Mamas.. today was our FIRST day leaving Monroe with his sweet sitter for half the day.. and.. knock on wood.. it went so great! We are blessed to have her come to the house before I have to leave for the studio and then she stays for about 4 hours until I get home :) For me.. it's going to be the perfect balance of work outside the home one day a week and it just worked out so perfectly for her to come over! I honestly wasn't sad leaving him.. is that bad? I actually used to work with the gal who is watching him and totally trust her.. so it's amazing what peace of mind can give you :) Upon return home, she said it went great and he was such a happy babe most the time :) She fed him, changed him, they played on the play mat.. heck, we think STELLA is going to think she comes to play with her every Thursday.. haha!
Tell me, did you ever have your sitter come to your house? I find it SO easy.. Monroe can stay in his own environment!
But if it's my mom it gets tough because she talks a lot. lol. Even though I tell her that I need her to hang out with him because I'm working, she sits here and talks my ear off. So that makes it really hard. BUT.. as far as the sitter being at my house? Yes, I prefer it!
