My mom runs a daycare business and watches our daughter at our home. My DH was injured a month ago and has been out of work. the first few weeks i continued to pay her even though he as at home because he was injured, on his prescription which caused him to sleep alot and since he had surgery, he wasnt able to do much at all.
Well, it is now a month into his injury and he is still out of work for now due to the injury.
Daycare rules states we will still pay for daycare even if WE decide to not take her because it is her sole income. (As in if we took a vacation or she was sick or something)
The only time we WOULDNT pay for a day she normally would attend, is if the owner (my mom) needs to be closed.
Well,it is now a month into the injury and he will be out for at LEAST another month. (hopefully just 1 more month) We are relying solely on my income only now so we are cutting corners on things to be able to continue to pay our bills and not fall behind.
My DHis home now, off his prescription and is able to do things like normal somewhat. Our daughter spends majority of the time with him and lately, my mom has been telling her (if she isn't with him) to go upstairs or today, she had her take her lunch and eat it upstairs while my DH was up there.
I look at it as, if we are going to continue to pay you for daycare, she needs to be involved in daycare all day long and eating with them playing with them like normal.
I feel bad because this is part of her income, but at the same time, we can BARELY pay our bills right now as it is with one income and if my DH is at home why would we continue to pay for daycare...
If she is going to be told to go with her Dad, then we need to discontinue payment for daycare.
Is this unfair to bring up to my mom regarding stopping daycare for now?
Please give me input, I'd appreciate it.
