So my DS started daycare in jan he goes wednesday & friday.
He is there for socialisation and because we have no preschool within a reasonable distance to us so daycare is his 'preschool'.
He is doing pretty good, a little fuss when i drop him off but then has a good day.
Me though im having 2nd thoughts. Im wondering if we should have started with just 1 day a week and built up to 2 next year.
My reservations are partly to do with cost, 2 DD's at a catholic school plus 2days of daycare is not cheap each week - if i cut him down to 1 day this year i could put the extra aside to make paying for 2 days next year easier.
My other reason is probably selfish. I miss him.
He spends the day with my parents on tuesdays which he loves and they love so i dont want to take that off them.
But once you add in tuesdays he is away from home & me 3 days a week.
Im feeling like he doesnt have enough 'home' time compared to last year.
Mondays - swimming lessons
Tuesday - with grandparent
Wednesdays - daycare
Thursdays - home
Fridays - daycare
I feel like im prob overreacting but at the same time i cant stop thinking about it.
What would you do.
I dont work outside of the home (i do accounts & payroll for FIL's business but do it in evenings or on w'ends when DH is home)
