I interviewed yesterday for the job to work @ home. I think it went really well and I should know something by early next week. The best part...she said she can't find any other candidates w/the skillset she is looking for...that works to my advantage hopefully.
The hospital had a job fair yesterday. I found out on the way to work in the morning, heard it on the radio. O came home early so I could race up there before it was over. It was REALLY good. I'm not sure if they didn't have many people or if it was because I came near the end, but I don't think there were more than 2-3 other candidates there (if that). I spoke with 4 people about the HUC job that I want. One of the folks I spoke with has a need for a night shift HUC in the ER so I ended up talking to him for quite a while and also got a tour of the ER. Pretty cool. We'll see what happens there but it will likely be a slow process.
We are on day 3 of daycare and it's NOT going well...here's why: when my MIL was here, E was consuming 16 oz during the workday so I took four 4oz bottles to daycare on Monday. He only consumed about 10-12 oz and they dumped the rest of the breastmilk (AKA 'liquid gold') out..gulp!! In addition, they document the diaper changes on a paper that is given to me @ the end of the day, however they only had diaper changes documented through 10:45am and I picked him up at 3:30pm on Monday - so what happened there? Turns out they FORGOT to document the rest...O was NOT happy about that - nor was I, however I knew they had changed him, but I still think they need to make a point to accurately document EVERYTHING.
Note: This is a NEW daycare. They should be STELLAR with all that they do as they are going to be evaluated AND graded by the state (star system). Also, reputation is a HUGE thing.
Day 2 of daycare was equally bad although they did apologize for the poor documentation on Monday. I took four 3oz bottles for him. (They chalked up his lack of eating on Monday to it being his first day). I figure if they aren't going to take the time w/him that my MIL did for him to eat 4oz, then I'll keep the milk @ home where we can use it when I'm away from Ethan. Anyway....they documented that he consumed 11oz however I came home with one full bottle....let's do the math...at most he could have only consumed 9 oz!!!! WTF? Now I'm getting irritated.
So now you see why I was/am so bent-outta-shape about daycare. No matter how 'good' they look when you visit...you really don't know until your child is there and then you are STUCK. I would not be as upset about all this had I been taking him there for months and they neglected to document something etc. as I would have established a relationship with the gals there and would know that it was simply an oversight...but on the FIRST AND SECOND DAY....I don't like it!!! I feel like when you have a NEW 'client' (baby & mom) that at least they should have made EVERY effort to make sure everything was PERFECT so as to put 'nervous moms' at ease...(the owner KNEW I was upset when I dropped him off).
Too bad for them today - O is dropping E off and so they will have to 'deal' with him. Honestly, he handles it professionally, but he is definitely more aggressive than I am...but @ this point I think that's what they need to hear. O has a training class across the street so he'll also pay them a lunch time visit. :-)
