Change can be tough, but sometimes it is for the best. We’ve recently got a call from a daycare that we’ve been on the waiting list for almost 2 years. I know it seems like a long time but getting into any daycare can be a challenge. We all love the daycare Owen is currently in, but it just isn’t convenient for either of us. Tony has been doing the drop off and pick up because my office is so far away from it :/. So when the other daycare called we had to weigh our options.
When Tony gave our notice to our current daycare he said that it felt like he was leaving a job. When you almost have a few years vested in something it can be hard leaving it. Especially when it has to do with your child. Owen has been going to his current daycare since he was 3 months old. He has a bunch of friends and loves all of his teachers. I know he is still really young and he will adapt to the new daycare just fine, but I feel so bad about it.
He still has the rest of this week which includes his Valentine’s Day Party and next week at his current daycare. I can’t wait to put together his Valentines for his friends and teachers later this week. With the change Tony will be doing the drop off and I will pick him up. I think this will be a good balance, and Tony will get a much needed break after work.
