Weird Meeting

Let's just stay home, Mama
Still processing the Mothers of Preschoolers program I went to today.

Jane stayed in a strange, new-to-her nursery for two hours. She was absolutely fine -- she went willingly with the workers (whom neither of us knew) when I dropped her off, but she was a little manic looking when I picked her up. I think part of it was no morning nap -- program started at 9:30 a.m., which is when she usually starts snoozing. She still needs that nap.

I also think she was probably shell shocked from lack of doting (which she gets when she stays in our church's nursery on Sundays). There were probably 8 babies in the room with two workers, and she wasn't crying/needing attention all the time like some of the other babies were.

I don't know if we'll go back. Not only does the schedule not really work for us nap-wise, but it's also kind of expensive mostly to pay for the child care (today was a free try out). I might want to spend my money on something else -- like a Mother's Day Out or gym membership (although many of the moms at the program seemed to do all of those as well as stay home ... hmmm).

The meeting is only twice a month, so I have a couple weeks to decide.
