I've been doing some variation of that for about six months now (eight month old daughter). And it's been treating me well. Follow my log. It's called Making the Superman.

Really it's all about the wife man. If she's awesome she'll understand and take it on while you're at the gym

Thankfully I've been really lucky and my wife bounced back really quickly. She's her good ol self already and we're enjoying this ride together! Had the mother in law in town over the weekend so we got to have our first dinner out since the baby was born. Amazing how refreshing a two hour meal together can be!

It's an odd place I find myself in being the father of adult children, in particular, my daughter. She is so much like me in more ways than I like. Dad's pay attention - they are watching you - always - especially your little girls. Be your best at all times.
Her dreams fulfilled have inspired me to act on my dreams - maybe sping of 2014

So we're getting to the last month before my wife goes back to work and we have to put our daughter in daycare. We're going with a small in home one which we like and am just curious what others experience was with this transition. I know my wife is looking forward to getting back to work but is struggling with having to leave her.

Mini-me is stuck with me until he's 18 years old. I can afford a few hours during the day without him! But, when we first started, it was in-home daycare like yours. We trusted the family (being on a military base helps) They were very professional and well mannered. They insisted on taking him every Friday night for a few hours on the Fridays I wasn't on duty, so that the wife and I could have a date night. We didn't know what to do with ourselves, and we ended up picking him up early the first few times.
Now he's at a school type daycare. The days I have off work, I drop him off, take a short nap, workout, grab some groceries and walk the dog, then I'll pick him up. So you'll get used to it real fast haha

There are definitely those types of places, but trust me that the big places that are supposedly overlooked by the state are not any better if you don't do your leg work and investigate them. If you read up on them, you'll see that many of them have been reported on and have warnings against them. Once we moved our daughter out of the in home and into daycare/preschool/preK place that my wife's friend owns, we researched every place within 10 miles of our house and it is staggering the number of infractions places are allowed to have. Not only that, but the places you would think are the top rated are not immune.
Point being, one is not better than the other. You need to research and interview these places and always have your eyes open even after that.

Yea, our in home person is actually liscensed with the state so that's awesome. We met with quite a few other ones and I can't believe how ****ty some of them were. One lady hadn't even cleaned her house, garbage sitting out and said that she has the kids nap on a towel on the floor. I couldn't get out of there fast enough, lol.

I'll tell you that the licensing process for in home is a complete joke. We knew some people that were licensed and were the biggest pigs ever and the state actually lets them know ahead of time when they will be visiting for inspection. So they would make everything perfect and get all the paperwork lined up for a week, not knowing which day it would be, and then go right back to the slummy people they were.
Licensing and state run bologna is no replacement for gut feeling and thorough research.
Not saying anyone here isn't doing that, just putting my general comment out there after having gone through this process for such a long time with 2 kids.

We've got a school type. We just moved here a year ago and with no ties/hookups we had to do the leg work ourselves in researching facilities. We've had minor issues with ours (a missed diaper here, going a little too long between bottles there, etc). But for the most part they've been doing good. Our little girl is happy, healthy, and developing how she should. But with the money we're paying, that better damn well be the case!!! In about two more years, my wife should be able to quit her job and stay home full time.

We're lucky cause ours is a close friend of one of our friends and is highly recommended. We've dropped in a few times un announced so we are very confident she'll be in good hands

It takes awhile my little boys almost 2 and still wakes up a few times a night, and my wife sleeps like a rock(if a rock sounded like a chainsaw lol) so I'm the one that gets up for him. Anyone got some potty training tips
