My 13 month old goes to daycare 4 days a week, and from next week will go 5 days a week. My mind knows this is not a big deal, but my heart is troubled. He is growing up so fast and now I will have 1 day less to spend time with him, but on other hand, wasn’t able to get anything done! Fridays are no meeting day at work for me, and usually a very chill day so I was able to manage him all alone as husband is in a busy project and has meetings all day, but nothing was getting done on home front!

So my VP at my previous company felt bad and refused to speak to me or attend my farewell after my resignation. His reason was that I somehow betrayed his trust as he had promoted me just last year (after keeping the position open for 4 months and letting me take additional work load after the previous SM left!). Does this make any sense? I mean where does this sense of entitlement or ownership over the employees come from? No wonder the company in question is kind of facing a literal exodus!
