You’ve gotta do what’s best for your child

As you all know, we recently switched the Littlest Brewster to a home daycare rather than a commercial daycare center. This wasn’t a decision we reached lightly, as we loved the place where LB was. But we did ultimately decide to make the switch in May. And it was awesome.

But you’ve gotta do what’s best for your child. And I believe this applies to all parents, not just us. Because I’m nice like that.

So when L, our daycare provider, first told me that she was switching her daughter to a different school, I was like, “Great.” Because the schools right next to our house aren’t the greatest and I completely understand wanting better than mediocre.

But when we realized that this new school was a 25 minute drive, each way, and that LB was going to be in the car for almost 2 extra hours a day, we were like “Not great.”

I understand that L is doing what’s best for her child. We are going to do what we think is best for our child and transfer her back to the center where she used to be.

Coming to this decision was not fun and it’s been sort of like a messy break-up between us and L. I am dreading going over there to pick up LB’s poster and diapers and lovie. We really like L and would have liked this to work out for months and years to come.

But you gotta so what’s best for your child. Even if it means you have to do things that are uncomfortable for you.

As Neil Sedaka sang in the 1960s, “Breaking up is hard to do.”
