Yes, we use summer daycare

I will confess I am that parent that keeps her child in daycare even when I am not working.  For the past three years we really did not have a choice since I was taking summer classes. However, this year since I am no longer in school we had to make a decision as to how much time if any she would spend at daycare. We decided that even though I did not have to work or go to school this summer she would still attend daycare 2 days a week and every other Friday. This arrangement gives her time with her friends and it gives me time to do all the things that I need to get done.

Madilyn LOVES her daycare teachers and friends. She loves interacting with other kids, learning, and being on a regular school day  schedule. She especially loves water day at the the on-site splash park. I made sure she was scheduled to go to daycare on water day. When we keep her home she spends most of her day asking to go see her friends. I am trying to keep a schedule with her on the days that she is home so that she does not get bored.

At first I felt guilty about sending her to daycare when I am not working but now I don’t feel any guilt about my decision. I know that she is having a blast with her friends and I can take care of household items without her being in the way.  When she is home she has my full attention since I am not distracted with everything that needs to be done.
