Last night Mark and I were bathing Karter and he asked Daddy to come in the tub. Karter is getting really good at saying "please" is the sweetest voice - how can you not give in. And - we bath him in our jacuzzi tub so there is lots of room for Daddy. So Mark jumps in and Karter points - Daddy BIG. I will leave to your imagination what Karter was pointing too ... Lol.

Mark took advantage of all the snow in our front yard and built a snow fort for Karter. This is one of the many reasons I love my husband. He had one day off work and instead of catching some zzz's when Karter went down for a nap he built him this fort.
Look at how high the snow is compared to Karter in the picture below!!

A couple months ago I had a message on my phone from our cleaning lady's boss stating that we were getting a new cleaning lady. Whatev ... but I must admit it was kind of awkward when I opened the door and it ended up being a cousin of Marks - it was even more awkward that I did not remember her. Lol. Sometimes I have my head stuck up my A*s. Anyway, it did not seem to bother her that she was cleaning our house and Mark was cool with it.
Fast forward to this Monday - cleaning day. I get home from work and Mark's cousin had left us a note - that read:
Just wanted to say Congratulations. I seen the picture on the fridge of the newest member of the family and that is so exciting Karter is going to be a big brother!!
Lol. The picture is of an ultrasound of Karter.
I did call Mark's mom to be prepared for potential phone calls congratulating the grandparents to be.
I guess it is time to take the picture off the fridge and put to rest any future rumors from occuring.

My first reaction was that I totally understood why she is closing, but then the tears started coming as I thought about how much Karter loves her and all his little friends at daycare. Mark, Karter and myself have all grown close to her and her girls. I am truly sad.
Then when I got in the car panic mode kicked in - Oh crap - I only have ONE month to get Karter into another daycare.
I had a difficult time before finding a great dayhome for K. And - from the sounds of it another difficult time may be in store.
For some reason I held on to the Arbor Creek newsletter when it was delivered a couple months ago. The newsletter has a listing of daycare providers in our area. Anyway - I started calling a couple places today and they are booked for the next couple years. Lol. The one lady did say she could get K in until June. Not sure if I want a quick fix for him though - getting use to her and then boom he has to go somewhere else - not fair. We do have the option of my mom coming up to watch K during the week until we find someone. I also mentioned to Mark that he should not go to school and to open a daddy daycare - he didn't bite!!
I do have an iterview on Monday night - and by interview I mean K and I are getting Interviewed to see if he is a good fit. Lol. The rate is a bit high - if he goes 5 days a week it is $800/month until he is potty trained - then it is $700/month. But - I am a firm believer that you pay for what you get. Her numbers are low and it seems like she has a really good program for the kids.
I am still looking and will call more daycares tonight.
If anyone knows of a daycare taking kids in the Arbor Creek/Erindale/Willowgrove area please let me know!!
