My mom and I sat down with Kayla’s mom over a cup of coffee this morning. I needed clarification as to exactly what the situation is, why she cannot have Kayla home over weekends and why Kayla is not in Grade R.
Basically it’s her hours. As I have said before. She starts working at 06h30 in the mornings and only gets home at 15h00. She has no-one to take care of Kayla during that time. So she’ll stay with us on weekends.
As to the Grade R. She can’t get a subsidy for Grade R, since it’s not compulsory (although it will be soon). I feel strongly that she needs to do Grade R and my amazing parents have offered to help out with the school fees.
I will pick up Kayla every morning and take her to a different school than my boys. She lives way too far to go to the same school as them. Her mom will pick her up in the afternoons. Boy am I ever going to be putting KM’s on my car now! Tommie does not want me to do drop her off at school in the mornings. This is one thing that bothers me too, as I do travel a lot as it is. However, I don’t see any other option at the moment.
