My sister has been watching Carter for us, when DH was at the temporary position for the past 6 months. The last couple of weeks she's been making excuses and complaining a lot about him. Well DH started a full-time permanent job today and she watched Carter today.

Well I've been asking her to just tell me if she can't watch him anymore so that I can find someone else to watch him. Well she finally did. Today was her last day watching him and DH and I both work tomorrow. We don't know anyone able to watch him full time, how in the world am I going to be able to leave my baby all day everyday with a complete stranger?! DH told me to just quit my job but I don't think it's an option just yet, our dryer is dead, our cars need fixed, and we have a ton of debt. This just sucks!

She said she could watch him tomorrow but if she does then she's going to have the one and only person I don't want around my son come to help her. I'm trying to do what's best for my son and provide him some stability and yet this crap happens.

I am planning on quitting my job in a couple months once DH gets a raise and we get some needed things taken care of but this just blows.

I'm sorry. I hope you can find someone you feel comfortable with. Luckily it is just temporary and in a couple months you'll be Carter's FT sitter

Thank you Marie! I can't wait to stay home with him.

Some friends are going to watch him for us tomorrow and then it looks like an old co-workers wife will be watching him. We'll be meeting her tomorrow. I feel a little better since we both really like our old co-worker.

That's great! I hope she works out! I'm sure if you like her husband and he recommends her then she will be great. I'm also glad you could find someone to watch Carter on such short notice for tomorrow. It drives me nuts when my babysitter backs out at the last hour the night before. I understand things coming up but ugh it sucks when you're scrambling to make new arrangements after dark

I can't wait! It was never the plan for me to work but when DHs job ended and he was only working a couple days every couple of weeks and I got offered this job (without applying) I couldn't say no. It's been the hardest 4.5 months of my life, balancing work, home, our marriage, Carter and everything else. I just want to buy myself an apron and clean, cook and care for my son all day ;-)

I can't! I just told DH that I'll give it to the end of June. Turns out it looks like there's some conspiracy going on between the last receptionist and one of the attorney's assistant to get me out of here so she can have her friend back in the office. I just want out of here. I had to walk away from my son today as he cried for me with someone he hardly knows to come to work to deal with this crap.

She can't do it. So we're back at square one. Maybe I'll end up being a SAHM May 8th instead of June 8th.

That doesn't sound too bad! That sucks about them trying to get you out so they can bring inthe other persons friend. It's not like you want to be there anyways so the least they could do is be nice to you

I cannot even imagine! I wouldn't blame you in the least for just up and quitting!

I gave my notice today! At least to the one attorney. No definite quit date yet, maybe 2 weeks, maybe 4. We'll have to decide between DH and I what we can afford and what we can't.

We are making some sacrifices, scaling down to one car, getting rid of our cell phones and cutting out any spending we can to make this work but it is so so worth it.
