. . . this has been irking me for some time. . . There is no DAY out, as if once a month these moms get a day to deep clean the house, or have a spa treatment, a morning out with the girls that will tide them over until next month
. . . no. . . Mother's Day Out is anywhere from 2-5 days a week for about 4 hours per day. Most of the kids these programs service are young enough that you can't even really call it pre-school. You know what that is people?
It is called part-time daycare for the stay-at-home mom with discretionary funds.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, if I had extra funds I'd do it too (rather than spend every moment of every day in the sheer bliss of mommydom--with no grandparents, aunts or uncles even to babysit every once in a while)
...but let's call it what it is! (and then never badmouth the moms who take their kids to daycare)
