Argh, the old woman next door just rang and said we 'need to do something about our little dog who is barking all night', hubby says ok yes he's barking right now I will go bring him inside but he sleeps in our bedroom so he is not keeping you awake at your claimed 2.30am. She just said well yes he does, well no he does f not he sleeps beside my bed and goes out usually after 6.30am! And anytime in the past I've asked her if she has heard the dog she has said no so wtf is with suddenly deciding he is annoying her.
...... 5th choice, don't go back to work
6th choice, get a nanny
7th choice, try family daycare
Buy my car!
You won't be disappointed.
Why does my toddler have to mess up every. single. room. Formal lounge, dining, family room, our bedroom, hallway, bathroom and her bedroom have toys everywhere. I have just tidied it up while she's asleep and it took me forever, and I'm sure it will take 20 minutes for it to be just as messy when she wakes up!
There are 4 family dare carers within a 10 minute walk of me, I found out just by calling up Wesley mission. Dd's carer also does the school run for her own kids and kids she looks after so one day when it was raining instead of me having to walk to get Dd in the rain she happily offered to drop her off as I was close by and she knew I didn't drive. Maybe I was just lucky but there's no harm in ringing around to see if there is a family day care with a similar routine who might be able to drop your Ds home in the afternoons.
Edit- I know how isolating it can feel not to drive, I have similar fears as you, however it would be beneficial for you and your Ds to get used to using public transport, I used to find it very overwhelming with a small baby but Dd is used to it and loves it now and I look at it as our ticket to freedom 😉.

Resettling dd again and the girl keeps farting some seriously smelly stuff. When the first wave is over she releases another!
