Default Feel a Little Irritated

One of my daycare kids came in to day she is 4 and said my mom was mad that the sunscreen was too hard to get off and that I put too much on. Ok well for one they have the option to bring their own or use mine and for 2 she is dark complected so obviously white sunscreen on a dark skinned person is going to be obvious. I mean wouldn't you think she would just be thankful she is being protected? I think I'm going to mention it tonight at pick up and remind them that they can bring their own. Just felt irritated by that.

The crap kids say sometimes really annoys me too. I would also ask if they'd like to bring their own and leave it up to them.

Speaking of annoying, I'm going to drop my vent here too I have a drop in that made exaggerated disgusted noises when I set his plate down in front of him today. He said "this is gross! Nasty!" It ticked me off. My own 3 year old said "if you don't like mamma's food you should go in time out" haha! Then a of my regular kids told me I'm "the best cooker ever!" and ate just fine. We had slow cooker pork roast, buttered bread with cheese, and steamed potatoes and carrots.

It's so frustrating when I have parents that literally take orders of each kid for what they want for dinner, it's no wonder they wont eat what is served.

I love it when a child says that. Sometimes it just makes my day. I was rewarding the children with Frozen stickers one day and one little girl whined that she wanted Elsa not Olaf. Another child calmly said. ďYou get what you get and donít throw a fit.Ē So cute.

I donít read much into what kids say. It couldíve been that dcm said something like, ďThis sunscreen isnít coming off easily.Ē And dck took it to mean dcm was mad. Iíve learned to just not worry about it....Iíd keep doing what Iím doing, and if dcm truly has a problem with it, she can address it with you herself.
