Why would you keep ties with her?
Good Question... I think it hurts so badly because she had become part of our family. She would come with us just to run errands sometimes if she was just hanging out at home. Her husband, me, my husband, and Addison would go out to dinner about once every two weeks. Even her husband had watched my LO for me once when she was sick!
Maybe I just can't believe she chose this disgusting daycare over us?
I definitely pay more but can't give her 38 hours per week. She had about 20 hours per week here, but I paid more per hour.
I feel like I've lost, not just a babysitter, but a friend... a family member. Maybe that's my problem.
