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.
