Yesterday I was filling out leave forms so I could bring the Wife to her gynae appointment,? and in anticipation of her delivery. When I got to the “Reason for leave” field in both forms, I wrote in the first one:
“Gynae appt (wife, not me)”
And on the second:
“Giving birth (wife, not me)”
I don’t get to give paternal reasons for applying leave very often. So when I do, I make the most of the opportunity.
