um...honey I don't know how to break it to you but there are a WHOLE lot of "heteros' engaging in all sorts of activity but it doesn't make them 'gay' -- (picking out the china and buying matching berkenstocks however would make me suspicious)

Well there you go!
In BDA, when I lived there, they'd have been deported for said activity if non Bermudan, and, thrown in jail if they were Bermudan.
Crazy place.

Actually having FT SAHM friends and full-time working mom friends is a really good thing.

You want the day. Bottom line. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks. What if 50 SAHM's came here and told you they don't want their kid in daycare even a day and that they got all their work done with the kids around? You wouldn't need the day anymore. Not likely, so put her in daycare and take your day.

I think whatever you want to do is fine, but be prepared to not want a day away. I used to ride my bike for hours every day off ( I work

Wow -- it always amazes me how different babies are. My ex husband and I referr to Liza's infancy as 'the Bataan death march" I remember crying in Walmart once b/c an errand only took me 20 minutes and I diidn't want to go home to that screaming red faced nonsleeping ball of fury LOL!

now that she's 9 -- whole different story - lots of fun. As an infant? I can't imagine thinking her nap was too long to be away from her -- LOL!

I hear you! While my Ryan is a smiley happy sweetie, his cousin was a challenge. She cried nonstop for 24 hours a day for the first 6 months. The good news is, she hasn't cried since. (I exaggerate). I guess you should prepare for yourself for all sorts of things before you have a baby, who knows what life will become.

I only have one child and can only speak from personal experience, which was that daycare at 5 months for DD was very stressful for her because she was a bad sleeper and the staff didn't have the time to spend half an hour rocking her to sleep for her naps (we got a nanny instead). If it were me I'd put her in day care two mornings or afternoons
