My totally amazing babysitter, Jan, was offered a job at a daycare and started two weeks ago. She did not give me any notice. They offered her the job, and the next day to start... so just one day, from then on, I've had no babysitter.
I am happy for her but I'm also pretty angry about this too. I know I probably shouldn't be, but I am! She was wonderful with my LO, and was part of the family.
I am scouring care.com and friends of mine for someone to babysit, but this process is slow going. The daycares here are pretty disgusting with a year long wait!
My LO has been out-of-sorts lately and I think it's because she senses the change and that Jan is not here. Her eating, sleep, nap, etc have all been turned upside down! It's driving me mad! For the passed 3 days she has only eaten blueberries. UGH! lol
Ok, so my question.... would you keep in touch with this babysitter? I have a few concerns...
1.) Will this cause my LO to think she is coming back and ruin her schedule/routine again?
2.) I'm angry, and personally just want to cut ties because I'm hurt and frustrated. Would you?
I'm totally sensitive about this situation... so I ask that you just provide any advice, insight, encouragement. I am so upset about this situation,... I probably cry about it every other day! So lame, I know! But I'm so pist and upset! It took almost 2-3 months the first time to find a sitter !!
