DaveA Dory & Nemo start going insane out back- growling, snarling, barking. I look out the window and they are in full "defend the realm" mode over a frog. Funniest thing was it would hop closer to them and they would yelp and jump back. Then go right back to acting mean and tough. As long as they stayed 4 feet away from the vicious invading frog monster.

DaveA Facebook memory today of why I talk to DCPs about how they talk around DCKs. DCG4 in little tykes car pulls up behind another car, leans her head out the window, & yells “Move Dammit!”

DaveA New infant starts tomorrow. So over the weekend I set up pack& play and rotated in a couple baskets of infant toys. DCG3 (a bit a "look at me" diva) comes in, takes one look, and goes "Why are those there?" When I explained I had a new baby girl starting she was not happy. Been moping about the baby coming into "her" space all morning. Sorry kiddo- you won't be the only girl or the youngest anymore.

BumbleBee Daycare hack:
When the kids realize the sidewalk disappeared during nap time, tell them they're all detectives and their job is to find out where the sidewalk went.

Enjoy 20 minutes of children getting along, and a hot cup of coffee, while the detectives do their detecting.

Blackcat31 This started out as something vent worthy but in the end is actually kind of funny....

DCD comes to pick up. DCM does 95% of all drop offs/pick ups but has something going on this week so DCD is doing it all. He's done it before and let's just say he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed but he's a nice enough guy...just doesn't seem to have a clue about parenting...(and this is #2 child). Child just turned 2 yrs old a few weeks ago.

Anyways DCD comes to pick up. DCK is ready to go. I change everyone and give them a little "freshen up" (wiping faces/hands and checking clothing) just prior to when I know they'll be picked up so everyone goes home fresh and clean.

DCD gets child. They are gone for about 10 minutes and he returns. I thought they maybe forgot something...

Nope. DCD comes in carrying DCK and says: "Miss BC, we've got a little situation here."

Me "Oh, what's wrong?"

DCD: "DCK had a blow out in the car and needs new pants"

THEN HE ATTEMPTS TO HAND DCK TO ME OVER THE GATE!

I back away and say "DCK has extra clothing in their cubby basket" and I point towards the basket.

DCD looks a bit dumbfounded.
I just know he's waiting for me to take care of it.

He asks if I have a plastic bag and a few wet wipes....

I hand him a bag and assume he is going to change DCK.

Nope, he just stands there.

After a few minutes...he says "Well I suppose I can just take DCK home."

SO he scoops DCK up and walks back to the car.

Josiegirl 2.5 yo dcg does not want to sleep. As long as she stays in one place, there isn't much more I can do. Have tried everything short of hog tying and duct taping. So she's in there just chattering away, talking about anything and everything, some words I can understand but some gibberish. Very cute gibberish. So my phone rings and she answers it(not really) says hewwo and just keeps talking to someone she's imagining. Maybe it's one of those times you just had to be here but she's so darn precious and sweet. I'm gonna miss this little munchkin.

Uhoh she just came tiptoeing around the corner.

Mom2Two One of my families is about to head off to Disneyland. Dcb5, who has severe speech delays, keeps trying to tell me that he and his dad are going on the Buh-wy-eah ride. It sounded an awful lot like he was saying they were going on the Budweiser ride.

I finally had to ask dcd to clarify. Turns out there's a Buzz Lightyear ride. Phew!

“A meal would be awesome. If you feel comfortable reaching out before you arrive to see if we might need anything else — that'd be even more awesome.”

Included in their list of requests were their favorite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including paleo breakfast egg muffins with thinly sliced cremini mushrooms, chocolate peanut butter energy balls and lamb meatball stew with orzo.

If we could use some food but prefer no distractions, I’ll put a big white cooler in our side yard,” Burns wrote.

Um, wow. "Thinly sliced cremini mushrooms..." etc. If my own children asked this of me, their mother, I would feel like I had failed massively as a parent. But that may be because one of my parenting goals is to teach my kids how to live simply and that "it's not all about you."

Because our church is pretty close knit, a few meals and some help is often the norm after a baby. But a person who got too picky for a non-medical reason would be considered a bit of a pain in the neck.

One of my neighbors would likely receive a loaf of bread and some soup. Which would probably be what my own family was eating for dinner.

DaveA DW was at work yesterday and realized the person she was talking to looked real familiar. It was a DCM from my center days. DCM had a picture on her ipad of me and my 2 year old class including her daughter. The reason it was on her ipad- she was putting together a digital picture montage for her daughter's HS graduation.


I'm old and been doing this way too long.

Cat Herder Sitting here at my desk, the sun shining in through the windows, cool breeze across my face, reading my book with toddler tunes playing.

I suddenly realize it is really quiet. No banging blocks, no snapping magnet sets. I look around and panic a bit because I see no children.

I have already taken everyone to the door, signed them out and for no reason at all sat back down at my desk. I have been "off work" for almost 15 minutes and am home alone.

Is this how it starts? The slow slide into madness?

This reminded me of the time I was working as a customer service rep and had to call a customer to ask a question about her order. Her name was Judy Lovelace. It was very immature of me but as I dialed her phone number, I was kind of chuckling at her last name and thinking how embarrassing it must be to share a name with the actress in an infamous porn movie. Someone on the other end of the phone answered the call and I asked to speak with Judy Lovelace. When Judy came to the phone and said hello, without thinking I said, "Hi. Linda?" Thank goodness she had a sense of humor!

