11-07-2018 08:13 AM
Flowerchild A child went in cozy center and buried themselves in pillows to waist. Said to me you. Can't see my socks or shoes. Because she couldn't move she casually said to another waddler hey can you get me a book.

happymom A friend of mine posts a picture of her 4 year old getting cavities filled and says "we can't really figure out the cause of it, may just be genetics"

20 hours later...posts a video of her 8 month old drinking a bottle of chocolate milk...and says she has an identical video of her older son doing the same.

Pestle Unusually verbal two-year-old, while I was texting with a parent: "Your phone. It goes vrrp vrrp. That's a problem."

sharlan Dcg and dcb came running out of the playroom, screaming "dinosaurs, come momma". They were both in a panic. I thought maybe they heard a truck going down the back street.

No, it was my granddaughter moving around in her bedroom. I told them it was Hannah, but they're positive it's a dinosaur.
11-05-2018 11:04 AM
Josiegirl And I wonder why 2 yo dcg hasn't fallen asleep yet.
I thought she had pooped so I went to get a diaper and change her. I happened to look out our front window and there were 15 turkeys at our feeders. So of course, I got all excited and wanted to share it with her.

DaveA Today was "wacky clothes day" at school DCB comes in clothes inside out, shorts over pants, jeans used as shirt sleeves, and socks over his shoes. DCM says as she's leaving "Please come home with all your clothes!" Now there's words to live by. DCM & I decided it is the perfect example of "things we never thought we'd hear ourselves say"

My almost 3 year old was the only one a little confused/worried that she wasn’t going to get to play. But it’s okay we then walked to the “dinosaur park” aka the nearby elementary school to play. I just wish I had known bc I purposely walked them the long way (we were also checking out Halloween decorations) about a block from the school in question to get to this park and then had to backtrack!

I am hoping new equipment is the case. I don’t really like going to this park bc of the set up. It has a nice stair like platform to climb up to one slide and then you have to cross moneybars to get to the main part with like 6 bigger more fun slides or climb up this weird step thing that is too advanced/hard to climb for 4/6 of my kids and one of the ones that can climb it is afraid of it. So it’s either they all share the one slide, which they don’t complain about but kind of defeats the purpose of walking them to a park when we have essentially the same basic slide at home or I spend the hour standing at the monkey bars platform lifting them all to access the fun slides.

It may be worth having cameras in my house just to catch moments like this!

Rockgirl 2 yr old dcg has REALLY gross poopy diapers, usually twice a day. Yesterday when I was changing her, I said (under my breath....I didn’t even think she heard), “Wow—what are you eating at home?”

She immediately yelled, “APPLES!!”
09-25-2018 02:13 PM
Hunni Bee One of dcms must own stock in Matilda Jane. All the ruffles, patchwork, pastel clothing you can handle. Dcg has even got PJs and a tote bag in that pattern.

Gpa picked up. DCM had a doctors appointment.

Got a text during naptime, from a longtime client, asking if I am still closed next week. Same week, every year.

Will be interesting to see how far down the rabbit hole this goes this week.

Cat Herder I got Danielle because my oldest DCB is having a bit of a hoarding issue yelling at others when they pick up something he puts down. My neighbors have a donkey that "shouts" at them when they arrive, he does not like it. See where I am going here...

I ended up texting her because DH texted that he was grilling salmon for dinner. Salmon tastes better than vindictive satisfaction, or at least that is what I am supposed to believe.

Also have any of you heard the Wonkey Donkey? Such a happy accident. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...9&&FORM=VRDGAR

DCB and I have listened to her three times today, laughing to tears.

Hahahaha unbelievable!! I really think after such an email I'd make it as uncomfortable and embarrassing for them as possible and let them meet your puppet. And make a huge production out of it.

Pestle The Standoff

Me: "Good job takin' off your soggy boggy pull-up!"
DCK: "Good job me! Ah not soggy!"
Me: "Now it's time to put on a dry one!"
DCK: "Nuh Ah dun wan to!"

10 minutes later . . .

Me: "Hey, buddy, you can't come out into the playroom without a pull-up on."
DCK: "Ah come out playyyyy."
Me: "Sorry, dude; you're too naked to come out here with everybody else."
DCK: "Ah not naked!"
Me: "I don't wan't to see your bottom."
DCK: "DON'T LOOK AT MY BOTTOM!!!"
Me: "Yo, dude, I don't want to! Please put a pull-up over your bottom!"

