Earlier this year we put my middle son in daycare. The original discussion in our household was getting him into a learning center where he could be around other children who aren’t his siblings.
The other positive of it all was increased sanity for me, productivity for the work I have to get done through out the day, and, of course, catching up on the never-ending amount of housework which always seems to grow.
And yet, I have been going back and forth as to whether or not I think daycare was a good idea.
Some days, I love the fact that I can drop him off and go about my morning until I have to go and pick him up after lunch. Other days, I don’t even want to make his lunch or bother bringing him to have only four hours.
