There were 3 COVID positive cases in the infant room at daycare and it’s closed for 2 weeks. This is the second time that it’s happened this year. Deloitte offers backup care but we have to wait until we get our negative test results first. Baby girl seems fine but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Work is going to be challenging for the next few days since my husband and I both have demanding jobs.

Ugh! My daycare sent a note today offering free weekly covid tests to all kids (and teachers of course). I can’t decide if I want to opt in for the peace of mind or not but honestly my first thought wasn’t fear of covid, it was fear of closures. What a world we live in

It’s so difficult for us because we don’t really have family support either.

D1: I know you suggested this with good intention but finding a nanny this time of the year is an uphill battle and worse, it doesn’t help OP currently while dealing with baby and work pressure. Many of us select daycare because A. The cost of nanny is insane right now with labor shortage B. We live in smaller houses and don’t have the luxury to have more people in the same quarters during working hours C. Are tired of nanny taking sick days or time off without notice (this is probably 1 in 100 but I have experienced this and that has put me off having nanny). I wish it was as easy as just hiring a nanny and covid exposure situation would be solved, but it’s not.

I have a nanny and we send my toddler to daycare part time. Having a nanny does not solve the ‘nonsense’. And it’s pretty rude/inconsiderate to call daycare nonsense and assume everyone can afford a nanny. But thanks for the super helpful suggestion

Came to commiserate. We just got a notice that 2 kids at our child’s preschool tested positive. The kids are in a different room, but participate in one of the add on sports activities with my daughter. I’m guessing we’re dealing with Thanksgiving fallout. We’re waiting to hear whether our kiddo can go back to school, or if she has to quarantine.

How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them.

I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?
