As we know, my son is going to be with me full-time officially in August with no guardianship strings attached. Meanwhile, I work 2nd shift, (like 4- 10pmish. I know it's not ideal, but it's what I have right now) and my mom watches the kids while I do so.
His guardian (the judge basically said I have full say beginning June 7th. the guardianship is just there right now basically for back-up or something, but he told her in the court room that everything is up to me because we're transitioning.) still wants him in daycare. she thinks it's preschool. no. it's daycare. they play and then color and take naps (he's 4). she does not pay for the day care. the government does.
the hours I work, do not go along with the daycare's hours, so for ME, there is no need for it anyway. the kids go to my mom's and isaiah plays with my brother, who is 14 and autistic, but is pretty much an overgrown 6 year-old in many ways. they go swimming and run around in her huge back yard, and things boys do of that nature like play in the dirt, etc.
isaiah was supposed to be in preschool this year, but the guardian was the only one who could enroll him legally, which is what the school told me when i called. she never followed up and his daycare lady told me he is SUPER ready for school. kids don't go to school in the summer, and i want to spend actual TIME with my son, not have to cater to the guardian's wants for him to be in daycare. so on the days i have him, she wants him in daycare between 7am and 5pm.... a little unreasonable if you ask me, especially during the summer, and especially since the whole concept of this "transition" is for us to build a solid relationship... how can i do that if he goes to daycare, then straight to my mom's the entire day??
idk if this post is easy to understand, it's kind of all over the place, but what do you think?
