Default Family Quit On Me - I Feel So Happy Now

I was feeling so down last week about daycare and I finally know now what it was. It was this ONE family who had a sibling situation here. I've had SO many problems with them over the past 2 years... The mom was crazy (talked way too much - very manipulative) and her kids seemed to bring every disease possible into the daycare. Also the DCG was a 3 yr old bully... always finding someone to hit or push.

She gave me a 2 week notice due to them moving 30 minutes away and I was SO happy to hear it. I tried to "pretend" to be disappointed, but after I hung up the phone, I was dancing around the house with joy! lol

It sucks to have to try to replace TWO kids but at least she came today and paid for the last 2 weeks in cash and took all their things. So I have 2 weeks to try to find at least one replacement.

This reminds me why I should avoid sibling situations though. When they do leave, it really takes a big chunk of income along with them. Even if I'll be a little poor for awhile - I dont care. Just having them gone was a God send to me!! Thank you Jesus! I feel a renewed sense of love for doing daycare now!

I've had that same feeling! I had a family leave me high and dry once and it was the BEST thing to happen to me. I didn't realize how much I resented them and all the problems they really created until they were gone.

Blessing in disguise??

When one door closes another opens. So glad it is working out on it's own.

We have actually had a good time making up "dream ads" (we never posted them)
childcare available-no psycho parents-no biting kids-no we won't raise your kids for 16 hours a day- and just leave the kids on the porch and ring the bell so we don't have to deal with your drama
