I was solely at home with our DD for 3 years.
Thanks for responses ladies.
And one of those 'weird' feelings *is* jealousy once I fine tuned my 'what do I feel meter.' It is a little strange, as I can't say I ever experienced that before, but I am being honest, and you are right it does pass. I'm just happy I did find someone who I like, and who dd likes because we never had many options until we moved here.
I should lighten up, because her nutrition is made up for while at home. And I did say something to the lady. I just said there is A, B and C in her bag, I'd be happy if she ate that for breakfast and snack. That was that. I should be pleased too though, because she actually plays with her and does different activities and doesn't plop her in front of the TV, which I appreciate. I see the trashed house when I pick her up, lol.

She is testing her "tummy" and she has fun at her house. This is a good thing!
I have older boys - soon to be 19, 16 and soon to be 14 - let me tell you what
There's a great big beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day... there's a great big beautiful tom

You both bring up good points, I do count my blessings and am grateful to find a person who cares about my kid.
count your blessings.
Am I being picky?
*I* don't think so.
It's funny you should mention that bc here lately I am seeing diificulty with moving from one thing to the next.
This has nothing to do with your relationship with your daughter and everything to do with her developmental phase. All three year olds have trouble with transitions, and that's exactly what this is. She is having trouble transitioning from one activity (childcare) to another (back home.) The babysitter may be trying to help when she tells your daughter she'll be back in a few days, but it's undermining the situation because 1) you feel judged and 2) she's not dealing with your daughter in a developmentally appropriate way.
Call the sitter and tell her something like, "As you can see, my daughter has entered the stage where she needs to be transitioned better from one activity to the next. I'm enlisting your help with this. "
Then suggest that she tell her 10
