I read this news article the other day and I am so very very torn on the subject. I’m sure I’ll get flamed for whatever I have to say but I can honestly see both sides of this story. It’s hard when your baby is breastfed and a difficult child. I get that. I have gone through a time when she didn’t want the bottle. She would scream and put up a fight.
But listen. If your child is under 6 months old then yes, fine, by all means, they are suggesting waiting on introducing solids, you should be able to get out of jury duty. However, in this case, your child is 7 months old. Therefore said child should be able to (and should!) be having some sort of solids. So you are telling me they can’t have some solids in between you nursing before going in, during breaks, and after jury duty? You are just being lazy. It’s your civil duty as a citizen. You are also telling me that you have NO ONE who is willing to help you out for a day and watch your little one? Maybe I am just blessed by people around me but it seems a little farfetched to me that there is no one available to help you out for a day. I’m sure someone would love spending time with your little one. You were already pardoned once so just bite the bullet this time. It seems like a whole lot of excuses going on here.
I’m not sure why this aggravates me quite as much as it does but arg. Also, I’m sure I don’t know all the details. There could be a very understandable explanation but as of right now, I really just don’t get it.
