I have two different friends in the childcare business. One takes care of her niece and another takes care of her friends' kid. Both just had second babies and one mom is on maternity leave and still brings her daughter two days a week to my friend, the other days she keeps both kids home. The other one brings her daughter all five days and stays home with just the baby every day. Same hours. Does that seem odd to any of you? I understand a couple days a week, to keep the toddler on her schedule somewhat and to have a few days with just the new baby. But sending your oldest away every day when you are home with the baby seems a bit harsh. what do you ladies think?
