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 😅

Annalee Health/env came for their inspection this morning...when she come in dcb2 met her at the gate. I told him to show ms xxxx where the kitchen was and he took her to the play kitchen.... she got a good laugh out of that

BumbleBee Dcb4 doesn't have his nemesis to bicker with this morning so he's trying to manipulate dcg3. She's not having it.

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.

ellen211 My kids prank their dad. They tried to scare him by putting a mask on. Lol!
07-07-2018 11:29 AM
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.

Unregistered I have an almost 3 year old dcb who has responded to my requests today with a polite, "Yes, dear." Lol

He's gonna make a great husband one day.
06-14-2018 02:29 PM
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 12:00 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.
06-06-2018 03:22 AM
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.

Kid got the message but missed the nuance when told to call 911 if she was in trouble.

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?
05-29-2018 01:30 PM
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.
05-25-2018 04:15 AM
Jamie I had a 2.5 yo drop-in tell me that at his regular daycare, they all walk around "butt naked" all the time. Even the daycare owner

I know his regular daycare. She howled with laughter when I told her this
05-24-2018 10:07 AM
Josiegirl Not making me laugh but putting a smile on my face. My toddler is in the crib, laid down an hour ago, should by all rights be exhausted but is humming Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
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?"

05-09-2018 04:51 PM
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...

DCB#1 says "Look! The Easter bunny!" and points

DCB #2 says "That not the Easter bunny, that's the pizza bunny!"

?? ??

Um, okay... Friday is usually pizza day here but I didn't know we had a Pizza Bunny! Yay! I'll take the pizza bunny over the Easter Bunny any day!

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.

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.
04-03-2018 03:27 PM
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 thats 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 wont 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!

Stressed&Obsessed One of my DCB's came in today and I was holding him and talking to him but also looking at another child. He grabs my face and says look into my eyes, I am talking to you! He is 2 years old going on 30!
03-20-2018 05:25 AM
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.
03-19-2018 10:18 AM
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.

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.

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.

OOOOOHHHHHHHH she did not leave happy. This is a mom I really enjoy conversing with. She is a "know it all" and "i got it all figured out"....she hates contract/policy but she does abide, just gives me "those looks" all the time.

happymom My mom is visiting (yay!) and she is staying with us and helping me with my kids while my husband is on a business trip.

This morning my 2 year old woke up at 4:30am. I went in to his room to help him back to sleep and my mom woke up and started walking in. He says "GRAMMY!!!" and she was elated that he wanted to see her and also didn't realize how early it was and honestly thought it was morning.

My 2 year old proceeds to point to the kitchen and say "coffee!"....so my mom makes coffee and doesn't realize it was 4:30 until she was half way through a cup. Poor mom....I went back to bed and the two of them stayed up, lol.

fifi This afternoon, while playing outside, dcb4 shows me a container he has filled with wood chips, and then dumps them out. He fills it again, telling me the wood chips are money. Then he tells me that you go to the doctor to get money, so I said to him, "Oh, well I'll have to go to the doctor more often then!"

Then he says, "I'm going to go to the doctor and make lots and lots of money. I'm going to be the mummy who works at the doctor and make money for lots and lots of years."

Somehow this doesn't seem as funny now that I am typing it, but at the time I could hardly stop laughing.

Friday on our walk he pipes up "do you have your google with you?" No dcb, I don't. "Oh, ok. Then I'll just wait until we get home to ask you a google question."

I miss 6 months ago when it was easy stuff like how does magma form, what is Jupiter made of, how do diamonds form, why doesn't Saturn fall out of it's rings, when everybody dies, what will be left on the earth? Now it's stuff like, what lives at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, why are Uranus' rings vertical while Saturn's are horizontal?

I feel like I should've majored in science!
Holy Moley!! Maybe if you wait til the kid is 5, you can ask him the questions instead! His teachers are going to be searching out some unique extra activities for that one.
I remember taking my ds out trick or treating back when he was around that age. One house he started telling the person handing out the candy, all about robotics. Thirty years ago...I left thinking 'whose kid is this?'

I had a dcm tell a 4yo that the leaves are falling because "The trees are tired of holding the leaves up."

I mean, if you don't KNOW- just google it and explain it, because the TRUE explanation is not going over well because "My mama said.."

fifi Yesterday, while we were getting ready to go outside after afternoon snack, 3 y/o dcbN says, "What if my dad gets here?" I said to him, "Well, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it."

3 y/o dcbP says, "Ms. F, when can we go to that bridge? I want to go to that bridge now."

Miss A My DS-1 demanding I sit on the couch with him and read the cement truck book by having a full on throw himself on the floor backwards and push himself arou d with his feet tantrum. I give in, we get settled in, I open the book to the first page and start "Mikey the Mixer.." and he plugs both ears. Really, was that worth a tantrum!?!

DaveA DCB 10 is describing the wedding he went to last weekend. His description of the bouquet/ garter toss- The girl threw her flowers and all the women tried to catch them. The guy took a rubber band off her leg. And when he tried to flick the guys with it they ran away.

I don't think I needed to know that 😂😂😂😂
I wondered if I should tell his mum but I don't think I could find the words !
Ninja in the blankets LOL I doubt I'd mention the newfound info to dcps, I'm sure dcb already embarrassed them enough. Too Funny And poor child, he is way too young to play ninja.

Josiegirl I had to laugh or else I would've cried. My FP sponsor came right as I was trying to get lunch put on plates. I let her in and continue on my business. So I put my 13 mo into her high chair and she starts screaming. I give her the plate of food thinking it'll calm her down but she just gets worse. She's scared to death of this person in our kitchen. So I get the others washed up and served lunch and go to take the tray off the high chair to get 13 mo out, and it falls onto the floor, food everywhere. I leave it lol and get her a few pieces of food and sit her in my lap, letting her eat there. She calms down and is fine. 10 minutes into lunch, food is all over the floor(I remind FP lady my dogs will be happy and she laughs), food is all over my pants(including squished peaches and green beans) and all over dcg. And then 4 mo dcb, who has been so sweet and patient through all of this, sitting with us in his bouncer seat, thinks it's his turn to wail. Ten more minutes of helping dcg eat in my lap, bouncing dcb with my foot, and trying to answer questions from FP lady, plus trying to serve 3 yo dcgs who now want seconds.
Ahhhh fun times.....

I got the correct men's T. I did receive 2 women's T's but only one of them were the correct T, the other said something about standing up to bullying.

I contacted Amazon and was told they can't help me (yet) because my order hasn't shipped yet.

The help-guy said to call back after they send out the order.

I told them I am physically holding it in my hand. The UPS guy just brought it to me... They said, nope.... your order hasn't shipped yet. ..... Um, okay...

This morning I get an e-mail telling me my order shipped out in full......
Free tshirts for you! I LOVE amazon. Ordered my nieces birthday present yesterday, a cozy coupe car, supposed to be here by tomorrow. I love that it told me that it was going to ship in the cozy coupe box and gave me the free option for it to ship in an amazon box. My niece attends my daycare and the last thing I need is for her to see it or worse yet for the kids to see it and start asking questions on who its for. They understand that she is more than a dck and that she sees me outside of daycare on nights and weekends but I dont think theyll understand why they get a puzzle and she gets a cozy coupe.

I sent a text to his mom and of course, she will more than likely say something along the lines of "Oh, I don't know where he heard that from." ~

It's okay mom..... most adults DO go to the liquor store ow and then....Even (especially) those that work for child protective services as she does.

I'm on your side. Talk to DW- she's the one who made that decision. There are some discussions I know better than to touch.

Amazing the venom that can come out of an indignant 11 year old.
