Not Much Ado....

.....I did a dry-run on a resume yesterday, and have now handed it to a handful of people to look at and critique. Part of me knows that this is going to be a good move for me. But that other, mommy-guilt-ridden part of me looks at both my own children and the daycare children, and cringes.

.....It's not that I feel like doing daycare is somehow "beneath" me. It's just that I'm really realizing now what Aaron has told me all along. I'm not a daycare person. I love kids. But I don't love to be with ONLY kids. There's the difference. I'm tired of always being needed by a crying toddler. I'm tired of my house being utterly and completely destroyed (irregardless of whether or not I'm constantly in the same room as them). I'm tired of working nearly 60 hours every week.

....I'm just tired.

Hence "a very tired mommy" nickname. ((hugs)) I do think you need more adult interaction. And I'm sure the twins will enjoy whatever daycare provider you find for them. Good luck, I'll be hoping something comes along soon for you.

Having a home daycare is one of the hardest things I ever did.
I found that the parents are more frustrating than the kids at times.

You never get a break.

It is different with other people's kids...you can't just up and do errands or whatever with them there.
You can't decide at the spur of the moment to go visit family...etc

and it is a job that if your heart isn't IN it, you shouldn't be doing it.

oh hun, I know so many people that are not daycare people...ME, for instance. Mom...Andrea...um, pretty much everyone in this family. You've done a good job so far, but I think that you are definitely making a good decision for your well being - go for it!
