Goodbye Is The Saddest Word
Yesterday wasn't the easiest day. It marked Alex's official last day at the sitter he's had for pretty much the last 10 years. We didn't know up until this week if he'd be able to go back when I went back to work, the original plan was for me to accomodate the other parents relocating their children where I'm still on leave. However the stars and moons have not aligned and Alex won't be able to go back (thanks province of new brunswick) when I go back to work in April. Now begins the daunting task of finding him somewhere to go! Who wants to occupy a slot for a kid for three sole months? It's one of those times I really wish we had some family closer. I haven't been getting much help from the other adult in this house with regards to the matter which is even more frustrating. Why it always has to be me to sacrafice my career and vacation time I don't know. I wish more men had great male role models like my dad.
