We've been so lucky with Raf's childcare providers. We started off sharing a nanny with some friends of ours and Jen, the nanny, was super. The logistics, though, were very taxing so we found Vanessa who's been with us since last summer. She is great and Raf really loves her. He has so much fun... but today she gave her notice in as, in happy news, she's getting married and her soon to be husband is in the military and is stationed out of state so in September she will be departing.
We have plenty of time to make new arrangements but we're simply not sure what to do. We don't know whether to look for another nanny/sitter or to think of a childcare center. We're just not sure. We were hoping to wait until Raf was preschool age before we sent him into the bigger world, but, well, he'll almost be 2.5 in September. Honestly I have such significant fears about him being elsewhere.
I don't know if our little boy is ready for it.
Oh, I don't know if *I* am ready for it. I don't think Rich is...
Id love to hear others' thoughts on childcare as well as suggestions if you're in the area. With any luck we'll be moving to the Saco area in September/October.
