I had a Great New Year!! Thanks :D Hope you did, too. lovethis

I even registered for the QRIS here..... You'd be proud. :p

Making the transition from a "Child Care Provider" to a "Provider of Early Child Care and Education" has been a struggle... but it is coming along pretty well, now. happyface

I just have to survive the re-training week from the DCK's (and parents) return from backup providers.....:eek:

It seems undercutting and offering exceptions to every rule imaginable is becoming an advertising strategy of newer providers here. ;) Poptarts as a substitute for lunch if a 2 year old prefers it...really? :lol:

I hear ya about the re-training!! ;)

As of the new year, I am no longer serving breakfast. So this morning a family I have had for several years now (lives about 3 blocks away) pulls in the driveway. I can see them on the surveillance camera. They sit there without getting out for almost 20 minutes. I am like :confused: maybe finishing up breakfast :confused:. So dad and dcg comes in and I say, adjusting to the new breakfast rule and finishing in the car? Dad says "no, she was watching a movie and I had to let her finish it!" :eek:

:lol::lol::lol:

BC, I have two that do the movies in the car thing... :rolleyes: Still wondering how many screaming tantrum fits parents have to endure to realize that just talking to them (instead of toys, food, movies etc that they have to take away) makes for a MUCH better morning routine.

The seeds they sow now WILL continue into the teen years. I LOVE my travel time talks with my teens. lovethis

Ariana, I had the reverse....:p Mine are back in diapers WITH their very first diaper rashes.... :ouch:

Ahhh...vacation.....:confused:

They're behavior has actually been pretty great, I've had one time-out in two days.

But I've also had:

- tons of fevers, stomach aches/diarrhea/gas, hunger (??) and over-tired-ness

- cases of no coat, no hat, no socks, no undergarments in 18 degree weather

- showing up in dirty outfits from the day before

- parents storming in during naptime ripping their child off the cot and shouting that a "fungus" the child had on his body (under his clothes) somehow came from us


Which confirms the fact that some of the poor kiddos are parenting themselves.
