stay home when our child is sick or take him to the doctor without wondering how we'll survive without that day's pay. However, it would help me with my job if my husband was able to share in the sick day duty - and it would allow better bonding between my son and his dad too. But for now I just have to be thankful for what I have - and hope that my husband doesn't get sick or injured!