Three minutes later:

DCK, horrified: "What DAT? Ah dun lahk it! Pestle what DAT? Ah dun lahk it!"
Me: "Stop playing with the paper tow-- oh, ick! Mr. Man, that's a camel cricket."
DCK: "AH DUN LAHK IT."

Yeah, Ah dun lahk it either.
09-12-2018 02:16 PM
Blackcat31 One of my (favorite) DCK's went to Kindy this year.

Still comes after school off bus for an hour every day though.

Today was their first day being dropped off via the bus.
Child comes in and announces PROUDLY to everyone asking about the first day/what they learned etc...

DCK's reply: "Hey guys guess what?!?! I got to ride the bus with no car seat and no seatbelt!!"

Tried squeezing additional info in regards to their day and all the fun things they may have done etc... but the thrill was apparently riding that bus without a car seat or seatbelt. DCK even says "....and I get to do it again tomorrow!!"

Guess it's the little things in life...
09-12-2018 12:02 PM
Miss A My own almost 2 year old doesn't nap long, so I let him watch Daniel Tiger after he wakes so the others get a full nap. Today's episode is Snowy Day/Tutu All The Time, and when Henrietta *****cat drops Katerina Kitty Cat off at school in a tutu and doesn't make her put it in her cubby, and even says "I'm glad that you like your tutu!" I laugh so hard. Even in cartoons parents think that the rules can't possibly apply to them or their children!
09-10-2018 06:15 PM
flossie I'm probably naughty for doing so... But... I was chuckling as I watched out the kitchen window as a teacher was trying to get the last preschooler inside to get cleaned up for lunch. Their swing and slide set is in front of my only kitchen window. It was pretty funny watching her start to climb up and him racing down - there was no way she was going to make it up there to get him, ha ha... Next time I looked I saw her picking him up under his arms and his feet kicking.

One of the older preschoolers wasn't watching where she was going and she walked right into my hindside. I turned around and exclaimed, "Sweetie (didn't call her that, called her by name), you just walked into my butt." She smiled and looked a little embarrassed, then she wrapped her arms around my legs in a hug and told me she loved me.

Oddly, he is the second Thad (Thaddeus) I have had in care. This one has a sibling named Theodore.

The other was an only child and is probably about 16 now.

My current Thad will be 2 in Jan. It is definitely a "different" name. One I have trouble in conjunction with the sibling's name. It sounds like I have a speech problem.


The kids call him "Fad" or "him".

Josiegirl Just went to check on my almost 2 yo dcg. She has a doll with a paci and she still uses a paci. She and her doll are laying nose to nose, both with pacis stuck in their mouths. Man, she is such a cutie pie. I'm already thinking how traumatic it'll be to watch her go off to preschool.

Love it!!

He is super ticked, now. He is having a picnic lunch, with the puzzles. Naptime is also optional at 5 years old.

It really isn't that difficult. They are the little ones for toddlers plus I painted the backs to color code them.

I texted his mom and asked how long she wanted me to make him work on it. She texted back "Feel free to send them home with him if they are not done by pickup." I guess we are all good, here.

I plan to stop at 1 hour, though. I have a treat planned for the group at 3:30 and this one likes his nap. Our class cucumbers and squash are ready for picking and I made cookies with our pumpkins.

I gave birth to my son on my husband's 34th birthday, 16 minutes after midnight. When I was pregnant my DH was adamant about naming a boy after DH's grandpa, who DH is also named after. So, my DH got a son and got to name him on his birthday.

My middle little sister, and my first cousin were also born on the same day, so now we have 4 birthdays on the same day in our family.

I still have the reel to reel player my parents had when I was a child. It's so cool! My mom recorded my brother and I singing Old McDonald Had a Farm when we were about 2 and 3 yrs old.

I have our old slide projector too... never know when the kids come visit and I might want to have a 3 hour presentation of vacation slides to watch or even better, a 575 slide show from Vietnam.

I also saved my parents' collection of 45's (record albums and vinyl ARE making a comeback ) and my dad's extensive 8 track tapes of all the old country singers. Never know when I get an inkling for Tom Jones or maybe a little Conway Twitty.

truth be told Dcb5 needed that lesson today.

