I got to love on the newest member of my daycare family today. 9 days old, 7.5 lbs of snuggly love! The soft hair, the newborn noises, the 'gas' smiles. I was in heaven He's new enough that he still has the newborn smell. He doesn't start until January but his sister will be here once a week during mom's maternity leave so I'll get some baby snuggles once a week at least

Don't you love it??!! I adore babies and getting them right from the start tends to make a stronger bond(at least with me). Have to admit babies do scare me but then sometimes every child does. Lol

My MIL told us this weekend that she's retiring from work on November 30th this year, we were not thinking that it would be for a few more years. I'm doing a happy dance cause now she wants to walk my son to and back from school most days this winter. Now I don't have to years up the kids every day when it's frezzing cold and below 20 celsius.

Daycare family is moving away at the end of this school year and mom has started packing up the house and donated tons of toys to us and is bringing them a little at a time as she sorts through them. Today we got another box and brought them in at pick up. Another mom saw them sitting on the counter and asked what they were for. I told her a family had donated them and she replies ďdo you want mine too? My kids have too much stuffĒ ... why yes, we love ďnewĒ toys, bring them over!!

Not daycare related but I had my first ultrasound this morning and baby is perfect! Measuring 9w6d (exactly where it should be) heartbeat 165 got to see it wiggling around which was super cute. Now I can relax a bit and start getting excited!

Assumed it was going to be a rough sugar hangover day, especially since 2 of them stayed out until 9:30 last night. They were all very good and are all sleeping like little angels right now.
AND I took all the Halloween decos down before they came this a.m. and it no longer looks like the Dollar store in here.

I was exhausted this morning and dreading having all the littles all day. My mom surprised me and came and helped out for 2 hours. One child, who was supposed to arrive at 8:30 got held up at a doctors appt and didn't arrive until noon where she quickly ate lunch then took a 3.5hr nap! It ended up being a much smoother, easier day than I'd expected which was awesome!

I HAD everything updated through the last week of October. Trying to stay on top of things and I went to update what weíve had of November yesterday and my laptop wonít even turn on! Of course I didnít back it up.. at least Iím 90% sure I didnít but there is a slight chance at least some of it is on a pendrive but I canít turn my computer on to check it. Meal counts, hours open, daycare items purchased.. every single thing was updated! I hope the computer guy can get it fixed. I have the paper copies if he canít but man thatís a lot of work to have it all typed up.

Schools are out today for thanksgiving break. I reluctantly took on two school aged older siblings of two of my currently enrolled day care families. The 5 year old was one that I had a very rough summer with before K. I was very worried about how the day was going to go and it turns out he grew up a little over the last 3 months. Also heís napping which I didnít think he would as naps arenít part of K here anymore. The morning went so well! My niece is also out today so that might have something to do with it.. haha.

Everyone asleep except older dcg. Afternoon will consist of our thanksgiving craft and doughnuts for snack courtesy of dcb1ís mom for his daycare birthday treat. Happy 4 day weekend!!

Default A little man and his tubes...

I've got this little guy, 2 years old and he got his tubes placed on Monday. He comes back yesterday and is already talking to much more. Such a night and day difference. Better listening ears and is an active participant in group time. I think I am going to try and get him to say "I love you mom" today so when mom picks up, she will hear it.
My daughter got tubes at about the same age and it was such a difference with her speech but the two best things that could have come of it was the first time she danced to music and the first time she said "I love you momma". Brings tears just remembering it.
Have a splendid day every!

Dcg was a preemie. 3 lbs at birth, on oxygen and feeding tube. Always below the charts weight/height wise. She was delayed on her 3, 6, and 9 month assessments. Had almost caught up at her 1 yr assessment and was 5th percentile. 15 month assessment she was caught up developmentally and up to 10th percentile.

All that to say at 18 months she is ahead developmentally and solidly on the charts in the 25th percentile. I've had her since she was 3 months old (by birthdate, adjusted she was 6 weeks.) It's so cool to see the progress she's made!

I have a former preemie in care, and at 2.5 she's a whopping 20lbs. Eats like a HORSE though.

I didn't want to post since other people have not been as fortunate. But yes, had a biopsy last Thursday.

Even if others aren't as lucky.....it should NEVER stop you from shouting out your good news and relief!!

I wish there was always more "lucky" ones than not!

Filled my 2 spots parent gave notice earlier this month for 2 kids for Christmas) today with kids that come in March. One was going to start next September when I had room but now they are starting now. The older one is 3 and was in my care before the younger one his brother who will be 1 then (mom's been on mat leave). The 3 year old will leave in Sept but I'll have a baby opening then cause another one ages up so it will be easy to fill. I will be empty for a bit but this way I can fill the 2 + spot.

