We don't have a back-up daycare provider set up yet, which is dumb of us. Today we have a meeting at a local daycare center in our town so hopefully that will go well. I'm a little nervous about him going to a daycare center at such a young age. Hopefully we don't have to do it that often. I want to ask them how much one-on-one attention M.D. will get....in other words...how many other babies will his care provider be providing care for. They do have a pretty neat system set up where, when your baby registers, they are assigned to a personal care provider. This means that, ideally, every time your baby goes to daycare at the center they have that same one person taking care of them. It helps the baby stay familiar with that one person so they don't feel like they are being passed around between strangers. That makes me feel better. They also have this strange policy where you have to label EVERYTHING that you bring with your child's name. This makes sense to me for some things..but their list is basically EVERYTHING you bring. Can someone please tell me how I should fit M.D.'s entire name on all of his pacifiers that we bring? I'm sure glad I bought that label maker a couple of years back...
In other news...M.D. woke up this morning with a stuffy nose and cough. Signs of a cold or just side-effect to this teething? I had to suck his boogies out with that god-awful blue bulb and he screams because he literally feels like I am sucking the life out of him. It takes his breath away and he gets scared...and I feel like an awful mother.
Then, on my way out the door, I casually ran my fingers through my hair. Low and behold...a booger....in my hair. Welcome to Motherhood. This is the 2nd time that M.D.'s boogers have found their way onto me before a work day. The other time it was on my cheek and I didn't notice until I had been at work for about an hour. How many people did I talk to before that? I don't even want to know!
Depending on M.D.'s nap schedule tomorrow I may or may not post. I definitely do not post on the weekends because that is my oh-so-precious time with M.D. and if I spent my time blogging instead of cuddling I would not have anything to write on this blog anymore. Therefore...I take my weekends off...from everything...except M.D.
It's Steven's birthday on Saturday so if you know & love
him make sure to wish him a happy one! 29 years old...crazy!
