All this week I was calling around to daycare centers trying to get Anthony into a before school program for Monday mornings. Well, apparently, no daycares offer part time before school programs and they want upwards of $120/week. For before school care.
So I was chatting with one of the moms at Anthony's school about my crazy schedule and daycare issues and she has offered to watch him on Monday mornings. :) She has a boy a week younger than Anthony and another boy that is 2. We got together at her house this morning to let the boys play and to chat a bit.
I am LOVING this arrangement. This means I won't have to take him up in the tower early in the morning until daycare opens -I can just schedule my break to go pick him up in time to drop him off at school.
Yea, Anthony is now going to be going to three different houses over the four days I work but I am going off the theory that "it takes a village to raise a child" and staying really optimistic about it. I think he will love hanging out at each of these houses and I think it will be good for him.
I just wish I would have found these ladies sooner. :)