I just got an unexpected delivery from the Clinique fairy.

Order was canceled/refunded due to availability but a couple nice gift sets came (with full sized eyeliners!), anyway.

I Clinique.

Dcb(4), aka my little buddy, brought me a birthday gift on Tuesday. He was so excited, he picked the gift, wrapped the gift, made the card, and picked the bag to put it in (a robot one!) He picked out lotion because my hands get dry, bubble bath (body wash) so I can take a bubble bath after work, and qtips, because we use those for painting and we ran out on Monday. He talked his mom into stopping at the store and buying some on Monday night. 😁

The lotion and body wash smell amazing. I love them. Such a sweet little guy!

Wanted to find my sons a set of luggage to go with their Christmas gifts but could not find a deal I was looking for, but I sure did today. Got four-piece sets for less than a 1/4 of the regular price...were pink ticketed for half-price but then when I checked out they were even half of that...I LOVE good shopping deals! AND forgot to add they let me use a $20 coupon I had.....

I have a dcg in my care, 19 months old. I've had her since 3 months. She is the sweetest, funniest thing ever. Just full of life. Today I just wanted to write about how thankful I am for her I surely do enough complaining about behaviors and such.

One of my very favorite families of all time stopped by today, all 3 kids and their mom. The youngest is in 1st grade so they've been gone a couple of years. The boys came in just like they were here yesterday lol. I had a lovely chat with mom and the oldest (daughter, in high school now, where did the time go!). It did my heart good to hear they still think about me from time to time

It's almost like a reset button. Maybe being away makes them appreciate us more

First day outside today in weeks!! We went on a nice walk, played outside in the snow, and no one cried the entire time! Of course I only had 3/6 this afternoon.. but still a success in my book

I did not earn the butter cream filled pizzelles this afternoon, but I ate them anyway.

And they were awesome

I only had my 1 sweet little 16 mo until noon today. We had the whole morning to just us. I let her do all kinds of things that I usually don't have the time to actually let her do as much as I should. I put a smock on her, sat her at the big kid table, gave her a paint brush, some paint(and paper of course) and let her just go to it. She turned to look at me like she was the biggest cheese ever.

Then I found this 2" high wooden box so she could stand by the window herself and watch the birds, without needing my help(she loves her independence Lol). I love it when they're so little that the simple things make their day.
Sometimes I wish they'd never turn into those 'I'm bored unless my eyes are super-glued to my iphone' kind of kids.

I am not a regular football fan but I follow scores etc on a light level....just enough to know what's going on.

But I just have to say that even as a non-regular football fan, yesterday's game was awesome! Absolutely one of the best
game's I've ever seen!

SUPER proud to be a Viking!!! Go Vikings!!

About 40 of us were gathered to watch this and I had went to the kitchen to get a plate of food....and everyone started screaming and yelling and other things There were many saints fans so they were SILENT. I am a college football fan, don't get into the pros much but that was an AWESOME game especially the last play that will go down as one of the all-time best

I am a die hard Packer fan but I grew up with a best friend that was a Viking fan. I was cheering for them from the get go yesterday.. no one else in my house was but that game was amazing! What a finish! I also think it would be cool for them to play the super bowl in their home stadium.. thatís never happened before!

That's not very common, but sure is great when it happens.

We are having a new stove (for heat not cooking) installed downstairs today which mean DC has been upstairs all day, which we never go upstairs. Has been lots of crazy, especially since there's been a large amount of noise. As nap time started it sounded they were jackhammering inside the chimney.

With all that, all the kids are napping. The baby was fighting it so I put on a movie and am holding him while he sleeps (against every personal nap rule I have). I haven't just sat down and held a sleeping baby and watched a movie in forever. Soooo relaxing.

Re: holding a sleeping baby....I felt guilty every single time I held my 16 mo sleeping dcg when she was a baby because...well, ya just don't do that, right? But she is THE best sleeper now. I did it for a couple months.

Default I love my families...

My current DC parents are so supportive of my illness policies, but one went so far as to keep little home today because half his office is down with the flu and he doesn't want to expose the rest of us just in case ( not that we may not already be, but it's the thought)... just 2 littles today and I don't even have them until 9

Not daycare related, but my son was put on an IEP for reading last year. His teacher emailed me earlier that he stayed in the classroom for his math test today and scored a 91% without any modifications or extra help! I'm so proud of him!

I have a kid in the group who is... let's just say, a challenge. he interrupts, yells, throws toys, food, and fits, gets into fights... and yes, he suffers the consequences for his behavior. and no, he doesn't like it. and I'm the bad guy enforcing it all.
today, during the second "class" (it's a pre-K group), he says, out of the blue, "miss MP? I want to buy you flowers. can I buy you flowers?"
<--- my face
yeah, he is probably kissing up. unexpected, nonetheless.

