So nice to hear!! Hopefully he continues to improve!

I had two incidences where either a DCK or their family member needed to test. Both tested on Friday. One got their test result back Sunday night while the other is still waiting as of today (Tuesday). They did go to different testing centers but the wait time is sooooo hard.

I hate the stress and anxiety of it all.

This one dcm is driving me crazy lately. First, she comes in before nap to pick-up dcg. The lights are off, the kids are laying down (although, not sleeping yet), and she has her phone on speaker. Like, she doesn't think anything of her phone being on speaker as loud as it can go as a busy tone plays as the kids are down for nap. Then, another dck is playing with these little blocks I've got, and this same dcm informs me that dcg accidentally took some home last week and she will need to bring them back. Was she ever going to bring them back? She didn't say a word until she saw a dck playing with them and she's had them since last week. I'm not expecting them back. Guess I'm gonna have to check all dcg pockets and clothing before leaving. Ugh, I'm ready for a break.

Isn't it crazy how parents can be or can choose to be so ignorant about stuff? I have one that talks on her phone all the time too. My parents aren't coming in due to COVID but it still drives me crazy that she brings her child to the door and I greet them and can't get a single word out because she's chatting away like her kid is just an afterthought. I know it bothers the child alot but the parent seems to not notice or not care.

Speaking of kids taking things...years ago I had a little girl that mentioned to me that she had two of the hairbrushes that went to the My Little Pony's set I had. She said she didn't mean to leave them in her pocket. I asked her if she was planning to bring them back. She said "My mom said I dont have to because you have alot of them". The worst part of it all was mom is a family therapist.

Hang in there.... vacation is coming soon!
Hopefully you are taking one!!

Anything that keeps us safe(r) is good news.

Don't the CDC's guidelines override everyone else's when it comes to covid so we can implement it right away?

With bureaucracies, change down the pipe moves like molasses .

The school bus picks up in front our house. No daycare kids get on it, just my own. I've had TWO separate dcms drive around the bus when the lighted stop sign is pulled out Blows my mind! I thought everyone knows that that is a HUGE no. One of the dcms even complained that the bus driver gave her a look through the window.

The bus driver took pictures of their vehicles both times, so hopefully something happens.

I've only been open for 45 minutes and already I've broken up a knock down drag out fight between my two toddler DCK's both wanting the same item.

Who knew an empty plastic spice container could be the center of so much drama.

Someone who I had fairly close contact with tested positive for COVID earlier this week.This person did always wear a mask around me but I admit to not always wearing one. Itís been over a week since I was around them and I have no symptoms yet. But this has really scared me into always wearing a mask when Iím in contact with others. Iíve been quarantined for the last few days and I guess I have a few more before all is clear. Itís hard not being able to work and I miss my class so much.

Today.

Friday.

Just when I get everyone down to sleep and begin to wrap up the week. That is when Daily Connect decides to get all glitchy.

I can't get to anyone's individual accounts to update info or update events. I just want to be done for the week.

Headed out my driveway in my 4wd explorer and the red lights with ABS system warnings and the brakes locked up. Coasted back down the drive and parked it. Wonder what this will cost me?

Looks like brakes locked up and the thermostat is leaking as well???? Either way, it's being worked on right now, and doesn't look to be too overwhelmingly expensive and ready soon.

Argh!

Dcd picked up dcg yesterday, wearing a mask. Which is unusual. One of the other dck asked why he was wearing one. He said because he was around someone positive and is waiting for his test results

This is the first I've heard about it! Why was your child here all week and why are you in my house???

I can't believe people sometimes. I just want to close until all this is over because people are selfish and untrustworthy and don't think about how their actions affect others.

AS much as I have had to quarantine due to exposure and listen to some parents gripe, I would have termed on the spot....that is disrespectful and selfish!!!! Did you allow the child back today? I sure hope not!

THIS is the reason so many are either sick or dying!! I've had 8 family members with covid, a classmate who came home last week from spending 91 days in various hospitals because of covid and now I've got yet another family member with covid!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE wear your masks, social distance and wash your hands! Our governor has also extended our mask mandate until January 22nd

I agree. Iím much more into mask wearing now that I had a direct exposure to COVID two weeks ago. Iíve always been good about wearing it in public places but not so good about wearing it at work. Itís hard at times but I want to be safe and to keep others safe.

My vent for the day. Parents please send your kids to school with a warm coat. This is winter and unless the weather is frigid/raining/snowing/icy we are going to play outside for a short time anyway. The kids need fresh air even if it is a little chilly. A little hoodie just doesnít cut it when itís 36 degrees outside.

This is exactly why I have been closed since March. I just canít deal with this and I know a few families that would pull this stunt. I would terminate care!

Sorry you are having to deal with this stress

Default 1st Term

Just had to term my first parent ever. The baby was no problem whatsoever - so it sucks in that regard - but the parent was weird and I could tell things were going to just continue going downhill ... at least for me; she gave me the impression she lives in her own little world. I was just so uncomfortable and it was messing with my anxiety.

These are not the type of interactions any provider wants or looks forward to. I feel so much better now. It's a weight off my shoulders. Will be updating quite a few things in my parent handbook though.

It's hard for sure but good for you for listening to your instincts!! You won't ever regret doing that.

I have a parent right now that for some reason makes me have anxiety as well. I don't know why as they aren't breaking any rules or being rude etc but there is just something about them that makes me feel dread when they pull in the driveway every day.

I usually look forward to a bit of chit chat with parents upon drop off and pick up but this parent has me wanting to appear too busy to chat every day.

