Phew!! I think I've finally got daycare resolved. I had thought that I had daycare all lined up for months now. The woman basically said don't worry about it, call when the baby is born. Well when I called her a few weeks ago she was full!! This lady was so affordable and highly recommended - I was crushed dvds freaking out! Every other place I looked into was about $75/wk more, which I just don't have.
So yesterday I happened to be emailing a coworker in a different department who had a baby 3 weeks before me. She suggested I check out her place. It's actually a facility that used to be operated by our organization!
Called them this morning and the woman already knew me by name because my coworker mentioned me. The two women that I spoke with were so friendly! They've both been there for 25-30 years!! And best of all, because of where I work they're going to work with me on cost!!
Yippee!! So keep your fingers crossed that we like the facility - we're going to check it out tomorrow!
I think we've found our place! It's definitely not as fancy as the more expensive facilities we've seen, but we actually liked it better than the place that fell through.
It's a lot more homey than the fancier places but the staff gives off more of that family feel. The one woman kind of reminded me of a younger version of my grandma!
So I think on monday I'll call and confirm with them. It's kind of cool because my coworker and I planned on having play dates when the boys were older but now they'll get to hang out in daycare. I also feel like we'll have an extra couple sets of eyes at the daycare since my coworker and her husband will be coming in at different hours.
