Failure to Communicate

There's a big difference between being able to watch new kids in September and being able to watch new kids in September until 2:30PM only.  My wife's plan was to ease back into work with a week of half days, but the lady we were relying on interpreted this as "I work half days".  When she came to pick up our girl the first day, there were five kids running around (two were the day care lady's own, two were the other kids who were now out of school, and one was our infant).  Day care lady is licensed to care for two kids (besides her own).  She suggested that my wife work 7AM-3PM, which would be just peachy if she weren't a secretary. 

So we have one week to find a new solution.  And our temporary backup solution (free, at least) involves adding about 40 minutes to our commute.  This bites.
