So, I think I may have found the perfect family daycare option. The only issue is that she may not have an open spot until 1 1/2 weeks after I'm supposed to go back to work, assuming DS 1 arrives on EDD.
MIL has offered to take a week off to help, if needed. So at this point, I'm hoping he'll be 4+ days late so that her visit will cover the difference.
However, I have no idea what to do if he's born 1-2 weeks early. DH is out of work currently, so even if he has something by then (knock on wood), he won't have any time off to help cover the difference.
Does anyone have experience with this issue? If so, what did you do or what are you planning to do?
This provider is really on top of her game, amazing with little kids, 23+ years of experience, makes all meals from scratch daily, takes daily walks and/or field trips, plans educational theme days and weeks, has the best set up I've seen to date (3 dedicated rooms in basement for naps, play time, and full kitchen, as well as two parks and a creek in walking distance and a ton of outdoor play equipment)- it's all too awesome to pass up just due to minor timing issues. Any thoughts are appreciated!