Good for you for recognizing and solving it! That's one of the biggest obstacles for people in this job.

Can I just stop and say I hate online school. Our province offered either online or in person. We chosse in person. It has been nerve racking a bit with the thought of extra exposure at school, in regards to having to shut down daycare.

This week though all students have had to switch for this week (so far) to virtual. Now I feel like I'm spun out between surpivising DKs kids and then online learning for my two guys grade 2 and sr. Kindergarten. They ate both skipping gym today as they have it back to back both during nap.

Please let them go back.

During recess, ds2.5 got mad at dd8 for using the wagon. Ds sat down in the snow behind a car bed and cried. DCB3.5 was pushing a tractor and nowhere near DS. I decided to shovel the porch off. All of a sudden, I look up, DS and DCB are wrestling and not in fun. I rush over, separate them, and try to get out of DCB what happens. DCB only stands there crying for his mom, like always. I have no idea what happened but I do know that dcb went over to ds who was crying.

DCM arrived and DCB announces proudly that he wrestled and I explain what I know.

Later DD blurts out, I know what happened. She goes on to say DCB rammed DS with the tractor. I asked a few questions and she says she did not see it but feels that it is the only thing that makes sense since DCB went over to DS. She has also noted to me that she finds dcb to be an instigator or tends to poke the bear until something happens.

Truthfully, I believe her theory, DCB has done similar things before, so I would not put it past him at all. There is a term in his future, just needs to get rid of the nagging feeling that it is not quite the right time.

Great timing on the 5 yo's part.

Honestly, I wonder why they didn't think of doing remote everywhere, returning from the holidays, at least for a couple of weeks. You'd think that would help cut down the spread. IDK.

I've got a dcm of the first kid i started watching and she likes to take credit for my daycare.

Dcm: "I can't believe that you've been caring for dck for X amount of years. I mean, he's kinda the reason you started this."

Yeah, not because of money or paying bills, but because of YOU and YOUR kid *insert eye-roll*

Oh my goodness!
I have her relative

I stopped taking infants for years.
Finally took one and he was a really good baby.

DCM makes a point of telling every parent of any infant I have now that her child is the reason I now accept babies.

Heís also the reason I stopped taking SA kids but I donít hear her telling any one that.

When I say your child needs to be here PRIOR to snack time in order to have snack, that means they need to be here BEFORE snack time. Not right at snack time when the plates are fixed and kids are sitting down eating, but BEFORE.

Then I'M the one that gets the dirty look when I have to tell dcp that they've missed snack.

Grr. I'm in a mood today :/

DCG was up from 3-6 this morning...she's 3.5! This happens approx 1x/week. Usually she naps for 1/2 hr and is good to go, I think today is going to be different

Sounds like you get to send three kids home today.

I would let them go for that. Instant termination for dope and drop.

Sad.

There is a huge risk in accepting kids on laxatives into care. Hope they have excellent insurance.

Some parents don't want to have to deal with the poopy diapers that result.

Dcm said dcg (most difficult child) wouldn't be coming today...guess who shows up this morning.

Picks her up early to go to her physical therapy and says she won't be bringing her back. Guess who just messaged me and said she's bringing her back.

Ugh, never fails.

Yes.

One drop-off and one pick-up, per day.

DCM wants 3.5yo nap cut in half because she is up for 4 hrs in the middle of the night. I don't think nap time is the problem...sounds like a parenting problem!

"That sounds difficult. How much exercise is she getting after dinner, DCM? You should start there. Our naptime schedule is not up for debate."

I know people have different opinions on the whole Covid thing, but I can't help but be annoyed when a dcp downplays the seriousness of it. I find myself explaining that as a business owner, I take it serious because I would have to close for a period of time.

I just had a dcm say that "oh, looks like the flu disappeared" and "most people don't even get that sick", "it's stupid", etc. I told her I've been lucky that it hasn't affected daycare yet and that I keep on expecting to have to close at some point.

It's like people don't get how the virus can affect daycare, which in turn will affect THEM.

People are so DONE!!!! We just want it OVER and NORMALCY! It has drained everyone mentally, physically and everything in-between. There are some truths, some myths and we will forever be effected by this time in our life; but still move on to greater things is my hope!

OMG! Will we ever get back to normal???!!!

The DCKs are an absolute nightmare today!

Local school has been remote since a week before Xmas. I have 4 SA plus 2 of my own teens at home doing remote learning.

Iíve been up since 4am because I had to go out and do snow removal before my first client arrived. Of course they were an hour late 😡.

Iíve got each SA kid in separate rooms so they can focus without screaming toddlers or interrupting each other with their meets. This means Iíve lost additional napping areas so the 3 year old that fidgets through nap time keeps all the other kids up. If Iím not hovering over him, he sneaks around and takes out noisy toys.

I have one Kindergartner that has her schoolwork on paper. She knows everything there is to know about everything except how to do her schoolwork. Actually itís just a game she plays to get out of doing schoolwork. I let her use her tablet or watch a movie during nap but she canít do that without yelling and waking everyone up. If I try to quietly help her with school work, she has a meltdown because she doesnít want to do it.

When the SA kids arenít learning theyíre roughhousing and encouraging the younger kids to misbehave.

ATM were trying to get through nap. All I can do is sit in the dark starving and having to use the bathroom. The second I try to take a quick break, DCB will be up poking at other sleeping kids.

Will the kids ever go back to school???!!!

Calgon, take me away!!!!!

I found my DD old snow pants I am saving for ds.

what is with these zipper mittens? Every time a kid comes with them, I spend more time putting them on then they do wearing them. The only other option is one layer knitted mittens.
