Default "Because You Are The Mommy....."

A bit of Friday fun.... But, somedays I would really like a shirt logo that says this...

Join me in posting your FAQ'S that can only be fittingly and honestly answered with "Because you are the Mommy"... Just so there are no hard feelings know that I, too, am the Mommy of 3 and have received this soberring answer in the past

I will start:

1. Why should I have to waste my free time having to discipline behavior that only occurs in daycare? He/she never does this at home.....

2. Why should I have to miss work when he/she probably caught this illness from his/her friend at your daycare? It is not my fault.....

3. Why do I have to tell him/her that he/she cannot bring/wear his/her favorite toy/hairbow/high heeled/open toed shoes etc. when it is your policy? I don't like to hear them cry before I have to go to work....



I know you guys have more.....looking forward to them!!!

1. Why do I have to find alternate care for him/her when you (daycare provider) take a week of vacation after giving me 3 months notice? (S)He is your responsibility Mon - Fri from 7:30a - 4:30p (no joke - DCM told me this!)

2. Why do I have to feed my child before bringing him/her to you for care 10 minutes after you cleaned the other children up from their meal/snack?

I'll come up with more. I'm having a really rough day and can't think too clearly. When I get back on top of my game, watch out. I will have a lot more.

Why is dropping the kids off 20 minutes early a big deal?

Who is going to watch my child when you take your vacation? (The vacation that is posted in my handbook that is our annual vacation. They are supposed to read the handbook BEFORE they sign the contract. After a couple months of my caring for their children they FINALLY get a chance to read over the handbook and are now concerned that they don't have care for the two weeks I will be gone. I state in my contract that they are responsible for finding alternate care during that time. UGH!)

Where is my child's toy that they brought yesterday? It didn't come home with them. (It is also in my handbook that no outside toys are to be brought except for on Show and Tell days. Then they only get the toy during show and tell. If your child smuggles a toy in without my knowledge, sorry charlie, I am not going to spend time looking for it.)

I will try to think of more. TGIF!

Why can't I just bring along her breakfast for her?
Why do you get paid on Holidays?
Why do you get vac. days?
Why I can't pick up late sometimes? Will there be a problem with this?
Why can't I just bring their food with them?
WHy can't I come early?
Why do I have to call if picking up early?
Why do I have to call if dropping off 3 hrs. late?
Why do you need a paid 2 week notice?
Why do I need to pay you a 2 week deposit to hold a spot for the summer?
Why can't she just sleep from 10-11:00 and that is it everyday
THe list goes on and on....
