A few updates....
We went and visited a daycare on Wednesday afternoon. Not overly impressed, but we're sure she would be safe there. If nothing else, there's that. They could get us in as early as December 6th.
The Hubby's coworker's daughter (who we both know) is coming home from college (where she's getting her Master's in some sort childhood education) very soon and doesn't have a job. The coworker was confident that the daughter would want to watch Baby Girl while she's home, which would offer a solution from November 29th through the beginning of January (we're both taking off December 22nd until January 3rd, so we don't need anyone at that time). Waiting to hear from the coworker.
This Sunday we have a meeting set up with a lady who used to have a daycare in another suburb, but has moved and is starting a new daycare in her home January 3rd. She has a set circullum, which sounds really appealing to us. I hope we like her as much as I like the idea of her.
Then there are a few centers that we want to check out that could take Baby Girl once she turns 18 months (at the end of January). My mom is planning on retiring very soon (waiting on a replacement), so if she does, she could watch Baby Girl for the majority of January if needed.
Lastly, a good friend has offered to watch Baby Girl next Wednesday. She has a little boy her age and I think it will go really well!
If everything falls into place, next Monday and Tuesday are the only days we don't have a good plan. We have vacation time that we can take, but I'm insanely busy at work. It might require us to take Baby Girl to work with us for a bit or something. We'll see...
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
