DNA test scheduled

We heard this evening that the final dna test & medical appt is scheduled for this Thursday!  Roughy 7 – 10 days after the test, the sample is confirmed & to the embassy.  The embassy then usually takes 2 – 5 days to issue a “pink.”  Lately the embassy appts have been about a week from pink.  This would put us at memorial week.  Unforunatley, that’s a crappy week for joe and I so we think we’ll reschedule/request the appt will be the first or second week in June. 

Joe and I also found a day care that we really like.  It’s four blocks from our house so it’s convenient for both of us.  The people seemed really cool and it was clean.  It’s part of a k-8 so we like that there is a gym for those miserable, cold MN days.   There is also a library.  The only thing I’m not loving so much is that we need to supply the food while he is in the infant room.  While he’s on baby food, no problem.  But, once he switches to table food – oy man.  I hate, hate, hate having to also think about this.  But, once he gets in the toddler room there is lunch and afternoon snack.  The weird thing is that they feed them at like 11:30 – I mean, what’s up with that?  There is an afternoon snack but this seems like a daily dinner meltdown waiting to happen.  Oh well, guess we’ll cross this bridge when we get to it.  Uh.  daycare in MN is so expensive, think a car payment a week expensive.  I guess that’s what we signed up for though.