Unregistered When I was relicensed, the official asked the two oldest kids their names as she looked at her list. They both gave fake names 😮 that sounded real. As she looked up and down her list and gave me the side eye, I thought quick and had the kids do their morning handshakes with her, during which they say their full name.

Crisis averted 😅

07-11-2018 08:55 AM
BumbleBee Ruined a 5 yr old's life today, so I can check that off my bucket list . How could I be so cruel? What on earth did I do?

I put him in timeout for trying to spit in another child's face.

For 5 minutes I heard a continuous stream of how I ruined his life and he's never going to be happy ever again and how unfair I am and how he's going to cry all his tears out and die because he won't have any left when he needs them.

Drama king. That's the only phrase to describe him. Drama king.

Ironically if a child so much as bumps into him accidently it's instant diva mode because how DARE somebody 'push him down' and injure him and now he 'just can't possibly play anymore because he's SOOOOOO hurt'-and not just his body, but his 'insides are shattered into a million pieces!'

8 weeks until Kindergarten starts!!!!!

It's getting harder and harder to not laugh or roll my eyes in the presence of the kids when he does this.

fifi The last few weeks the children have wanted Pete the Cat stories over and over again. They all join in when Pete sings "I love my white shoes" and reply to, "Did Pete cry?" with "Goodness no!"

While playing with water outside yesterday, one little boy got his shoes wet. This sweet little guy most likely has FASD, and in the past has freaked out about his shoes getting wet. But yesterday he was walking around the playground singing, "I wuv my wet shoes, I wuv my wet shoes." It was priceless.

Cat Herder DCM brought a new can of parents choice "sensitivity" formula as requested. I just got it out of the cubby to open it and noticed a huge letter F written in sharpie on the front of the can. Kids name starts with the letter G.

Then I got it.

DCD had not meant for this can to come here. He thought DCM would see it and get a laugh at home.

Now, we all have.

Miss A I have a cousin sending their son part time this summer. He is the oldest of my group, my Littles just idolize him, and his name is Thomas.

DCB-2.5 has delayed speech, and can not say Thomas. It took me 2 days to realize that DCB-2.5 didn't want to play "Choo choos" all day, but was instead trying to get Thomas's attention.
06-08-2018 01:00 PM
Jupadia The kids where playing dcb 4, dcb 6, and my boy 5.
Start saying you "you can't screw me" "no I screw you". Me look over about to say something when one of them shouts out "well I'm going to drill then" they where playing with legos and talking about pretending to build with tools.

Josiegirl Had a chuckle the other day when the twins were talking about having lobsters for dinner at home. I asked if dad had to cook them and if they tasted good. I figured dcd cooked them but they weren't too keen on eating them. Come to find out, dcd told me it was probably because he made the mistake of letting them crawl around on the floor first.

Pestle We bought a Whirlpool washing machine when the ancient machine that came with the house died shortly after we moved in. The dryer sort of worked for a few more years, then finally died, and we bought a Samsung dryer. Both were Consumer Reports recommended at the lower end of the price range, so we don't care that they don't match. Or at least, I didn't care. The daycare kids are examining the new dryer while both machines are in operation, and a three-year-old just pointed out that they are currently spinning in opposite directions. I'm not sure I can handle that. I may need to cover the windows with little curtains or something. Portholes? What do you call those viewscreens?

BrynleeJean simply the smile on my sons face as he sits in the bucket meant to hold the Duplos, instead of actually playing with the blocks. sigh.. why do i buy toys. He's in an imaginary boat thats apparently much more fun and i just sit here and smile. He's so happy.

Later this afternoon should prove interesting.

Cat Herder DCG3: "Whatcha making Mrs. Cat Herder?"

Me: "Turkey Spaghetti."

DCG3: "(Dramatic gasp) For us??? " Covers mouth with both hands as if surprised.

Me: "Yes, of course..."

DCG3: "Well, arent you a sweetie!!! We looooove turkey 'sgetti. (Twirls with arms in air) Yay! Yay!"

Me: "I am so glad to hear that, Thank you. It will be ready very soon."

DCG3: "Mrs. Cat Herder, what's for lunch though?"

TheMisplacedMidwestMom It was dcb's first day back after being sent home with a stomach bug that involved some explosive diapers.
Dcm: Yea! I see you haven't had to change clothes today.
Me: Well, no I haven't.
Dcm:
Me: Ohhhh, you probably talking to the baby.

