Id for SURE send kiddos to HER house in the future.!

Dh was best man in a wedding tonight. His speech was really funny. I left by myself. I was beat.
Just gift opening tomorrow afternoon then we can relax. I Had to make it thru this weekend tho. Then am "approved" by everyone around me to have the babe. AS IF they have any say in the matter.

So like 5 strangers touched my belly tonight... Hmm...its not my favorite thing in the world, but i don't say anything. I have always wanted to touch their stomach when they touch mine. Just to see the reaction id get...

MIL was at the wedding and after a rough week at work she decided she's gonna advertise and see if she can get 3 full time in home daycare kids. Which like 15 yrs ago she worked in a commercial daycare. But she wants to charge $8 an hr. Which, maybe in some parts of the country is ok, but here, its more like $3/hr.. like she wants $400 week per kid. Well when I was looking for daycare, in home or commercial, it ranged from bout 135/week to 170 week. So I don't know why she thinks she is special and is gonna get rich off of it. She said she looked online and people are getting $8 to $15/hr per kid...uhhhh, no. Not around here.
PLUS, she is a very poor eater, and rarely eat fruits or veggies, so is she gonna start buying them for her daycare kids? She doesn't do it when her grandkids are there. For that price she should be providing all organic, teaching them sign language and French and chess!. Ha. Plus she has health issues and goes to regular appts and how is that gonna work if she has to coordinate 3 kids? And energy level, she can't physically keep up with 3 kids. Plus she said she put out flyers in the neighborhood to get kids for before and after school care as well. And she'd have my neice and nephew a couple days for before and after school. This lady is a couch potato. How does she think she can handle all that?
End rant. Not even a rant, just suprised at how she thinks she's gonna make lots of money doing in home daycare. As someone who has 2 kids myself. (and I make bout $3/hr per kid, sometimes less when they stay longer). Which is about the going rate around here.
What does daycare cost where u live?

Wordbox- that stinks about your house! But hopefully you can relax and let as much of the house stuff go as possible this week.

Chach4- $3/ hour is about right and no one where I'm from would even CALL you if they knew you wanted $5-8/ hour- no way! But I suppose she'll learn soon enough, right?

Hope everyone is doing weel, enjoying babies, or dealing well with still being preggo!

Yeah, I guess she will. I'm sure somewhere $8/hr is ok but not here.

While its hard to enjoy the aches and pains, thanks wordbox for pointing out that its sad when its over!. Gonna do my best to enjoy these last few weeks(or days, who knows) of being pregnant. Cause who knows what's in the cards for me, maybe this will be the last baby ill be able to be blessed with.

No problem. And believe me, we have/had reason to complain! Pregnancy can be so uncomfortable, downright miserable at times. Those final weeks you are just so ready to be done. But I was really surprised that I have felt a bit sad to be done with that part of having a baby, too. My little girl is almost a week old already! It just all goes so fast.

(sigh) a lot of things u ladies are saying are stirring me.
Mo, its so tempting to get caught up in going early. I make it to my dd too and am really trying to make an effort at enjoying these last few wks of being prego.
I too have no idea whether this could be the last one. Very sad thought. When I stop to actually think about that a whole bevy of thoughts and feelings start to ttrickle out. Thinking i should spend some time in reflection after kiddos go to sleep tonight.
I also had a date with dh yesterday and it disnt quite go as expected! We ended up going to his restaurant bc there was a major storm that caused a power outage and we had to rescue thousands of dollars worth if food by bringing it to a diff store! Oh well, at least we were together, right? And its nice to enter into his world, kwim?
Ok-gotta go check my spinach lasagna! It smells gooooof! Lots of yummy fresh herbs

Re: Weekly chat July 30th

Thanks for all the friendly reminders of how bittersweet it is to no longer be pregnant. It is hard to remember when you are in the thick of it all but it is SO true. You never know whether this is your last chance, your last pregnancy, your last baby. Love it for what it is.

Off to think of how to really appreciate this time...
