Parenting 28 months: Back to daycare
Day care does have certain consequences. First, he is now sick all the time. They definitely learn to share in day care. And he brings it home. So we have had a sick household this past month. And we have had to skip our usual museum outings (daddy is very unhappy about this).
Some other things that come with daycare and being sick. We've noticed that his attention span has declined. So he does not focus on one thing for extended periods such as a single toy or reading multiple books in succession like he used to. Almost like a normal toddler.
The months seem to settle in a rhythm. Get up. Get him ready for day care. All of us leave the house. Someone picks him up after work. Eat, play, put him to bed. More work after he goes to bed. Repeat. Hoping that he gets better this month.
