Assuming all goes well with my ultrasound on Thursday, if we can financially swing it, I am going to have to let my newest daycare family go. I feel horrible, but if I had thought in a million years I was actually going to get pregnant on my own, I probably wouldn’t have taken them on. However, I didn’t. I thought that we had a good year at least before we would get a baby via adoption and even then, your body isn’t going through all the changes it does when pregnant.
This family consists of a 3 yr old and a 4 mo. old. The baby does not sleep. I am getting no breaks in my 10 1/2 hour day and I spent most of yesterday in tears. Morning sickness rolled in this morning. Luckily, I didn’t throw up and it was gone by late morning, but it may not stay that way. I am exhausted, hormonal and I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.
I feel awful. They are a super sweet couple but right now, the extra $280 a week is not feeling worth it. J and I are going to have to have a serious discussion tonight.
