(Re: Late Winter / Early Spring 2010)
Cutting the old lady loose – for good this time. Liam was sick over the winter after he turned four. Fever, first ear infection, burst eardrum, more fever. The trouble with fevers and preschool? He can’t go if he’s had a fever in the last 24 hours. The trouble with that? No back up. So we decided to build in a back up plan. So, back to the old lady a couple of days a week. Well, that lasted all of a couple of months. One place had rules and structure and the other didn’t. And behavior at home – well that got worse too. Yikes. Sorry, we know you love Liam, but we have to cut you loose. I feel badly that I didn’t give her more notice, I really do. But when it comes to Liam, we are going to do what is best for him. Period.