That memory led to another; same job. I answered a call from a customer asking to speak with "Ane-yone". I explained there was no one there by that name and asked if I could help her with something. She got angry with me and insisted she was told to call our number and ask to speak with Ane-yone. I again explained there was no one by that name there but I had access to her file and could help her. She put the phone down for a minute, saying she was going to check the message her co-worker had given her. In the background, I could hear hysterical laughter. She came back to the phone apologizing. The message she got said to call our department's 800 number and that "anyone" would be able to help her.

Mine should maybe be a vent, but I'm laughing too hard at the super child expert speech therapist who showed up for initial visit for a 2 year old during naptime. Yeah maybe next time you'll actually contact the child's provider like you told mom you would first.

missmisty DCG - 2.5, DCB 3.5

DCG crying: missmisty!!!!
me: what happened?
DCG: (pointing at dcb while crying hysterically)
me: DCB, do you know why she's crying?
DCB: well.
(long pause)
...I just wanted her away from me.
me: I understand, now can you tell me what made her cry?
DCB: well
(another long pause)
...I maybe pushed her because I wanted her away so I made her away.
me: We don't push our friends. Let's go to time-out.
DCB: its ok though because she's not my friend. I actually don't like her.

**at this point I'm hiding a grin because logically hes telling me that he shouldn't be in trouble because didn't push "a friend".

me: I see. Well it's still not kind to push ANYONE. We use gentle hands not hurting hands. Please sit on the time-out bench.
DCB: fine.
DCG - who has been screaming this whole time suddenly smiles this huge "I won" smile and says "OH TANK YOU MISS MISTY!!!"

I walked away giggling. both at his logic and honesty, because he really DOESNT like this little girl, but also at the fact that she THANKED ME for putting him in time-out

I have 2 little girls here who are usually well behaved but not so much today! As I was making lunch, it got too quiet so I decided to take a peek at what they were doing. As I reached the playroom door, I heard a thump. They had turned the Little Tykes Store on its back so the shelves were looking up toward the ceiling. One was trying to climb into it and sit down with her legs and feet inside the shelving. As I was telling her to get out of there so I could turn the store right side up, the other little girl's disappointment was clear when she whined "Aww! We were just going to fly to Planet Awesome!"

This morning she comes in behind another parent ready to drop off for the day and says as loud as she can - "Look Mummy, V's Mummy's dress matches Aussiedaycare's rubbish bin"

Could not have laughed any louder

Jupadia One of my dkb turns 2 today so I put up a banner for him and planned to serve mimi birthday cupcakes for PM snack today as a treat.

First the poor kid ends up being the only one here. I have one that dose not come mondays, two that are sick (one mine and with his nana), one at school, and one unfilled spot. So it is was it is today with the amount of kids, my oldest before going to school did take some of is turtle figures downstairs for the kid to play with.
But we had afternoon snack, I come out with the cupcakes and tears start pouring down his face. I had to bring it back to the other room and he refused to eat it. Never before have I had a child responded this way, I had to laugh. His mom said he got shy when they did cake with family this weekend.

My son is 3.5 and we catch the city bus downtown to all the activities there, and his favourite part of the day is being on the bus. He LOVES the driver, and going past the train yard, and without fail, on the way home, he falls asleep on my lap.

BumbleBee A parent came in and she was talking with her kid about the baby crane they saw on the way here, flying around calling for his mommy.

My dumb@ss took entirely too long to realize they were talking about the BIRD, not the piece of construction equipment. I legit asked if it was being flown in by a helicopter.

In my defense:

#1 DCK "No, it's so we don't forget our names"

I liked the little ones from the garden as a kid, but these are a good 8 inches around. They kind of burn.

Today when he came in the same DCG looked at him and said "Mom crazy" Don't know if I should or

Jupadia So today we are out and about as a family. We pass a grave yard my oldest 5 points out the cool stones. My husband very bluntly says that they are graves for dead people. My kids eyes went big, so I made sure to add that they were mostly for when you get really old, but then you go to heaven. Now we are not religious but do believe in God and heaven . The only real mention of heven we have done is saying that's were our dog went, and then the fish as well (dog taking care of fish he had freaked out one night months after we flushed the fish about the fish so we told him this). But he thinks about the heven thing for a minute and then ask "what about my bedroom where will I sleep?" So we just told him he will have a bedroom there. Now he seems fine with the whole dying thing hopefully.

I dont have her worry about taking the kids outside if I'm only gone a short time, and by the time I got back it was dark so the daycare kids never made it out in the afternoon. (Did go out in am).

But I took out my 2 year old soon to be 3 to our front yard after daycare so I could shovel the drive way before my husband got home. He kept trying to "clean" everything because he was convinced it was dirty. Even his mittens were "messy". We have a blowup christmas minion that we put out, he got all cleaned up.
Daddy also took him out when he hot home threw a snowball and he got hit by mistake but he on daddy when he got back in.

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.

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.

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!!”

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.

Also, I love that Danielle is a donkey. I hope the irony isn't lost on them when you schedule the conference.

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.

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...

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!

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.

If you can't do the time don't do the crime, buddy.

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.
