Prior to being an expecting mother, I heard stories about the rising costs of daycare, and the security that surrounds these institutions. Now that I'm actually LOOKING for placement - I can say that all of the stories I previously heard ring quite true. I don't have the luxury of being a stay-at-home mom. I plan to continue to be an engineer, and work full-time, and maximize my 6 weeks of maternity leave. Yes - 6 whole weeks! It is unfortunate that I have to send my newborn off into strangers hands at such a young age, however I know I'm not the first mom/dad who has had to cope with this difficult truth. Although, most of us who do this do it because we have to, it's still tough.
Today, I visited another daycare. I consider the visit somewhat successful, because now I know I don't want to send Naja there. However this also means my search continues...
Note: With everything that's going on, I will try to still add some creativity to my posts, but sometimes I will keep it plain and real and just tell you what's going on.
PS - Third day I'm wearing this hat, and I'm not mad about it.
