We went to the fancy day care center this morning, and we are sold. We have done a lot of asking around, and although the perfect solution would be a 'live-out' nanny - the cost of that in my area is insanely expensive. And I understand that - the cost of living in our area is high - and you would expect someone to be able to make a living if they are working for you full time. But it just isn't something we can swing. The good news is we can afford this rather pricey but VERY nice and close to home day care (7 minutes from my house and 15 minutes from my office)- and Aaron was really impressed. At first I was nervous that I was looking into all of this too early - but now I know we have a spot for sure and that is all taken care of. I know of others who were still on waiting lists when they were ready to go back to work. That is stress I don't need!
Besides that I want an egg salad sandwich in the WORST way.
