I've always clamoured that I would never put my child into nursery. "What's the point in having kids if you're just going to pay other people to raise them," I have been known to say.

Only, I met Toddler's mum in the village today and went into Toddler's nursery with them. And Daughter just came to life as we walked through the door. They were singing and playing and she was laughing and straining to get out of her sling to get a better look.

I asked for some information about it all and whilst it does look like a great place for her to go - they grow food, cook it with the older kids, have a swimming pool, Spanish lessons and all kinds of musical fun - I still don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to take her there.

In my line of work, I don't earn a lot of money, so I would be working at a loss if I were to send her there full time. Part time might be viable though...

I just don't know. It would be good for her to socialise and for me to get away for a little while. Even if it's just to clean the house.

Heart vs head vs wallet. It's a 3 way battle - who will be victorious?
