Tomorrow will be a big day for A
…. because it will be his first day of two days/week daycare for at least the next few months. One of the things we have to do in order to help J recover from the whole blobby craziness (ie, its existence, SRS and radiation treatment after-effects, and how blobby responds) is to give her some respite from A and C. We love our children dearly (and we went through a heckuvalot to get them) and while J has really enjoyed being a stay-at-home mum right now we need her to get that break which having them out of the house will provide.
Fortunately for us, the local daycare centre (about 500m away) where C was going until October last year had a place for each of them on Thursdays and Fridays. I’ve got a bunch of forms to complete tonight, and I’ll have to make a call to Centrelink tomorrow to get a CRN for A. J would do it, except she hasn’t been able to focus and doesn’t have the stamina right now to stay on hold for the 35+ minutes that we’ve heard it takes to get connected to a person. I wish I could do this online, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get it organised (if it’s possible). Also, it wasn’t until this morning that I managed to find my australia.gov.au online registration details.
It’ll probably be a mad dash in the morning to make sure that I’ve got their bags packed correctly and given how A has been expressing displeasure lately (piercing squeals and general tantrum-y behaviour) I just hope I can get him distracted so I can make my getaway! C will be fine I’m sure – as far as I’m aware several of the kids she got to know there last year are still going on the same days so I’m confident that she’ll slot straight back in.
