Why would you think it was an unhappy or selfish thing to no longer arrange your work schedule around your children's school schedule.
“Clearly," said Arthur,"you're an idiot- but you're our kind of idiot. Come on.” ― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
Ha! I didn't even do that, I went to clogging class and danced.
Isn't "thinking of other people's children" done by anyone who buys trick or treat candy to give out?
it's great that you think of other people's children on halloween...
Why? When my schedule is no longer dependent on children, as is emptynester's, I will plan my schedule on what works best for me and my husband. It will allow for a lot more golf, traveling, reading, and further education, and less time spent viewing soccer, cross country, and baseball.I envy that position especially today as it was cold, but I will miss some of my children's activities when they are grown and gone. I am happy to chauffeur to and view their activities now, but I will have plenty to do when they have moved on into adulthood.
i don't envy a position that's all about me at all.

Your ideal schedule is my usual schedule when I work, sometimes with another couple of hours in the afternoon and/or a business dinner.
