I absolutely HATE taking Brantley to MDO. There's just something about another person telling me what my child did all day. It all started because my boss is now asking me to come into the office part time. I work half days, 3 days a week. Some people think that's nothing. It really isn't a lot except for the fact that my mind and heart are in MDO 2 miles away... Today is day 3 of her there and it hasn't been any easier. I don't expect it to be for a while. Some moms are totally fine with sending their children off, to each their own! I'm not dissing anyone who puts their child in daycare starting when they're 6 weeks old. If there's one thing motherhood has taught me, I don't care what you do with your child or how you raise them, that's your choice and how I choose to raise my children is my choice. I understand it's good for them to be exposed to other children, etc. but my mother stayed home with us and we turned out just fine.
I really feel for those mothers who have to put their children in daycare 5 days a week, all day. There's a lot that goes into it! I don't want to be totally bitter because I have been SO FORTUNATE to stay home with Brantley until now. Hopefully within a year I can stay home without having to work. I keep telling myself if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it!
On to the positive, the MDO is really nice and is right by my office. The ladies are SO sweet and they really care about each of the babies. They text and will send pictures throughout the day if I ask.
Other than having to do the MDO everything has been great. I plan on posting her monthly updates with pictures soon! Brantley has been doing amazing. She is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything! She is the funniest baby ever. On the farm side we have been busy as well. Most afternoons and every weekend (all weekend) Justin is doing farm work. Brantley and I have been able to ride and do stuff with him and she loves it.
I will be back soon with pictures and monthly updates!
