Yep, babes go into bassinets or cribs... I don't have time to be rocking a child 2 hrs when the 3 others need my attention

ZB4 Yes dear parent I know this comes as a surprise but your child is well behaved after you leave. No they don't cry all day nor are they sad, pouting or demanding like they are when you're here. Do you really think I wouldn't tell you if they had a bad day...everyday? Believe me I would, and you'd be picking them up because I wouldn't deal with it. And if it continued.... I'd terminate. Oh yes I would. I love the little ones...but you dear parent are the most frustrating part of my day. Sorry for the rant

Yup. the first two days dad picks up early before 3pm both days. He has a dentist appointment and can't pick up. The kid was fine until he woke up from nap. I thought it was odd he literally did not want to get up. He finally does and pukes everywhere. I assumed mom would leave work a few minutes early since she was picking up. Nope got on the road 10 minutes after she normally gets off and strolls to my door at 515. 15 minutes late is 15 minutes late. I also had food training at 6pm. I had to feed my kids and eat dinner myself as I wouldn't be getting back in until after 8pm.Dad better be the one picking up or she better figure out how to make it here especially since at the interview his hours are 630 to 4pm. Not when I close.
I don't see this working out.

daycarediva Parent kept kid home Friday with a cold, brought her today and it's obviously NOT better. She is livid that I even hinted at sending her home. I stood my ground. Wiping brown snot off of her face and hands every 5 minutes or less is NASTY. Plus she fell asleep at circle time, isn't eating, everything making her cry, etc. She was 'fine' all weekend. I saw social media. You ran her ragged and she looked miserable in every photo (and is the first to cheese in pictures, so it's highly unusual)

daycarediva Congratulations on your breaking off a toxic, one sided relationship!

I am sooo tempted to partner with early head start in my state. Speaking to the woman I emailed regarding more information was NOT helpful. It's a 10,000 carrot she's dangling. The paperwork is nothing more than I am already doing.

Or so they say, right?

This man only leaves the house to go to work, otherwise he’s too busy being a homebody and I am the absolute complete opposite.

mamamanda Just need to vent today... this is probably my last day doing childcare if all goes according to plan with my sister's new provider. I'm really struggling with this decision as I know it's the right one, but I love my niece & nephew so stinking much. I already miss them. So I was hoping to have this crazy awesome day for them to always remember auntie's house by. Not so much...

My 2yo DD is fighting ear infection, we've neither one slept much in 2 days, my head is pounding, & she cries over everything.

Also, I now get to drag 5 kids to the Dr office for a recheck.

My niece cried all day yesterday & has been fussy so far this morning as well. Although she's playing wonderfully at the moment.

My 7yo Ds is mad b/c he's bored
Somehow that's my fault? I told him he'd figure it out eventually and went on about my business so he's pouting by himself.

And all I've done for my nephew today is redirect behavior. Our play room is gated off in 2 places & has doors leading to the bathroom, 2 bedrooms, & a closet all of which are closed. He constantly tries to hide in the closet, play in the bathroom, open the bedrooms, open the kitchen gate to look for snacks at will, & slide on his belly under my gate that leads to the family room. I just follow him around taking hold of his hand & guiding him back to the playroom.

He's not usually like this. I'm very confused. But he keeps telling me not to yell at him (I'm not yelling, that is just his take on being told no . All I wanted was one last special day...I guess it will be memorable after all.

I mean yeah she most likely qualifies for state aided daycare. 5 kids, I have a teacher that makes 60k and qualifies for state aid cause he has 6 kids.
All seriousness she just needs to stay home most likely if she cannot afford daycare. She be paying almost 3k a month.

Facepalm.

Josiegirl Dcg 5 yo, acting very tired and grumpy all morning long, we lay down for quiet time and all she does is talk to herself the whole time. As soon as everybody wakes up, she drags her blankets and pillow into the living room to sleep on the floor. Haha, that's what you think. Ain't gonna happen!!!

Doesn't help now but my policies state that when I call for pick up, the parent has x amount of time to get here until late fees ($1 per minute) begin accruing. How much time you allow is dependent on your area. All my families work within 15 minutes of my daycare facility so I allow 30 minutes before I begin adding late fees.

Josiegirl Argh!!!! 4 1/2 yo bit my 5 yo yesterday.
5 yo had jumped on top of 4 yo and he bit her. They're both extremely physical with each other. When I told 4 yo's mom, she said 'wow, he hasn't bit in a long time'. He's been here 11 months and has never bitten anyone but she said he used to bite at his previous dc.
I came right out and told him and dcm that at 4 1/2, he needs to tell others how he feels and what he needs/wants, rather than bite someone.
Other than that, it wasn't a bad Monday after being off 4 days.

