    You guys talking about after giving birth? Cuz if so, I'm still there. After over eight months though the tide is starting to turn. Her hormones not only effect her attitude, but have serious impact on her weight too. Even with breast feeding she's had a hell of a time losing any weight post partum. That's even finally changing though too. She's dropped five pounds in the last two weeks and her appetite is returning to normal. Not only that, but the sex drive is revving up again! Yeah buddy!!!

    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.

    Transition? I call it relief lol

    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

    Yea, I went back to work right away so I'm used to leaving. Our lady will do the same thing for us with the date nights which is awesome. My Mother in law actually came up on Saturday to watch her so we could go to dinner. It was very relaxing! And I won the bet that my wife would text her mom while we were out checking in. Lol, only took her 45 minutes.

    With our first, we went the in home route for the first 2 years as well. The hardest part we had was finding a really good one that we trusted. We interviewed about 20 of them and it is incredible to me the conditions people will leave their kids in for another person to watch over. If you get a good one, it is a great way to start because the extra attention and small enrollment is more comforting (to us at least). We transitioned in by planning our work schedules to allow her to go for a couple of hours and then over the course of the week, added an extra hour each day. We only have ever done daycare part time, thankfully, but that is how we did it.

    Both of my kids are in daycare, we started with the home daycare first thinking it was better.. We were wrong, when it's at a persons home there is no one looking over them and they are not following state guidelines. At daycare they are spot checked by the state and they keep all the kids in line with behavior issues and vaccinations.. We caught the home daycare women out blowing leaves with the kids in the house by themselves!!! Never again..at daycare I can see my kids on camera at work

    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

    This was big in the news a couple years ago. Honestly, it should be a lot more shocking, but with the nuts in this world and what you hear happening to children, it is sad to say that it just pops up as a quick blurb on the news and you never hear about it again.

    So our little girl will be two months on Sunday, time flies! Crazy how much different she is already, and is only getting up 1-2 times a night now! Mom and dad are both a lot more rested. Only thing I've had to change is I used to lift in the morning, but with the wife going back to work soon and needing to get the baby ready for daycare I just wont have time for that. But I found a gym down the street from my work so I'll be getting it on my lunch break. Gotta adapt!

    Glad everything is going well.

    It does feel like yesterday. When I look at pictures from the first couple of weeks and compare them to now.......holy crap....she changed a lot.

    I'm in. I recommend reading Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by Dr. Meg Meeker. She wrote one for mothers as well.

    Edit. However, I've been cleaning vomit out of both my daughters' beds all last night and today. There wasn't a chapter on that in the book

    Can't argue with that! And I'll definitely be picking up that book. Insight is always a good thing. however advice from people without kids but have dogs or know someone with a kid is not always a good thing, lol.
