Okay, so I've tried to write a calm, coherent post about child care options but I just need to say I am REALLY anxious about finding someone to watch DS for when I start grad school in September!
I never, ever planned to be a SAHM so I am so surprised how much I am freaking out about leaving DS with someone other than DH or my mom! I work now but opposite hours of DH so we've never had to worry about child care.
So I guess my questions are - who uses a nanny? what do you pay? where do you live? I live in MA and browsing care.com hourly wages seem to be $10-20 ... $20/hour seems CRAZY to me but I don't know anything about this stuff! No local daycare centers have impressed me yet but I'm still researching those so I'd also be interested to hear what people pay for daycare as well.
And if anyone just wants to talk me off my ledge about how leaving my baby will be a bigger deal for me than him I would appreciate that too
Thanks ladies. I love my BMB!
