I agree with this. Don't even ask them for payment. If they don't pay then bring into Monday. Like the biter person said, don't chase your payments. It just gives them opportunity to make excuses.

I tried the changing table but I just didn't like it. I like the floor much better! Once the children are around 4 months they are SO difficult to change on a changing table. Ugh.

I recommend this. I had the food program lady visit a few months before opening my doors, just to get the hang of things and be ready to go when I could open. I wanted all my ducks in a row.