Blackcat31 Two 2 ,5 yr old DCB's standing by the window.....watching a bunny outside...

daycarediva Dcb has been out all week with his teacher Mom, she is doing a day of planning before returning to work.

He comes in and the FIRST thing out of his mouth is

"It's still fu**ing Easter in here. Oh **** I sorry! Oh I said **** I SORRY!"

omg. DIED LAUGHING. Dcm was mortified.

He NEVER has bad language here, but I dooooo think it's allowed at home.

I had a dcg4 in the past to call another child a "butthead"....I told her that wasn't a very nice thing to say and she replied "but she IS a butthead". and I couldn't hold my laughter either!

Jupadia My son last night refused to eat dinner till his brother was done just so he could sit in daddy's chair cause you can see the TV screen. Sat at atbke while his brother ate them moved chairs and ate his whole dinner. Funny part TV was not on.

BumbleBee Oppositional defiant dcb, age 4, was the first one 'finished' with breakfast. In reality he just wanted to snatch and/or hide the favored toys so nobody else could use them. I made everybody stay at the table until everybody was done.

Dcb's response? "FINE! I'll just sit here and eat my cereal! But NOT because I'm hungry!"

ok then you do that dcb.

Ac114 Someone contacted me today asking for a spot for summer care. Gave them my price and they replied “that’s really out of our budget, we have budgeted 183 a month for child care. We could probably up it to 250 a month but that would be pushing it. Let me know if anything changes and you can help out”

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 ok! That won’t grt you full time care ANYWHERE. That barely pays for two weeks of in home and one week of center care in my area. GOOD LUCK!

DaveA New line in my job description- relationship counselor for DCB11 & DCG10 (who have both came here for 4-5 years). DCG is mad at DCB because he didn't tell her he had an afternoon Dr appointment so wouldn't be on the bus to sit by her.

Josiegirl I'm trying to transition my 18 mo to a cot; today being the first day. She's extremely strong-willed but a real sweetheart. She's the dcg I'd adopt in a heartbeat if it was an option. Anyways, I set her cot out, nice cozy blanket, her stuffed Peter Rabbit she's gotten attached to here. Then I lay down beside her. Just figure it'd be a whole lot easier than getting up and down out of a chair 50+ times. I'm not sure if this child will grow up to be a dentist, ophthalmologist, hair stylist, or just a really great nose-picker because I swear she wouldn't stop touching me for 45 minutes. Took everything not to bust out laughing at her. Lol But 45 minutes later, she's a little sleeping angel.

1. She loses at least one job a year for taking too many sick days.
2. My brother is the full-time parent and works full time from his home office. She has never participated in parenting tasks that aren't "cute".
3. She takes at least one nap every day.
4. She was arrested last month for breaking and entering to get narcotics.

Yep, we have a winner!!!!
She won't get past the licensing process.

Me: Just ignore him.

Josiegirl 4 yo dcg had a new tear in her winter jacket so I asked her how she got it.
DCG "I went to the zoo and there was this jaguar who took a bite out of it".
Me Well, you're lucky he didn't bite your nose(looking very dramatic and aghast)
dcg Well, he was a friendly jaguar so he only bit my coat.
Me What color was he?
Dcg Pink with black dots.
She was as serious in her replies as she could be.

Before they left I changed my contract to cash and personal check only , she wrote in money orders on the contract . I told her no more money orders cash or check only and she lost it . She started yelling at me while outside waiting for the bus .

LysesKids That when mom walked in 15 minutes earlier, she ran to the shoe box, opened it to get her shoes & dived in, right in front of mom mind you... she is only 17 months. Head first & couldn't get back up right without help; mom & I were laughing hysterically because this is a first. As Mom said, it's a new story to tell Dad when they get home. Mom said I can imagine what you go thru with all 4 being so young; YEP, never ending antics (my other 3 are younger lol)

Mom2Two Yesterday the dc kids were playing a game of zombies, and I had to laugh as I listened to them, because all the zombies were apparently from Canada. Apparently they believe that Canada is where all the zombies live and that Canada is full of zombies.

But on the bright side, it put me in the mood to watch World War Z with DH again last night. The movie is full of zombies and the family do end up in Canada--where they are safe from zombies.
