The research. The networking. The thrill of the first call. The interview ... from the first "no way in hell" to the last "that person was awesome," I loved every minute of our daycare search. Yep. You read that...
One night, as I was doing the never-ending dishes, I found myself having a pretty negative self-talk dialogue. "I'm so tired, why do my kids eat so much, why do I keep cooking, are theses dishes ever going to end,...
