Hooray it’s FRIDAY! We have absolutely NOTHING planned for this weekend and I am so excited for it. I think we plan on doing some yard work and perhaps I will get my bake on again this weekend…
I wanted to share a sweet $2 Target find,
Aren’t they so cute!? I love em.
This week Erik and I went to two different types of daycare centers, well one was a daycare center and the other was an at home daycare. Unfortunately with the area we live in, we cannot afford to really live on one salary. I mean we could do it, but we also like nice things and we like to travel, hence the need for a daycare for our little man.
The daycare center was small and quaint, and we really like that, but the infant room had 12 babies and three women taking care of them, in a room no bigger than my current office at work. Don’t get me wrong the babies all looked happy but for us I think we want a little more personal attention for him when he is so young.
The in home daycare lady was awesome, she was so sweet and the way she spoke about the kids in her daycare made me feel as though she loved them all like they were her own kids. She cooks them fresh food everyday, nothing ever from a jar, can or box, which I love, and only has 8-10 kids with 2 sometimes three people watching them. The house was very clean and put together as well. We just got a very vibe from this lady. I have a list of references which I will be contacting soon, but we still want to keep our options open. I think I would like to look at a few more in home daycares to compare them and see what we really like.
This is I think the hardest decision we have ever had to make so far, and it is really scary. I am really nervous, and I think I will have a very very hard time dropping him off at any day care. In a perfect world I would be able to find a job that allows me to work from home so that I wouldn’t have to leave him with someone else.. sigh…
I think we have decided to put our little man into an at home daycare until he is around 2, then move him to the daycare center that we liked, this way he will have the homey feeling when he is very young and as he gets older he can learn to socialize more with the other kids and learn.
Thoughts? Anyone with kids have any advice for me?????
