When the wife and I had found out we were gonna have an offspring, all the usual stuff happened- the crying, the eyes bleeding, ice cream, a hike in the woods.
The search for a suitable daycare provider and the subsequent happenings were notable, in that there was very little available in the way of guidance for a coupla first-timers save for the advice of our friends who already had kind in daycare. Here and there we found fonts of good advice but for the most part we were on our own to learn things the hard way.
A year or so ago I thought somebody oughtta write a book about getting into and surviving daycare- not for the kids, who are immediately fine, but for the parents.
A year later nobody's done a thing about it so I'm working on it. It's been a fun process and I've got a way to go yet.
So here's my question to you, stranger: what subject matter would you want to see covered in such a book? What experience did you have at daycare that was so bewildering you wish you'd had a heads-up? I've got my list, but I'd like to make the book something really useful and entertaining for as many people as possible.
So please leave me a comment if you've got one. Thanks for glistening!
