Since DS was 12 weeks old, he has been going to the same in home daycare. He loves it there. The other kids are great and it's a great kid/provider ratio.
She (the DCP) called on Saturday to give us notice that we have to find another place. Her step-son is going through a nasty divorce and he and his 4 kids have moved in with them and she has to start watching those 4, who are all under school age. So she is dumping all of her under 5 year old kids.
DS is painfully shy so the transition is going to be rough. I talked to a couple of centers and the rates are more than double what we are paying now which is not in our budget. DH and I just called about 20 in-home daycares and there was ONE that had an opening. Trying to find a spot for an infant on short notice is a nightmare. We have until mid-August because DH is a teacher and can keep the kids for the summer once I go back to work in 4 weeks.
Just feeling sorry for everyone involved in the situation (us and those kids whose parents are getting divorced).
