I got the call on Thursday that my start date to work is July 7th. That means I have ONE more week to spend with my baby 24/7. :'(. I cried when I got the call. This job is amazing, it really is. But I don't want to leave my baby! I DON'T!! I found a baby sitter. She lives a block away from me. She is AMAZING. My son has stranger anxiety, and he adjusted to her in an instant! I mean, he did not cry AT ALL! And that is soooo awkward of him, since he usually cries with anyone. She was really great with him. She gave me a glass of juice, and realized he wanted a sip, she got him a disposable sippy cup, gave him the juice, and gave him crackers. She has 2 children, ages 4 & 5. They are SOO Sweet! And they LOVED my son! All they wanted to do was play with him. She has a spacious house, Emergency exit, and a gate for the stairs. She has all the neccesities. She has tons of toys for him to play with, and she is willing to help me out if I want her to potty train my son. She is truly amazing!
My best friend told me, not to trust her. But I cannot live my life not trusting ANYONE. I need a baby sitter, and I have a really good vibe with her. I mean seriously, if I didn't have to work, I wouldn't. I would DEF. stay with my son. My best friend made me feel crappy, like I am leaving him with the worst of the worst. I am willing to give her a shot.
I truly hope it works out. I want nothing more then to go to work with a clear mind that my son will be well taken care of. I hope it really, really, really does work out!