The area around it is pretty sore and red but it does not hurt, yet. I know how to care for it. It should not be too bad at all once it heals.

Dinner is ready, so hopefully the drama is over for the night.
Oh No!! Not a good thing to have happen. I know you know what you're doing. Just know I'm thinking of you. No pain worse than a burn. And tell hubby he needs to hurry up and get better, YOU need to be taken care of too.

I'm sorry this happened. It seems like you fix one thing and something else is immediately "out of order"
First day back from 10 days off. My assistant comes in and tells me how she needs to leave early cause her boyfriend got arrested. I mean come on she got almost extra week off cause she "mixed" up my vacation dates and booked plane tickets that were nonrefundable.
Guys I'm so done. Few more weeks and I'm going to only before and after care.

My fault; balls don't belong in the house(if we take them outside to play with my dogs pop them). But I figured telling a 4.5 and 5 yo to not throw them in the air........
*I said I'm sorry* she says. With her as long as she says sorry, then everything's just fine. I've been trying to tell her saying sorry is just part of anything she does. You can't constantly hit people and just say sorry. You can't do anything/everything you please, thinking sorry will make it all better.

Ugh, just a vent. Gonna be a long summer.
That age is tough.....

I am forever repeating "Don't TELL me; SHOW me" when the kids adapt a method of justifying bad behavior with a simple "Sorry". Sorry doesn't fix it. It's just the wrapping paper on the gift. If they (general they) are truly sorry they will assist fixing the situation and by changing their behavior in the future.

I'm sorry this happened. It seems like you fix one thing and something else is immediately "out of order"

Josiegirl ARGH Mad at myself and at dcg.
I have a bunch of soft balls over a gate that the dcks have to ask to play with because well, they're balls and it's inside the house. So after lunch dcb asked if he could have a ball to play with, I said sure, as long as you don't throw it in the air. I said it like 3 times. I was cleaning up the 2 little ones and almost done and dcb comes running into the kitchen, telling me dcg threw the ball, hit the ceiling fan, it fell. Well, this kid is a constant tattler so I went in, assuming he'd over-dramatized what happened. My fan was wobbling and a blade was on the floor. My fault; balls don't belong in the house(if we take them outside to play with my dogs pop them). But I figured telling a 4.5 and 5 yo to not throw them in the air........

Ac114 Why donít parents teach their kids that they sit at the table while the eat instead of literally doing anything but sitting on their bottoms? Every child in my care except mine tries to get up at some point to dance, walk in the living room, basically anything but sit at the table. Itís driving me crazy!

This is why I do not like certain parents
That poor kid. I have a boy his parents left with grandma so they could vacation alone. Sent him to daycare all week. Then they got back and sent him to daycare instead of spending any time with him.

Josiegirl Grrrr 21 mo dcg climbed out of crib this a.m. so I tried putting her on a cot for nap time this afternoon. Nap will be over in 45 minutes and I finally put her back in the crib, watching her every second. Knew this day would come sooner than later. I've tried a cot with her before, gave it a few weeks and she just would not settle down. After dealing with her sister all morning, I NEED QUIET TIME!!!!!

Josiegirl I had lots of fun at yard sales last weekend, found some really cool stuff and was so excited for Monday morning to come so I could share my treasures with the dcks.

WTH was I thinking? Cool new stuff always causes problems because kids want it all for themselves and if anyone even looks at the toys, all he!! breaks loose.
06-27-2018 11:34 AM
Unregistered These children. I have a playroom full of toys. So many choices. Even enough to rotate things. During "free play" (while I make lunch or do dishes) they have free choice of toys. Every single day they choose the same darn box of Duplo Legos. Every darn day. Sometimes I take it away for a week, just so they have to choose something different. As soon as it returns, back to Legos, all day, every day. As soon as we finish the "preschool" part of our morning, it's "can i get the legos out?"
It wouldn't bother me so much if there weren't constant arguments about who gets the wheels, how long he's had the wheels, I want that piece, etc. And, they build the exact same stuff - every day. Makes me want to scream.
That's all.

