Okay, while reading the thread about a hungry baby being dropped off, I noticed a poster who said a parent made a request to have their child completely fed and ready at pick up. This got me thinkin'.......(this could be dangerous.....) what is the weirdest request you have had a parent make to you?
me? I had a mom bring her 3 yr old daughter into care in the wee hours of the morning, like 5 a.m. and the dcg was wrapped in a blanket. Mom handed her over to me. I thought she was sleeping. Nope, she was covered in vomit! Mom says: "She threw up in the middle of the night and I don't have time to bathe her....." She tried to hand me clothes etc. (Her kids usually came early in pj's and dressed after they were fully awake)
I immediately handed her back and was like, "Seriously??!?" Any ways, it turns out that the little girl had an ear infection and her ear drum had ruptured and she was throwing up because of it. Long story short....this mom was very young and lots of calls had been made to dhs because of her. She ended up getting her ducks in a row and all is well now. This all happened back in 1997. So I am curious...what is the weirdest, strangest request a parent has asked of you?
