Anyone else feel like this? I start my lpn program in 64 days..been waiting & dreaming & planning for 15 years for this...I'm married, 3 kids, onein first grade, one in second, one in sixth. I'm starting to drive myself nuts over all the little things I haven't thought much about. Like, what if one of my kids is sick & no one will watch them & I have to miss a very big exam???? What about snow days? What if one gets sick at school & I can't get there? Then it just hit me a few weeks ago, there will be 2 mornings a week when I have to leave before the bus gets here..about 45 minutes differnce. DH is a truck driver && leaves the house around 2 am...he's home 2 days during the week, but of course not the 2 I need...so, what do I do? I need someone out here by 7am, and any teenager in the area will have already gone to school by then...there are both sets of very involved grandparents, who are always willing tohelp, but I think that would be asking alot, to drive the 10 miles out here that early for the next 10 months!! No one seems to be offering their help for this....do any of you think a sixth grade girl could handle getting the other 2 out to the bus? Should I try? I would have clothes, backpacks, cereal, etc.. all set out, she would just have to get them up & make sure teeth & hair are brushed & get them out the door. What do you think? I really don't have too many other options, unless I just put my guilt aside & demand a grandparent come out. I've laid awake nights lately..it's just all hitting me & it seems impossible that it's going to work out..I've never worked and I have never had to rely on anyone else to watch my kids, so I have no established system or routine for this. I certainly know that no daycare will take 3 kids at 6:30 in the morning & get them to school for me...not that I could pay if there was a place like that. Any advice would be great.
