TGIF ... My New Venture... {My Ramblings}

I am going to do things a little different today.  I am going to do my postings this evening (so please come back tonight or Saturday morning and check in).  I have had a lot of appointments and am doing a great deal of research...I am about to embark in an exciting journey.

I have decided to start a home daycare center.  I have been on the phone with the licensing department, etc.  I am a former child protective service worker and have my degree in Psychology.  I was actually working on a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology when Savvy was born and the roller coaster with liver disease began. 

I have been thinking about this idea for a while and finally approached my husband with it last night.  I was ready for the {debate} ... I mean our entire downstairs will be converted in a child care environment rather then a living room/dining room.  To my delight he is very supportive of the idea and thinks I will be wonderful at it...nothing like a little ego boost from the hubby to make a girls day! 

I have my first licensing meeting and am already working on a curriculum (with help from my sister who is a teacher - I want a rich environment for my child and the one's in my care).  I would love to hear from you if you are an at home provider or if you use an at home provider....Tips, advice, ideas....
