Question to the single Moms

  1. Hey guys, so I have a question. I am married but my husband will be deploying so so basically, during school I will be on my own with 3 year old.

    We are stationed on the other side of the country from any family so my question is this: what did you do/do you do with your little children when they get sick and can't go to daycare? It says on my program website that I can't miss more then 3 days in the 10 months it runs or I will get kicked out. That really worries me.

    My kids rarely got sick but if they did I had a family member watch them. Try your best to prevent your kid from getting sick such as increasing their vitamin C intake, dress them properly etc. There are nanny websites that you could google so that you are able to have a back up plan AND also, try and talk to some of your neighbors and good luck hun

    Some in home daycares may be able to help with that. They sometimes charge by day. It depends though on how severe it is. I don't have family were I live but I had to have a back up on top of a back up for work and will for school.

    I will be in the same boat. The month after I start nursing school my husband will deploy. I have 5 kids...YIKES! Is there another military wife that you can get help from? Military daycare providers have something called mildly ill care. You should look into that.

    You could start interviewing babysitters now as an emergency back up plan. Try -- it's free for military families.
