harperluu In my state light bulbs have to be above 5ft. Or else. Your state is clearly doing it wrong.

ETA autocorrect mistakenly changed "lightbulbs" to "light bulbs".

Here are some other links I found that are relevant to the child care profession which makes light bulbs relevant to this daycare forum.

*Sorry candle users. I see no mention of any acceptable forms of open flame that is suitable for use in a child care setting.

It's "speeled" 'fluorescent'. Duh.
12-12-2013 05:25 AM
Cradle2crayons I would ask some more questions but I have to go thaw out the truck before I drive my kids to school. Gosh I hope nobody left the interior light bulbs on last night.

See? I can make a stupid post relevant simply by finding a way to put "light bulb " in the post

"1 unregistered troll that posts something controversial and probably unrelated and then disappears from the rest of the conversation"

Do you have the wiki dictionary link to define "interjection" because I'm still confused about the previous candle post.

Naptime yet? When Spud912 returned from the future, did she bring the magic lightbulb changing device? Or will they be able to be changed through the power of the mind? That would be AWESOME!

Abigail OMG, at first I noticed this had TWENTY-SIX responses since last night and thought how sad. Now that I read it and all the funny responses it's okay.

PS, I like the one about childcare vs. child care & daycare vs. day care relating to how to spell light bulb vs. lightbulb. I do child care and I have a daycare which we use lightbulbs in all our rooms.

We don't just watch them.....some of us educate them, some of us teach them, some of us play with them, some of us mind them, some of us supervise them, there are even a few who sit on them but we rarely just watch them.
.....unless of course I am changing a lightbulb and have to watch to make sure they are not getting into anything.......

Party pooper.....


Its nap time and I, in fact, did change a light bulb AND threw an awesome birthday party for a one year old and 5 of his closest friends. I even had time to upload and email all 43 photos to B-day boys parents.

We have mad skills like that....

No, silly, that was me having a good idea. A cartoon lightbulb pops up whenever that happens. You might not know that because it's only happened once.

Blackcat31 Webster's on-line dictionary says it is "lightbulb"....one word

lightbulb

noun
electric lamp consisting of a transparent or translucent glass housing containing a wire filament (usually tungsten) that emits light when heated by electricity [syn: light bulb]
