A spoon full of something

Finding daycare is proving challenging, as usual.  Joe met with a home daycare yesterday and was not blown away.  Not only that, but the lady charges double what I have budgeted.  So it’s not even a matter of whether we want to go with her even though she is technically suitable – we can’t even afford her.  And while I don’t want cost to be a huge factor in our choice, that is just the way it is.

I found a couple of nanny shares and will be meeting with a family and their nanny today.  This seems like the best possible option for us.  The rigid rules of a lot of daycares don’t fit our style at all, and Joe’s almost-full-time-but-not-quite job means we need flexibility in the schedule.  The people I’m meeting with today have a schedule nearly identical to ours, and the cost is right in line with our budget.  Hopefully it’s a fit because Joe starts training on Wednesday!

I was kind of freaking out about this last night but today I feel more hopeful.
