  • No, when I have a day off, I keep my son with me. Unless I have doctor/dental appointments, or something like that.

  • Not if they went everyday already?

  • No way. When my son was in daycare I picked him up immediately if I was off early and I didn't take him at all if I was off. I love hanging out with my kids and taking them to run errands makes it more fun.

  • No. I have not put my child in daycare at all. She is 3 now. My husband is a stay at home dad. I do not trust ppl I do not know with my child, especially since she has febrile seizures. I do feel bad that she does not get to interact with other children her age as much though. But if you are off work for the day, spend that time with your kid :)

  • I have ran an in home daycare for over 25 yrs.Most moms do keep their child home if they are off or may bring for a few hrs if they have an appointment or around the holidays so they can do their Christmas shopping.

  • If I was being charged I would. I heard some day cares charge a monthly/weekly fee. No matter how many days you bring your kid. If I am being charged for the day I will be droping the kid off.

  • With what I pay? Oh, hell yeah! I'm not giving freebies away to the preschool unless we've got very special plans.

  • Well, when my kids went they only went 2 days per week, so yes, I would, I needed the break! lol. If I had them in 5 days a week I probably would not. It wasn't very often I'd get a day at home ALONE. I actually relished those days!
