One of those days....

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

we'll once again I am looking for a babysitter. just found out the person I had doing it can no longer watch rebekah due to his health. He was upset about it . I understand the health thing but I feel like Im back to square one. for the rest of the week I will be taking her to his moms ,but that means I have to drive 30 minutes to her house then another 20 minutes to work. I do not have a vehicle that is good on gas.

I hate that we have gotten into a financial bind. I feel like I have very few options. But that is the case for most people now adays. If I could I would stay at home and babysit other kids. I dont know what people are doing with there kids. I see other people advertise they babysit in their home but when I did no one responded. And I dont think they are doing well either.
So i have no idea what people are doing for child care. You have daycares but I have been in them and do not like them at all. I want someone to come to the house its just a hassle.
One more thing on my plate to deal with. I honestly feel defeated I thought I had things figured out and now this.

Course my mom calling me did not help. long story there but to sum up she wanted to know if william could pick up a grill when he got off work and take it to our house b/c it would be a xmas gift I was telling her what i had found out today about not having a babysitter and it was oh thats bad so is williams mom going to watch her. when i said yea until we find someone but that means a lot of driving for me then it was well text him and let me know b/c they will only hold the grill for a day. Im like really that is so much more importent then me telling you I dont have anyone to watch my child and I have to work.


enough venting

I get to work and the dayshift nurse apparently was not here today so I had to catch up on some work from dayshift. the rest of the day hopefully will be easy and uneventful. I really think if I didnt have all this stress I could loose some more weight. I posted on my page pictures I took sunday of rebekah austin and nicolle they are so cute so if you get a chance check them out. I brought in a copy for work so at least I have something that makes me smile close by. :)

    I feel your pain on the day cares. My little girl is going to be 2 in November and she started at an in-home Licensed daycare when she was 12 weeks old. The woman took great care of her, but was closed a lot. She then joined with a second woman to provide a larger daycare that was going to be "registered" (meaning they could watch more children). My husband and I were not happy with the service of the second provider and told the original person how we felt and the issues we were having. We also had a second baby on the way. After our little man was born he started at the daycare at 6weeks old. The "new" provider could not handle him and all the other kids-his first day he only slept 2 hours! We discussed it with the original provider-she has since stopped working with the second woman and closed down the original daycare and only has our 2 kids. This has been a blessing, even though there was struggle. The point of this VERY long comment is that if you can find a person who you like, be a good "customer" (pay them on time, be understanding, let them know when there are issues) it can work out in the long run. Good Luck with the Search!

    Been there so I feel for you. I agree with Andrea on this. And even though you don't like the daycares at least they are reliable.We didn't have them when mine were little. It is a big decision. Good luck. Hang in there and maybe something will turn up but as always be careful who you hire.

    Oh the daycare thing is SO hard. I remember leaving several places CRYING when wondering how I could ever leave my child for a day in the care of (wherever or with whomever). It is a heart-wrenching journey.

    Call some local churches or a local YMCA to see if they know of anyone who has childcare in their homes - that might add to your list of people you've already called. And ask other moms what they do - both of these things helped lead me to some people. And if the people you interview aren't anyone you are interested in, they may have some names of others/friends who do the same thing.

    Hang in there - it is so tough when they're itty bitty. But they will grow up quickly!
