I have interspersed this post with lots of beautiful mama bear prints I found on ETSY.
Click any of the links to look at some very cool artwork:-)So, by nature I am a bit feisty. When I don't like something, I will be the first to tell you. I have a strong sense of justice- and don't like it when people are treated unfairly. I probably write at least one letter a week to some lawmaker about something that is irritating me. I am the one who is constantly posting links on my facebook page to one petition or another. I teach a class about unlearning racism. I don't like authority figures. I don't believe in complaining without action. I have been this way since I was a little girl. So- how might this translate into being a mom?
So, this week I looked at numerous different day cares. Some were full of play with no focus on academics- others were too focused on academics with no play - some were a bit shady - some didn't feel very safe- and some were extremely expensive. Is it too hard to find something that encourages children to learn, is fun, safe, and affordable? I finally settled on one- to find out today, that they are at full enrollment. So, I will begin looking at more preschools tomorrow.
Sorry for the long tirade. I am just really struggling. She really is a lot like me growing up. Where do I send her? Will I be writing letters to caregivers forever? Is this normal? Will I ever calm down?
Thanks for listening.
