Sorry for posting this here, but I have a lot more respect for your opinions than those on TB.
As you know, we lost the nanny. (Oddly, her H emailed us the week before last to say that she'd be home the weekend before last, and that her doctor released her from bed rest and cleared her to go back to work. He said she'd be available starting last week, but since neither of them have returned our phone calls or emails, we're writing her off for good.)
DD has been waitlisted at one daycare since I was 2nd tri (didn't even know if she was a girl or a boy yet), and we recently put her on a second wait list. In the mean time, I have an interview next week, and DH is still looking so we don't know exactly where he'll end up working.
There's another daycare right across the street from the office park where I'm interviewing. If I ended up taking that job, do you think the everyday convenience would outweigh the PITA factor if I'm traveling or sick or something and DH had to drop her off? There's a chance he might end up working in the same direction, but there's a much bigger chance that he wouldn't.
What's your experience? Is it easier having DC close to work, or close to home?
