Re: Does this make me a jerk?
No. Bringing home the bacon and using vacation days properly is very acceptable.
Changing jobs frequently, I never had more then two weeks at a time. Marital partners need to get a grip when vacation time is involved. Combine every vacation with weekends to maximize the time.
If you like the child, buy a thoughtful, specific present for him/her. Nothing expensive. Maybe a Ten-Dollar-Kite.
