Sighs of relief

I finally -finally- found someone to watch Anthony while I am at work. Well, two someones, actually.

One is a lady I met through a local message board. She'll be watching him on Friday and Saturday nights. We went to meet her on Thursday evening. She has a daughter a few months older than Anthony and they played well together while we talked. I am feeling very good about this arrangement. :)

The other is one of my co-workers. She'll be watching him on Sundays. I watch her son on Thursday nights so Anthony already knows her very well. :)

Mondays, he will be going to a different daycare center for before school and to pick up the bus to school.

I am just so fed up with this ghetto daycare he is in. The owner is rude and downright disrespectful. She has the nerve to complain about my schedule and the hours I bring Anthony to the center yet I am paying full price for part time care. I pay for 40 hours a week and now that A goes to school he only goes to daycare about 25 hours in a week. IF THAT! I never even asked for a price reduction! WTF is she complaining about?? Agh.

Next weekend will be his last weekend there and I am SO happy to be done with it! I feel bad for him a tiny bit because he has made some friends there and enjoys the teachers but the bad far outweighs the good about that place.

As it is right now I feel like he never gets a break. He is constantly around a ton of kids and I know it has got to be wearing on him. I think he will be much better off in a home environment over the weekend so he can relax a bit. :)


  1. This sounds like a much better arrangement, although I don't know how in the world you keep up with everything and everywhere you have to go! I'd be dropping him off in the wrong places on various days, just because I wouldn't be able to keep it straight.

    Hope this is the first step in a long series of fortunate events for you. You deserve a break!

  2. Thanks, Angie! I don't know how I keep up with everything, either. I have a calendar I keep right here next to my desk that has my work hours, appointments and things like that but I honestly need to start using my planner (which I have had for a year and is completely blank!). Just today I started my volunteer work with A's school so that is one more thing I have to run around and do. Even on my off days I don't have the luxury of just sitting around doing nothing because I am always out doing something.

    I am thinking about pulling a sick day next week for both me and A so we can just chill at home in our PJs all day. Is that bad? LOL
