So I have a dilemma on my hand here.
I have to decide whether to take my child to an in home daycare 3 days a week and my mother in law watch the baby, or take him to a fill time public daycare 5 days a week.
There are obviously good and bads to both, but I am curious to hear your opinions on which you prefer.
The in home daycare is pretty demanding the way a public daycare would be with time off (she gets more paid days off than I do!) However, there are 4 children that go there and according to the state she can only have one baby under the age of 1 (so that would be my child). At the public daycare there are 10 babies for two ladies. That just seems like a lot of kids per adults. However it never seems like mayhem when I go into the daycare to pick/drop off papers or whatever.
With my MIL he will get all of her attention...but then it kind of concerns me that she is 60 years old and that 2 days a week (which she offered) will completely wear her down...
Anyone have any opinions about what I should do? This has been the hardest decision for me to make, and it has completely consumed my life!