Oh no fevers are gone and I already have a policy that fevers need to be under 101 without meds for 24 hours after returning to daycare. I donít care the reason for the fever to be honest. As for the HFM from the sounds of it the 2 year olds case was/is very mild but I havenít seen pics or anything. The 10 month old had an awful diaper rash that the parents just assumed was a regular diaper rash bc neither had ever seen a diaper rash and only got concerned when I told them the blister like appearance of it wasnít a normal diaper rash. He had shots last week Wednesday and has also been trying new foods so there were a number of things to consider. Mom said he has/had two spots on his foot and the diaper area is still pretty bad but fever broke on Sunday.

This is the kind of stuff I am getting from my research. None of the moms yet have asked about attending tomorrow yet so I havenít had to give an answer yet. Maybe exclude the 10 month old another day or two if sores in mouth are affecting his feeding like they were yesterday just on the basis that I donít want a crabby kid. If thatís even why he was not eating, heís so hard to get a decent look in his mouth.

I'm not so sure that DCM was telling you the truth about having a "negative test" for it. I truly doubt that any doctor would order lab work for HFM for a child who wasn't critically ill (like, a kid who has cancer, and when they must know exactly which bacteria or virus is attacking the child). Especially unlikely when the child's only symptom is fever. Doctors diagnose HFM by exam.
Sorry the “test” wording was my own as I wasn’t sure if it was a test or an exam. She took the child in bc he also has/had a rash but doc said that it isn’t HFM, she took him in after I texted yesterday that another child in care had a confirmed case. It was written as just a viral rash but not HFM. All children that had fevers/rashes are out today. Just not sure when to accept them back as I’ve never dealt with HFM.

sharlan OMG! My two grandsons (A, 11 and B, 10) live to argue. They've spent 20 mins arguing whether A said "summer's ear" or " swimmer's ear".

It ended with B taking off his swimsuit and going inside to pout for 10 minutes.

Now they're back in the pool like nothing happened.

I agree ☝️. When my son had HFM 2 years ago the pediatrician said there wasnít a test to be done, just an exam. He was excluded from daycare for the week until fever and sores were healed.

My two new moms, both I would say probably 24ish and ftms are Tylenol crazy! ďOh I gave Billy meds this morning bc he seemed off but doesnít have a fever or any symptomsĒ. Just no.

The one that I didnít allow to come today isnít going to be here too much longer anyways as both parents work (or soon will) in another town and are looking to move there. I did not get this information from either parent but rather through the grapevine, small town life. I feel bad but Iím less likely to care when I know they wonít be sticking around.

Rizzle54 A parent complained about me a few weeks ago saying I was screaming at the kids ... I wasnít I was trying to get them to all sit down and iwas using my a loud teacher voice lol cause if I didnít they would all be running around like crazy .. anyways the lady made a comment about me saying Iím lucky I donít treat her child they way I do with the other kids.. the director and owner of my school knew about this but they let it go cause they believed me...so then yesterday there was a moment I was struggling with the other children to get them on the other playground and I had one kid in my hands and the other kid by the arm and the kid i had by the arm dropped himself on the ground so I was kinda dragging him .. so I fixed it I let the kid in my arms go and picked the other kid up right way .. but the same lady from last week somehow saw this and said I was ďhurtingĒ the children and grabbing three kids by the arm at the same time dragging them on the ground ... that didnít happen... so the lady threatened me saying if the school doesnít do anything she will... (note: this lady works across the street ) so to wrap this all up the owner of the school looked at the cameras and said she saw me at stress and that it would be better if I work somewhere else.. oh then two other parents complained about me as well cause they had bite marks on them and they were in my care when it happened ... which was not true...it was just complaint after complaint about me .. itís kinda unfair. Recovering from this is actually putting me in depression cause I had to say goodbye to all my coworkers that I loved and all the kids I got attached to... idk how to recover from this at all it was my first job as a teacher assistant I was there for 1 year..my heart is so broken 💔💔💔💔 I have been looking for new jobs but every night I have been crying myself to sleep...

It's not personal. The staff time to meet the request increases so the fee increases. Just like every other business.

They haven't gotten to it yet so I had to explain why the kids already ate. I am so glad it is Friday.

gumdrops You may bring breakfast to my home if it's before 8:00 and it's healthy. Mom of DCG brings her a hard boiled egg. So, I peel the egg that wasn't boiled correctly because the shell is not coming off good. Then she informs me that she doesn't like the yolk. In the process of trying to remove that from the not perfectly boiled egg, I get egg yolk crumbles all over the table. Annoying!

Yeah nope! I had a 6 year old open my door yesterday. I told him he is not to open my door!
