Well, after lots of searching, we're pretty much settled on the uber expensive day care place.  Don't get me wrong, the place is awesome and well worth the money.  But it also happens to be the only place we could find that offers flexible drop off times.  Many of the other day care places are like schools in that they offer a curriculum so they have a set schedule.  Since I'm working part-time hours at the moment, I only need to have him taken care of during those hours.  So, this place wins by default more or less.  Its going to kill me to shell out $1300 a month....

Ouch! I hate it costs so much.

Me too. What sucks even more is that now that I'm part-time, day care will eat up basically my entire monthly salary. Thank god, we were smart and didn't blow all our money over the years and have saved wisely. Its only temporary, so as much as it hurts, I can live with it for a bit.

Yikes. I don't know how people manage the day care thing these days. But my mom (a retired school teacher) is a nanny now, and just loves it. I don't know which would be more expensive, but at least your little guy gets to socialize with other kiddies this way. :)

In-home nannies, I think are more expensive, but don't quote me on that. It's really hard to be a working parent these days, but then again the economy is so bad that you have to be a working parent. Gone are the days when one parent stayed home with the kids.... But it will definitely be good for the baby to get some social skills.
