Daycare Update


Tomorrow is a Friday and I'm so excited to spend the weekend with you! We've had a great week so far. You were a little stud at our Bachelor viewing Monday and had all the girls laughing. You woke up extra early every day which meant mommy had to run during her lunch break or at night but were so well behaved as you watched mommy get ready for work which was great. I think putting you in the sink helped, haha!

Last night, we treated you to Frozen yogurt. You couldn't get enough!

Mommy spend most of Wednesday figuring out what to do when Nana and Grandpa move back to BC in July! Your name is now on the list at two daycares that I want you to go to. Both have rave reviews from a number of my friends. The price is a little steep (890.00) but I believe you get what you pay for. Both centres (run by sisters) have qualified and well-trained staff, offer healthy food, have good ratios, provide a structured learning environment and offer lots of outside play! I have to call every 3 weeks-month to let them know we are still interested. I think it's a lot of "who you know" so I'm thankful my friends are putting in a good word for us! I have no backup plan... Yet!!  They're really the only places I feel comfortable sending you! Almost all the other centres have license infractions :(

My ideal start date is June but I have let the centre know if something comes up before them, we will take it! Mom is okay with that, which is awesome, although she would always be my first pick!

I don't know what we will do if I go on mat leave again. They don't hold your spot, so we pay 900/month or risk losing it. They also don't guarantee a spot for baby#2! It's a tough decision but one we will make when we have to...

In the meantime, Nana and you are having so much fun together. She is teaching you so many things and taking you shopping, to the play centre and the library for their programs. Some days you get to just relax and play at home. I miss spending all my days with you but I'm so so so lucky to have her here!

Today you went to the library then came to my work for a bit before we went to Kindermusik. You did so much better this week!! We also started a fun project for your big boy room. Oh, and it was mommy's bath night! You like to swim and float on your back which is so cute but tonight you went under water and scared mommy! You handled it like a pro though! 

Alright sweet boy. It's 10:15 and you're finally asleep! I'm off to bed myself...Sleep tight!

I love you so much!

Love Mommy
