OMG don’t even get me started on day care. I just talked to the director of my eldest sons day care (he is in before and after school care only) and just found this out. They only have 30 spots for B&A care. All 30 kids are staying on for next year which means that… The 20 kids that are in the Senior Kindergarten room are SOL as far as after care for next school year (in this DC anyhow). AND the school may still pull some of the space they rent to the DC cause our schools population is growing at a staggering pace. Which means that the 30 B&A spaces could turn into 15… And then I would be SOL… AHAHAHAHAHAH One can only cry and then laugh and the cry again.

I read the article yesterday. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. I have a post I need to write that’s sort of related but I’m too tired to write it now.
