We are most fortunate that Asher is in the family day care circuit and spends his days with either my Mom (2 days/week), his Dad (2 days/week) or me (1 day). This is not only very gentle on our wallets, but it’s great because Asher gets to spend his time with people that are fairly certain that the sun rises and sets on his little red head. My mom asks every week what her ‘homework’ is and together we’ve gotten Asher sleeping unswaddled, sitting up, eating 2 square meals during the day and more. It’s so great to have her in our court, and extra special that Asher gets to spend this time with his “Mina”. It’s a win-win in my book! Another bright spot? Mom updates me throughout the day with quick little photos or a flip video so that I can still be a part of their day while I’m at work. In this way, she’s not only spoiling Asher rotten, but continuing to spoil me as well, and I just love her for it. Here are Asher’s pictures from Mina’s today…he’s loving playing by himself these days!

There’s nothing not to love about the family day care circuit. (And white oak baskets like the one he’s playing with.)
I love that you noticed the basket! Although we don’t have a basket weaver in our family as you do, we do have friends that make baskets, and I believe that this is one of theirs. 🙂
Love the name MINA — who came up with that?
And how lucky young Asher is to have the family day care circuit!
Well, I started called Mom Momina at some point, so we just pulled it from that, and it seems easy enough for the kids to say which is a big bonus! (Not that Asher is taking any stabs at that of course, but Jack does quite well with it).
Aww. This post just gets me teary-eyed. What a Mina! I wouldn’t call this daycare, I would call this really good-loving! You are so lucky.
