I have a question for Momma's who have been there done that... or others moms who are planning ahead..
I have a 6 year old in first grade and a 4 year old in M,T,W,R 1/2 day preschool. Both schools are 25 minutes apart. Currently I take both girls to school and pick them up. I also take the little one to physical therapy. We are pretty isolated for various reasons (to ask other moms for help) and I am a car seat _freak_ so carpooling is not really an option. Neither of the schools are neighborhood schools and were handpicked to meet the girls needs. Oldest is a touch aspie and the youngest has mild cerebral palsy.
Anyone think a true babymoon is out of the question? Life moves on ya'know? The girls have swim classes and dance classes on Monday and Tuesday. Due to DH's job and other reasons, he isn't going to be able to take the kids to school. I think he will do dance/swim for a week or two but that is about it.
We do have a Nanny two mornings a week for 2-3 hours to help offset the demands of DH's job and the extra stress of the girls needs but financially we can't do more than 2 mornings a week.
It was different when I had one and she was a toddler but now they both are in school.
I imagine the first 1-2 weeks we will have some support from family and hopefully after that I will be on my feet (scheduled c-section). So what are you Mom's planning who have school aged children with a newborn?
