Nothing profound in this week’s post. Just an attempt to crowd-source a solution to a child care issue headed my way this summer:
Right now, I drive my kids to two separate schools each morning. I have a toddler in a private daycare, and a preschooler in a public school program supplemented with a paid after-school program. The entire drop-off process probably takes about a half hour to forty minutes, but that doesn’t include the time it takes me in the morning to get them ready and get myself ready. Sometimes I just get them ready and out the door, do the drop-off, then go back home to shower and start my day. Not the most efficient use of time, I know, but sleep has been an issue, especially with a toddler who still night-nurses. We’re working on transitioning her out of our bed and into a cot in our room.
