DSS will be starting daycare in the next few weeks. He was three in August. We have been very lucky in being able to keep him home this whole time. Since we moved back to my home town things have been very tense. I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone's business. Because of this very reason we keep mostly to ourselves.
Right around the time I became pregnant in July, I lost one of my best friends here. My SIL witnessed my friend's DH out on a date with another woman.... Being the good friend that I am, I told her. Her DH lied until she got the truth out of him. Que drama. Her DH calls my phone and harasses me, telling me to stay out of their business and what not. My DH was very upset that this happened as was our whole family. My friend and I were very close. I back off, and let them be. To my surprise my friend never talks to me again. This was the third time her DH had been accused of cheating. I have been round and round in my head about this. I have not bothered her or tried to contact her. We have enough on our plate as is.
Here's the worry I have. Her DH's sister works at the daycare I plan on sending DSS to in a couple of weeks. The daycare is a great facility. The owner is one of my parent's close friend's daughter. She was also my baby sitter. They not only have a great place but a preschool built into the program and certified teachers who are in charge of that program.
I may be worrying for nothing but this is a SMALL town. The girl is a young girl who knows who I am has of course given me the stink eye in Wal-Mart. I don't want to insult the owner and go to another daycare. There aren't that many in this county as is. I want him in her program and the one on the way too, once I start back to school. I don't want to bring this up with the owner because I feel like it shouldn't matter. But I don't want my child mistreated either.
How do I handle this?
