The Universe decides it's time for a change...

Nina called this evening. She won't be able to take care of Ethan anymore... starting tomorrow (Monday). They want her on day shift instead of evenings. NOOOO!!!! We've really loved having him with Nina, and I'm totally dreading having to start looking for somewhere else. I can't even express how disappointed and upset I am about this. She was so great for us, and for Ethan; she really cared about him. And not only that, but we could actually afford to pay for care when he was with her. And then, add to that the fact that we got less than 24 hours notice that we wouldn't have daycare for the next day, and you have a less than stellar Sunday evening on your hands. Ugh to the nth degree.

After a lot of discussion about it, we finally decided that Joel will stay home with Ethan until we can figure something else out. I just don't think we can afford to pay for yet another daycare registration fee + the $250/week, and then still have to worry about what's happening while he's at the center all day long. It was so nice to have one-on-one daycare for him; it made it possible for me to actually go in to work without being in constant pain and completely distracted the whole time worrying about him. Now, what do we do? Lose all of Joel's income, I guess. It's just ridiculous. It's like someone doesn't want us to succeed, or something; once we start getting somewhere happy and safe and okay, everything goes haywire and we have to re-balance, adjust, and try to put the pieces back together. Can't things just work out, for once? Please?!??!
