It's no secret that I feel very stretched at the moment. I have so many things on my plate. So many things to get done, and many days I feel like I need to be four people. I feel like I'm doing my best to get everything done, but not really doing anything properly. Im my efforts to find balance I've been making changes over the past two or so months. Switching to online grocery shopping, using the slow cooker for dinner as often as possible and trying to stick to a routine... and if you hadn't noticed, I've had less time to scrapbook! Well this morning I've bitten the bullet and enquired about childcare for Ethan :( He usually sleeps while Liam has his afternoon kinder sessions, but when Liam is in kinder for four hours on a friday morning sleep is just out of the question. I've tossed with the idea for months now, of having him cared for for those same hours so I can do some editing or clean. (or imagine even being able to go to the hairdresser!) I enquired at a local occassional care, but the hours I want are hard to get. So now I've looked into family daycare. She [the organiser] has gone off to make some enquiries and see what is available and will get back to me. I've NEVER used any childcare before (besides family). While I'm sure Ethan will love it and be fine, my heart is having a little trouble letting go and comming to terms with this decision.... therefore I'm not thinking the best... So please help me!
What questions should I ask?
Has anyone ever had any issues with childcare they can share with me. Any tips?
Any and all advice would be very much appreciated.
