I had one the other day also. I knew I'd have to be calling the state to get one anyways but figured I'd 'be ready' in other words cleaned up, appropriate activities available, that kind of thing. No, eeks, when I saw her standing at my door with a note pad, I went into my panic mode. When I panic, I say too much. My house was a complete disaster, it was right after lunch and my dd and I have been working on carnival games. Stuff everywhere. I kept apologizing for the mess. She was super sweet and said 'your home looks inviting and enjoyed by children'. Said I had a wonderful set-up, learning materials for all ages, the kids looked happy(thank you kiddies for being on your bestest behavior for an hour!!!). She didn't write me up for anything, just a few suggestions of what I had to do.
Restock my first aid kit(couldn't find a roll of gauze)
Take the shelf out of my LT Cube Climber because it has a crack in it the kids could get their fingers stuck in.
Oh plus, she only has to check 25% of the children's folders and I could not put my fingers on the file of my former 3 siblings that I agreed to take for a couple weeks this summer. I opened my big mouth and told her that. I know it's in my basement someplace because I keep all my former families' info. She just told me to find it and keep it with the others.

I'm so grateful that's over!!!!
