I resisted the urge....to accept a "friend" into my daycare. She really isnt that good of a friend to me because she only comes around when she needs something. But I patted myself on the back for not agreeing to consider her part time infant (ugh.....hate part time infants, they are the hardest!) because she really is hard to work with sometimes and she needed the full week available but only wanted to pay for two to three days per week. I'd rather leave the spot open than accept someone who is going to be a problem. I watched her older daughter several years ago and it was not fun. Mom is a helicopter mom (she called me to remind me to wipe her child when changing a diaper.....ummmm duh!) and her other child was spoiled.

yay me! dodged a bullet!
