Tomorrow is my first day back to work in a year. This past week has been sooo stressful. We were having issues with Hailey's babysitter. When I dropped her off for the last of her "trial" days, I had gotten 3 phone calls from the babysitter before noon, one of which I had to go over and put Hailey down for a nap myself. (which was happening each and everytime she went there) I was so upset that day, my babysitter obviously had no idea how to handle a screaming/crying baby who was adjusting to a new person/place. I franticly called every daycare I could find in the phone book to try to find a new place for her to go at the last minute. (I was 2 days away from going back to work) Of course every place I called had a waiting list of at least a year. Luckily a friend recommended a place that is licenced that her kids go to, so I called them, and they had one immediate opening. So that afternoon I met with the director and had a tour. The staff there are wonderful and I really felt very comfortable. So today I took Hailey for her first "trial" afternoon, and she did so great!! She was so happy when I went to pick her up.. was in the arms of one of the workers, and I reached my arms out for her to come to me, and she turned and hugged the worker insted! She was instantly comfortable with them. I feel such relief!!! Tomorrow is my first day back to work... I cannot belive a whole year has gone by. It's crazy!! But I am so grateful to live where I do, where I could take a whole year off (paid) and be with my baby.
