We welcomed Thatcher into the world on February 10, 2011, and while this means that we no longer spend quite as many Friday nights grabbing drinks at The Columns or Sundays walking around the French Quarter before Saints games, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Later this year Thatcher will become a big brother, and we’re all very excited to meet his little sister! We’re looking forward to sharing our favorite hometown traditions with both of them as they grow up.
Because we both work full-time, we had to navigate the tricky world of daycare selection in New Orleans about one and a half years ago. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was totally lost when we first started looking into options. I found that there were not as many choices as I was hoping for, and figuring it all out was more complicated than I was anticipating. After talking to several other moms in the area, I discovered that I was not alone. I’ve compiled some advice and guiding questions to hopefully make daycare selection just a little easier. If you have any ideas to add, I’d love to hear them!
