A Big Sigh of Relief

Well a big check mark was made on the to-do list yesterday...we found a daycare for Little Man. And as much as I really don't want to think about going back to work and leaving Cruz with someone other than his mama, it's something that had to be done.

A while back {you may remember} we weren't even looking at daycares, but instead wanted to hire a nanny. It seemed like a great idea, however, once we looked into the pros & cons of a nanny versus daycare and talked with family & friends - the overwhelming response was daycare. I started researching Omaha daycares and one seemed to stand out more than the others - the Primrose School of Legacy. So I scheduled a tour for Nick & I to take a look for ourselves....and boy did it not disappoint.

From the moment we walked into the building (with the high tech security system) to meeting Miss J (the director of the facility) to touring the rooms - we were sold. Primrose is an accredited school where Cruz will start learning immediately in the Infant Room and will also progress through each stage as he gets older. The caretaker to child ratio is 4 to 1 - which helps ease my concern that he won't get enough attention. They start teaching our children sign language as early as a few months old which means we will be able to communicate with Little Man much earlier than most parents (ala LJ and Robert DeNiro in "Meet the Fockers").

As much as I don't want to think about heading back to work and leaving Cruz with someone else, I am excited we found a place for him that we both feel really good about. It gives him a chance to interact with other kids and adults and gives us a chance to ease up on the baby talk a bit and get back to the real world.
