New Childcare: An Update

While still feeling the everyday stress, Ron and I are happy to report that we feel SO much happier the past couple of days. I feel like I almost have a spring in my step. I know I'm smiling more. The changes that this week brought about were obviously meant to be.
Moira has had 2 full days in her new daycare. She has had no accidents. Kind of makes us wonder how at the old daycare she was having 2-4 accidents a day. Moira loves her swimming lessons. She goes for 45 minutes every day. Plus on Tuesdays and Thursdays, her class gets to swim for 45 minutes in addition to the lessons. She is a little chatterbox all the way home each day. She has made the transition very well. I was so concerned. From the minute we walked in the door yesterday, she was at home. The director said you'd never know that she had just started. Again, makes you wonder about the old place.
Peyton is settling in well with the home daycare we have her in. We're very happy so far. Peyton is taking more by bottle and is taking more rice cereal than the daycare ever was able to give her. She, too, seems happy in her new surroundings. Tomorrow she'll have more new surroundings as the lady who watches her had already planned to have tomorrow and Friday off. She does, however, have a back up provider, so Peyton is off to that lady's house. The back up just happens to live directly behind our house and over one! That's pretty convenient! She'll be the only one going there tomorrow, so she'll get plenty of attention. I'm not sure how many children this lady watches regularly.
We are just so happy to finally have the daycare crisis behind us and we can move on. We will tour the special needs school next week and see if they have a waiting list for their next upcoming school year. We'll see how that works out.