Or has something terribly devious planned. Gotta love 'em. First they drive you crazy, then they say something like that.

I was talking to my husband about the lack of good quad strollers for non-paved roads. We live on a gravel road and have a very large yard so I need more of an offroad stroller. My double jogging stroller is great but I am gaining little ones and it's not big enough. He is going to modify a quad for me to add pneumatic wheels. I am so excited!

My high needs dcb didnít come today and my stress level has gone way, way down because of it. The kiddos who are here have had so much fun and played so well together. Added bonus that itís a gloomy, rainy day outside so all the kiddos are napping so well and Iím actually getting a real break for a change! Itís amazing what one less child can do for the group atmosphere.

I hesitantly served rice to 4 kids 2 and under at lunch today, totally expecting to be vacuuming rice off the floor for the rest of the afternoon. I am pleased to report that even the baby didn't throw any rice on the floor, and there was very little mess on the table too. It's the little things that make our days bright.

I stumbled across this:

Strawberry Short Cake Recipe:
(Serves 2)
To make, melt 2 oz white chocolate chunks into a small mixing bowl and allow to cool. Cut up fresh strawberries. Whisk 3 oz whipped cream with 2 tbsp confectionersí sugar until thick. Stir in 1 oz Baileys Strawberries & Cream. In a separate bowl, beat 3.5 oz cream cheese, 2 tbsp confectionersí sugar, and 1 oz Baileys Strawberries & Cream until smooth. Add in the melted white chocolate and beat again to combine. Add 7 oz fresh cut strawberries and stir with a spoon. Dividing all ingredients into 2 glasses, place 1/4 cup crushed biscuits into the bases of the glasses and sprinkle .5 oz Baileys Strawberries & Cream on top. Add half of whipped cream, sliced strawberries, and half of cream cheese mix. Repeat these layers again using remaining ingredients. Garnish with cut strawberries. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

I've been working with dcb for about 2 months on not tattling. I often ask "Are you telling me this to keep Susie safe or to get her in trouble?" Or I respond, "Whose job is it to take care of that?" He'll say "your job" & then follow it with a "but" & continue tattling. Today he said, "Susie's not eating her food." I said, "Whose job is it to make sure Susie eats?"
Dcb said, "Susie's." Yes! And whose job is it to make sure dcb eats? He says, "Mine!"

Yes! Great job! You've got it dude, now do your job!" He went back to eating w/o another word & so far hasn't tattled all morning. I think he might finally have made the connection!!!

Last week I informed parents we would be going "back to basics" for the next couple of weeks to get everyone back on the same daily routine. One mom was super skeptical about it, sure their child was not ready for a set schedule.

Today DCM came in so excited that her child slept through the night for the first time in a long time. She conceded that this stricter schedule was what her child needed to fall I to a routine at home too.

It is always so nice when a parent is able to see that I am acting in the best interest of their child when I set rules and routines.

I am off tomorrow and all next week. We are going away as a family (overnight) during the break and I'm so happy. We need that time!
I pretty much have my resume, cover letters, applications and certificates ready to go.

Guys I have the best dcm ever. I totally messed up the dates I was closed. She paid the full amount this week and I wasn't charging for this closure so I messaged her and let her know to credit Next Week. She thought the closure was next Monday and I realized that was the date I told her! But it's not Monday, it's this Thursday and it's two appointments an hour away that would be near impossible to reschedule. I felt awful. But guys, she wasn't mad at all! She was just like hey this stuff happens, no big deal, found coverage already and is all set. I am incredibly thankful for her. I still can't believe I messed this up but man, had this happened this time last year I can't begin to tell you the problems and drama this would have caused.

Bright side maybe drop in care at the center will be dead? I was already hoping it would be as itís the day before Easter and their are no classes this week (connected to a ymca, think swim.. exercise etc..) because of spring break for the local kids so we will see!!

The weather is slowly getting warmer, which makes it easier to get outside.

A FULL house for the first time in a year!!

Starting to prepare for our 8 day cruise in June.

Started 2 new kids today.

One 4 yrs old the other 2 yrs old.

BOTH ate fantastic and BOTH are sound asleep.

I know it can to other way just as quickly but I've always believed (or told myself anyways) that if a child eats well and sleeps well, I can fix/deal with anything else.

I should mention we eat A LOT differently and rest here A LOT differently than a lot of places so if neither child balked at either activity, I think they'll work out just fine.

Did a complete rearrange of my room last night and this morning. It's amazing how you can't see how much things aren't working until you fix it. The little guys have MORE range, the older kids have two nice spaces for play with small toys, arts, building, etc... And I can more easily control which toys are "out" and accessible.
