From here on out I'd recommend taking all federal holidays off with pay. Most providers I know, including myself, already do.
I agree with this. It definitely does suck and I've been there a few times and I would casually mention to mom that her child will be the only one there but from my experience the SAHM's who have their children in full day care on a holiday aren't going to care much! I would just suck it up and learn from the experience!
