ONE: We’ve been debating the daycare v. nanny conundrum all week and after touring a daycare and interviewing what I thought was our best nanny candidate, we’ve decided – much to my own surprise – to go with daycare. Why? Well, that could be an entire blog post on its own, but to keep it simple, we’re only relying on childcare two days a week, so we wanted to make those two days a bit different than his regular days at home with dad. Mainly, we wanted him to be more social and be around other kiddos so he can learn to develop some social skills. Will let ya’ll know how this goes.
TWO: Now that we’re about to have the added expense of p/t daycare, we’ve really been trying to watch our finances and rein in our spending. But kind of like dieting, after only a day or two of being “good” and not buying anything other than necessities, I have the crazy itch to go shopping.
THREE: Speaking of shopping, I am all about the fall fashions lately. So being budget conscious could not come at a worse time!
FOUR: Ok back to budgeting. I’m also working on bringing my lunch to work but you guys, I need help. I don’t do lunchmeat sandwiches (so boring) or salads (dressings don’t sit well with me) and I’m a big snacker. I try to take things like strawberries and string cheese or yogurt, but am struggling with an actual lunch. So if you have a favorite lunch go-to item, please share!
FIVE: I had SO MUCH FUN meeting up with four lovely bloggers last night over dinner. (And my mushroom ravioli was divine!) Thanks to Sara for getting us all together and thanks to Alyssa, Lindsay and Dacy for the great company and conversation!
