Mother’s Day Out?

January 29, 2011 at 1:57 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Ever since the kids were born it seems like there is always a new issue to make a decision on. What car seats to buy, when to turn the car seats around, when to let them eat peanut butter, when to let them have a blanket in their crib. I wish kids came with an instruction manual…man it would make life easier. unfortunately they don’t come with an instruction manual and there isn’t really a right and wrong answer to most of these issues. As parents we just have to read about all sides and decide what we are going to do.

Recently Jason and I have been discussing Mother’s day out. I started looking in to it a little bit and realized that a lot of programs are already having sign ups for next fall. Crazy huh? Several of the programs I found run from 9 to 2ish which just seems like a really long time for the kids to be gone. Also it isn’t exactly cheap to send two kids to mother’s day out. Don’t get me wrong I could definitely use a few hours to get some stuff done but I question if they will really benefit from this or if it is really just day care?

We haven’t made a final decision but I think we are leaning towards skipping mother’s day out and possibly signing them up for another class of some kind. We attend a gymboree class once a week and the kids love it. It has been really fun to seem them progress. Leah has really been loving it recently. She seems to remember the songs and the schedule of activities and gets excited when certain parts of the class start. Jack also enjoys it and is getting pretty brave. He is not afraid of walking away from mommy and will get right in there and play with the big kids. It has been a nice way for us to get out of the house and the kids to get some energy out. We will definitely send the kids to preschool when they are three but are going to think about mother’s day out for a while longer.
