If you work – or even just use a babysitter occasionally – do you call to check-in every once in a while? I’m not a compulsive check-in-er. Most days when I work, even if the kids are at my mom’s - which means I could call as much as I want - I never do. I know this sounds bad, but I don’t think about them much. I mean, they’re never really off my mind and I obviously don’t forget they exist, but I don’t worry about how they’re doing. I know they’re OK. When I do think about them – maybe if I think one of them might be getting sick and I don’t know if I’ll have to stay home the next day – I obsess about it and barely get anything done. It’s easier for me if I go into work mode and try not to wonder how things are going or what they’re doing. I just concentrate on making it through the day. How about you? Does checking in on your kids ease your mind or make it harder to keep working?
