I can’t even beleive this…

After the miserable bitch ass day I had today..I open my inbox to find out Evan has a spot in the daycare I wanted him to get into for when I go back to work next month after my maternity leave is up. Great. See here in NS it’s a bitch to get a daycare spot, especially for infants under 2, so they tell you to put your name on Daycare waiting lists basically as soon as you finish your first trimester. So I did.
Today I get this..

Hi Jaime;
We have had an unexpected cancellation for one of our infant spaces effective Monday, December 1.  You are on the top of our December 08 Wait List and so I am dropping you a note to offer you this space.  If you are interested, please let me know by return email, or you may call the school and leave a message even over the weekend.  The spot will be offered to the top 5 names on the Wait List and will be reserved based on a first come first served system. Please let us know by Monday noon at the latest and if you are interested, we will set up an interview and review registration information with you at that time.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Oh what the fuck.
    I wish I could undertake some of your pain myself. You’re going through so much all at once and at the worst possible fucking time.

  2. Jeez. I’m sorry you still get these kinds of reminders. That sucks.
    I’d be tempted to just ignore it but then maybe they’ll call you and you’ll end up having to talk to them in person.
    I guess just send them a very blunt email. Ugh.

  3. What horrible timing, I’m sorry.

  4. Fuck.
    Gotta just lay it out:
    “My son died, so we are not going to be needing the spot.”

    • I did, I said we don’t need the spot or any future spots at this time as our son passed away.
      Thanks πŸ™‚

      • There’s just no good way to say it “soft” ya know? And our first inclination as women (humans?) is to apologize for inconveniencing people, but that is so not appropriate for you to do!
        Did you hear back from your MIL yet? (I haven’t checked my FL yet.)

      • No comment from MIL yet, she will surely call husband and say she had no idea and that she is worried about my mental health hahah. Whatever.

  5. oh jesus. like you don’t have enough on your plate to deal with.
