What a week! Did I forget how hard it was to work while having a 2 year old? She absolutely wears us out!!! Well, to start at the beginning, last Monday I took Kaitlyn to her new daycare for a half day before starting my part-time job on Tuesday... I ended up having to completely come up with a "Plan B"! Long story short, they did not make a good first impression when she arrived- the Director did not even take 5 minutes with me to go over her paperwork, collect any money, have a place for me to put her things, or even welcome her into the class! Most importantly, they did not change her pull-up for the full 4 hours she was there (I would put $100 on it). It's a shame because the place has a good reputation and I liked her teacher (who happened to be out that day), but it was just unacceptable!
Justin and I were a little disturbed... I was close to panicking (yes, I really was), and Justin went driving around to see what other good places nearby he could find. Luckily he saved the day and found a place while purchasing a snowboard from someone off Craigslist (he does not waste any time). I immediately called and loved the Director, told her our situation and me and Kaitlyn visited at 4pm that afternoon. At 5:30pm we were on our way to the other place to collect her belongings. So just in the nick of time, she went to the new school Tuesday morning and I went to my first day of work at the Bozeman Northwestern Mutual office! It was a success- she said she had fun, her teacher said she did great, and what almost was a disaster turned out ok!
Easter was a blast this weekend- The weather was beautiful, and we were out and about checking out all the fun things going on around town!
THE TERRIBLE TWO'S:
So this is not a myth, they really go through a terrible stage, and we do not like it! She has been obstinate, whiny, clingy, stubborn...hmmmm....difficult, hangs on you, wallers (some people have never heard this word- my mom used it when we were growing up: it means to roll and flail around regardless of your surroundings or what someone's asking you to do). The whining really gets us- Do they realize that they are whining and that it doesn't get them anywhere? Hopefully this stage passes soon!
We hope everyone had a Happy Easter and a great weekend!
