The first place I was really interested in fell through. The price they listed on the website was not real and the difference was roughly $80 a week. That made it WAY out of my price range. Although the price does drop once [livejournal.com profile] elf_baby turns three, but the whole feeling of dishonesty about it left a sour taste in my mouth.

I have, however, found another place that offers childcare the days and hour I want for roughly $12 more than the first place. I have an appointment on Thursday to check out the place but I have a good feeling about it. I got good vibes from the woman on the phone.

Having been [livejournal.com profile] elf_baby's primary caregiver for the last year with only intermittent visitation with her dad, I'm starting to get very burnt out. I'm looking into finding a daycare I can send her to twice a week. Ideally, it would be Tuesday and Thursday that way I can go to my martial arts class while she is there. I want to send her there so she can have some social interaction as well as give me a break. I am hoping that having the two days a week will give me a chance to keep my place cleaner and to have time to work on my own spirituality a bit more.

The biggest hindrance right now is cost. I have found a place that has a full day twice a week program for $126 a week. That is very reasonable compared to some of the other places I've scoped and it includes two snacks and lunch. The program runs from 9am to 6pm. I sent them an email to see if they can accommodate the visitation schedule we have set up where she is gone three weeks every three months.

I have even figured out how I'm going to pay for it starting in January. Lance has no problems with it and is encouraging me to do it because it will seriously reduce my stress levels. And it will not change our budget by more than $15.

Here's hoping all of that falls into place.
