Dcg almost 2 comes in this morning with a sucker. I made her give it right to dad, he looks embarrassed and proceeded to tell me how she wouldn't let them leave their house this morning, she was kicking him ect. So, he bribed her with a sucker.👍 Great job dad.
Dcg's 3 and 4 months (sisters) come in this morning. Dcg 3 is still ridiculously jealous of her 4 month old sister. It's annoying. Time to deal kid. Dcg 3 apparently doesn't sleep through the night, like ever. They just took her pacifiers away and that's because I said I could NOT believe she still had those. SERIOUSLY? Also, she flat out refuses to potty train anymore, HER choice. Parents blame the "new" baby who is 4 months now.
These parents just need to take the reigns and stop letting her do whatever the hell she wants. A typical snowflake running the home situation there🤪 The baby, 4 months, wants to be held ALL DAY. Soooooo, how is everyone else doing today? Is it Friday yet?

so far so good here. We are officially a diaper-free facility now. My three youngest ones are 2/2.2/2.4. They don't use diapers even during nap time. That makes me happy and proud of them, their parents, and of course myself.

My morning consisted of taking a dog to the vet before pre-K got back. He was favoring a back leg last night/ this morning. Nothing structurally wrong- Doc says it's muscular. Probably just landed wrong or playing too hard. So he's on nsaids for a week or so. At least I only had 1 DCK at the time.

I hope your fur baby feels better soon.

3 yr olds mom said we didn't let him nap all weekend and he fell asleep great. Then said they dont want him to nap here. I said Im so glad it works at your house. Unfortunately...in group care it isnt an option...if he falls asleep...he needs it. This is the same kid that that can sleep 4 solid hrs here. ..and is constantly laying on the floor..barely able to finish lunch with his head up. Parents let him watch the 2 hr version on dumbo....EVERYDAY!!!! This also the child the give a ipad to every nite in the crib because he screams for it. They cant get it out..until he is completely asleep....So..NO mom....if your kid falls asleep during nap time...I will not wake him...just to make your life easier. Probably one of the top non parenting families....in my 30 yrs
Happy Monday.....My wine..is breathing as we speak......

Monday? I feel like I am trapped in some sort of Groundhog Day (movie) scene.....

Family with baby continues dailyvto try and pass off starving baby with the excuse that they are running late... Sorry... but you are here 30 minutes early, you aren't running late for anything other than "alone time" since you don't work until 8:30 and it's only 7:30 now.

An almost 5 yr old DCK peed their pants AT lunch WHILE sitting and didn't say a word about it. When I ask if they had an accident I get the same deer in the headlights look I would get if I asked them to solve and algebraic equation.

Dropped a new (group) toy in the toddler room and all 3 of them are whine-crying "MIIIIIIINE!" because the others are touching it. *gasp*

One of my 3 yr olds "lost" their sock and can't find it (it's laying in the middle of the play room) despite the unsolicited assistance from peers.

....and one of my oldest preschoolers who has been in underwear for a long long time had a series of accidents a while back and was relegated to Pull-ups at rest time for the mandatory 2 week "must stay dry" period.....made it the whole two weeks without a single incident. Got to skip the Pull up during rest time today and of course, peed their pants.

There are not enough to convey how my Monday is going. Thankfully it can only get better as the week goes on. Other than the 'almost freezing' temps forecasted for the end of the week (lower-mid 30ies)

Happy Monday everyone!!

One yr old is continually putting his thumb in 10 month old's mouth, then crying because 10 month old has 8 teeth... and uses them.

My Monday was perfect as far as the kiddos went, despite the 7mo in my room who is suddenly constantly hungry, but I'm not bothered by that. I am however, upset that my CAR WAS STOLEN in the middle of the day yesterday. Still hasn't been found. I just bought that car in April... Fingers crossed.

Today should be better. Hopefully.

So far Tuesday equates to Monday with a side order of "can you not have our daughter (22 months) not take naps anymore" Apparently she screams at home when they put her in her crib to nap so therefore she does not need to nap anymore. I LOVE PARENTS

Monday I was off to take care of some appointments. Still had a parent show up despite my reminder 3 weeks ago, a sign on my door all last week and another reminder on friday. Then had another parent text me to let me know her child wonít be here that day. Like oh well thatís good because Iím closed anyway 🙄🙄

Tuesday is so far so good. I got a call back on a job I applied for last week. Iím hoping all goes well. Iím not sure how much longer I can do daycare.

All is well for my Wednesday, our local fire department came and visited this morning and Friday is the homecoming parade and we are bringing our custom wagon and team of Percharon for the kids to see before we get lined up. I'm so excited because I've been wanting to bring them for a long time

Wednesday
12 toddlers (2-4.5yo)are here + 2 school-agers+3 adults, including me. We are stuck inside because of rain. Fortunately, kids are well behaving and playing pretty well together. It is my first group of kids which is with me since their infants' age. I love it!

Wednesday here - one of my low key days for the week. only 3 kiddos - 3 yo and 2 toddlers. Toddlers come right before lunch time, and one leaves right after naptime.

My daughter and I consider this our 'Friday in the middle of the week'
