Day care and such

When I began working in September it was going to be 20 to 25 hours a week while my kids were in school. I was given flexibility to take off pretty much any time I needed. That lasted about two months. I slowly gained more responsibility and before long I was working closer to 40 hours a week than 20. It has worked alright. In theory, I can work full time and be home before the kids since I get to work about 6 in the morning. However, being the practical girl that I am, I realize that theory and reality are not always the same. Therefore, today I enrolled my kids in an after school day care. I thought about just doing the after school program that the school offers, since it is much cheaper, but that would leave me in a bind on the days that they don't have school. The boys and I went and toured the facility today and it is really nice. During the week of spring break they will get to go on a field trip to Pump It Up. I think this is going to be a good thing.

i feel your pain. i just took on a long term subbing job, and grady qualified for the school day care-he's loved it, but a transition nonetheless from being stay at home. :)

I'm glad Grady likes the school day care. I think they adjust easier than we do. I am sure my kids will do fine with the change, and I will get over the guilt.
