I agree with wanting the little ones with us. Our local MOPS had a “nursery” for the kids. I didn’t feel comfortable leaving my children with people I didn’t know. If MOPS were in a Catholic Church, at least I’d know they’d been screened and Virtus trained. Who knows what screening and training was done with these people? The “leader” Mom (I didn’t end up attending) tried to make it seem like I had some kind of hangup about babysitters. I don’t – it’s just that I screen them carefully.
I never understood people who would just drop their kids off with strangers. A lot of people research their dog kennels more than they research their child care!
Whew – didn’t mean to vent.
