  • I would do a background check on him.

  • She is moving into her boyfriend's house? Hell no. Just the fact of her moving straight from one big commitment into another sounds like a risky situation. How long has she known him? If she was cheating on her husband with this guy, that speaks volumes against her and the boyfriend.

    I'd be looking for another sitter fast.

  • I would find someone else. It sounds like she's in an unstable situation, which is going to effect your child. Even if the guy she moved in with is a saint - all of the change and instability and stress will impact your child. I hope you can find another option!

  • I would definitely not let her go over there... why doesn't she come to your house instead?

  • I can relate. I'm not 100% confortable with my son's daycare either, but you need to do what you need to do. You will always make the best choice for your child. Trust your instance, and trust them 100%

  • I hate that people are rude it's not like a nail salon when you dont like them there is five others around the corner to chose from this is an afordable home daycare with someone who watches two other kids i cant have her come to my house there are other kids too i just wanted to know if it's normal to be alittle upset she's doing all this, i'm not lucky enough to stay home though i'd love that it's not in the cards or money for my family!
