    sure great timing. She does not have to go to work and gets paid for it. If she would of had the baby in the summer she would have to cut into her off time.

    Lack of professional foresight?! Really?! The teacher would have to be a total genius to be able to plan the pregnancy so she can give birth in the summer. Get real, lady. For most women, they consider themselves lucky to get pregnant at all. Sex-ed doesn’t cover when to get pregnant anyway, just to avoid it.

    That depends. Years ago, when I was teaching in Little Rock, some of the teachers would get a doctor to write them up “sick” just before the end of school – but continuing through the summer months. Even though they had their pay distributed over 12 months (instead of 9), they collected “sick pay” for the summer. Thus, they got paid twice for those summer months. The insurance company got wise and re-wrote the provisions of the policy.

    Poor planning?! That’s ridiculous! Unless you have a perfect cycle and know exactly when you’re ovulating, it’s almost impossible to plan! Even with a perfect cycle it doesn’t always happen the first time. It took my husband and I a year to get pregnant—I have polycystic ovaries and we were fortunate it took ONLY a year. There would be no way that I would stop trying to have a baby to accommodate my profession. I only ovulate about 4 times a year! How am I suppose to plan that? I can’t believe this strip is written by a woman. I have to say, I’m a little shocked.
