We've had a SAHM watch our daughter for the past 2 years. She spends about 2 hours a day in her home.
At the beginning of May, our sitter told us that she was going to have to go back to work for financial reasons and had been interviewing for jobs to start at the end of May. I started looking for someone new but put my search on hold when she told my husband about a week later that she hadn't gotten any offers yet.

She has said nothing to myself or my husband since then. Yesterday when I picked my daughter up, she gave me her diapers back except for one for the next day. I didn't think much of it until I was driving home and called my husband to ask if she had said anything about starting a job, and he said no.

I texted her "Forgive me if I missed something but is tomorrow your last day?". She replied: "Yes, I said the end of May. So this is the last week of May. LO has speech therapy at 3:30 in town and I'm going to spend the summer with the boys. I thought that's what we discussed. I am getting a job as well."

I was immediately taken back by her message and my husband called me right away (he was included) and commented on how rude it sounded. I guess at this point it doesn't matter, but do we have any right to feel blindsided about this? I guess I'm trying to justify my feelings about being upset by how this happened. Maybe it's partly my fault too?
