love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
My little mama is growing up so fast! I can hardly believe it. I came home yesterday and the front door was open (we’re in an apartment building). I saw A but not LA. She said that LA had crawled into the neighbor’s house and was playing with their sons. I almost had a freak-out moment. LA was actually over someone’s house playing without us, and it wasn’t for babysitting. *sigh* They grow up so, so fast.
Update on babysitting/daycare situation:
I contacted a young lady that we use for evening sitting for whenever we go out (which is rarely). She is a student at my former undergrad college, and the college has a babysitting service. She is available to babysit LA in our home for the next two days, which is perfect. However, she is so expensive (babysitting rates in this area is $13 an hour), and we cannot make this a long-term solution. Luckily, Gia gave me the information about the daycare her son goes to and when I called, they had an opening for LA! I went to meet the owner and survey the facilities, and I genuinely like it. So I’m going to drop off the forms today and LA will be going to school on Monday. A and I are trying not to be overwhelmed with the fact that Babygirl is growing up so, so fast.
