Wow I am really surprised how upset people get over the child care situation of others. I get it if your waiting on a place but if random strangers are paying a professional to look after their children is it really anyone's business. My problem at the moment is I will be working from home part time after bubs is born so I am thinking about occasional care for starters, a couple of half days in family care if I can wrangle it then maybe permanent days a couple times a week. My partner doesn't get that just because I work from home doesn't mean I am a full time stay at home parent and if I don't bring in at least a part time wage eventually we will never pay off credit cards or get a head in life. I don't care what others think of my choices but its hard when family judges you!
