Phew... what a day. Today's a big tax deadline, so it's been nuts around the office lately. I am SO ready for this weekend! We're taking off tomorrow to visit daycares. Some close to my work and some close to the house. But after sitting in traffic for over an hour last night trying to get home from work, I think I've about decided one near the office makes the most sense! Granted, our house and my work are only 15-20 minutes apart. Basically two exits down the interstate. But in metro-Atlanta, you never know when a 15-minute commute will suddenly be a 90-minute commute. Nine times out of ten, it's a breeze (I am lucky in that regard) - but you just never know.
Y'all gave me lots of good tips on what to ask pediatricians... so what about daycare questions? Any must-ask things that should be on our list? Don't go thinking, "Oh she'll know to ask that - that's so obvious." We haven't had our expert parenting classes yet! So nothing is too obvious for me. Any advice on what to look for is certainly appreciated. I haven't been in a daycare since *I* was enrolled in one.
We're also getting started on our registry this weekend! Big fun... and big time overwhelming! We're planning to do BRU and Buy Buy Baby but I'm not sure we'll get to hit both this weekend. BRU may do us in. Right now I'm trying to narrow down our baby gear choices - strollers and car seats particularly. I'm consulting my Baby Bargains book and Consumer Reports to come up with the best candidates, so I can at least narrow things down before we go to the stores this weekend. Should be fun!
Our bedding arrived yesterday, so I will get pics of that sweet goodness up soon! It is gorgeous, and kudos to Carousel - my custom order arrived in less than a week! I also have some fun birthday plans coming up here in a few weeks! I'll tell y'all about that soon. I have a few more fires to put out this afternoon.... gotta run!
