I recently quit my job and am doing freelance two days per week. I had to move the boys to a new DCP that allows part time care. In the interim they stayed with a good friend of mine while I found the new DCP. I still use her once in awhile for one extra day of work if I need it. So they go to a new place Tues/Thurs and once or twice a month on Wed they go to my friend's house.
I'm really trying to lose the last 10 pounds of this baby weight and there is a great gym right down the street with a child care center. I have taken them a few times on my days off, but I'm worried this might be too much change and caregiver variety for them, in particular for my younger DS.
My first DS was in the same in-home daycare every day until he was 3, and so far my younger one has been in three in his first year. He always cries when I drop him off, but everyone says he is fine after I leave.
So, do you think it is too much to take them for an hour twice a week to the daycare at the gym too? I have this fear that I am going to psychologically harm him by leaving him with different caretakers on different days. I'm with them most M/W/F/S/Su except for maybe one date night per month with DH when my mom watches them (they know and love her very well I'm not worried about that one).
