I have never used daycare for any of my children. I just used baby-sitters. With foster care finding a correctly certified sitter is difficult in my state. I have not yet found one, I have two friends who are working on finishing all their clearances and back round checks, but it has been over 6 months and I don't feel like pressuring them right now.
Therefore, I'm considering daycare for Primo. Not every day, but for a few days a month so that I can have some set times to schedule my own appointments and maybe a wee bit of alone time?
I'm sure my first challenge will be finding a daycare facility that will take him for only a few days/half days a month.
What do you do when you need a sitter? I'm pretty sure that some states have much more relaxed standards for baby-sitters who care for foster children, I wish I lived in one of those states.
