I was prepared to start my search this month for new child care knowing that our nanny was leaving in August, but it was going to be on my terms and I could take my time. Now I feel like it's happening to fast. How will I know I have found the right person? I have to share my babies with someone else and then there is the constant nagging of not being able to stay at home, but not thinking I would do so good if I did stay at home. Feeling like I'm short changing my babies by not being there.
Then the kicking incident. WOW!! I realize he is two and can't always verbalize what he is feeling, but I wasn't there to bring correction, to explain why we don't do these things. Both Jon and I talked to him when we got home and recognized it was too late to punish him, but it makes my heart sad that I wasn't there. Not to mention Jon told me on IM and I freaked out that Brennan may be hurt. She was fine and didn't cry that much..
Somedays it's so hard to know your heart now lives outside of your chest. I love these kiddos so much..
