My own guy did this a couple months ago with a toy drill bit, but he pooped. Oh the fun.

It was very immature of me but as I dialed her phone number, I was kind of chuckling at her last name and thinking how embarrassing it must be to share a name with the actress in an infamous porn movie. Someone on the other end of the phone answered the call and I asked to speak with Judy Lovelace. When Judy came to the phone and said hello, without thinking I said, "Hi. Linda?" Thank goodness she had a sense of humor!

That memory led to another; same job. I answered a call from a customer asking to speak with "Ane-yone". I explained there was no one there by that name and asked if I could help her with something. She got angry with me and insisted she was told to call our number and ask to speak with Ane-yone. I again explained there was no one by that name there but I had access to her file and could help her. She put the phone down for a minute, saying she was going to check the message her co-worker had given her. In the background, I could hear hysterical laughter. She came back to the phone apologizing. The message she got said to call our department's 800 number and that "anyone" would be able to help her.

Sitting here at my desk, the sun shining in through the windows, cool breeze across my face, reading my book with toddler tunes playing.

I suddenly realize it is really quiet. No banging blocks, no snapping magnet sets. I look around and panic a bit because I see no children.

I have already taken everyone to the door, signed them out and for no reason at all sat back down at my desk. I have been "off work" for almost 15 minutes and am home alone.

Is this how it starts? The slow slide into madness?

DW was at work yesterday and realized the person she was talking to looked real familiar. It was a DCM from my center days. DCM had a picture on her ipad of me and my 2 year old class including her daughter. The reason it was on her ipad- she was putting together a digital picture montage for her daughter's HS graduation.


I'm old and been doing this way too long.

Well, you do have to get it on the air or you won't make any money off of it.

DH texted "First time in 3 years I take Good Friday off, and one of my teams gets arrested for cocaine and hookers on the company truck." A little TOO good of a Friday, if ya knowwhadImean.

Um, wow. "Thinly sliced cremini mushrooms..." etc. If my own children asked this of me, their mother, I would feel like I had failed massively as a parent. But that may be because one of my parenting goals is to teach my kids how to live simply and that "it's not all about you."

Because our church is pretty close knit, a few meals and some help is often the norm after a baby. But a person who got too picky for a non-medical reason would be considered a bit of a pain in the neck.

One of my neighbors would likely receive a loaf of bread and some soup. Which would probably be what my own family was eating for dinner.

Um, wow. How much soy and X has that guy ingested during his lifetime??


“A meal would be awesome. If you feel comfortable reaching out before you arrive to see if we might need anything else — that'd be even more awesome.”

Included in their list of requests were their favorite meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including paleo breakfast egg muffins with thinly sliced cremini mushrooms, chocolate peanut butter energy balls and lamb meatball stew with orzo.

If we could use some food but prefer no distractions, I’ll put a big white cooler in our side yard,” Burns wrote.

I am fairly confident what would be in the flaming bags my neighbors would leave him. Dude better learn how to make a grilled cheese sammich.

"Childcare needed. Random hours, lousy pay, bad kid but this Mom needs to go back to school for things to get any better. Will be grateful for any help you can give."

I like her.

She had 3 offers in minutes.

One of my families is about to head off to Disneyland. Dcb5, who has severe speech delays, keeps trying to tell me that he and his dad are going on the Buh-wy-eah ride. It sounded an awful lot like he was saying they were going on the Budweiser ride.

I finally had to ask dcd to clarify. Turns out there's a Buzz Lightyear ride. Phew!

Dcm: can you just let snowflake run around without a diaper to clear up His rash from having diarrhea at home?
Me: No. (silence)
Dcm: (silence). Then “oh because you have carpet”
Me: yes and It’s unsanitary. Let me go remove his diaper so he can be diaper free at home
DCM: NO! I have wood floors and he’d Ruin them
With peeing & poop!!!
Me: But he REALLY should be diaper free. You just said it and o AGREE 100%. (Silence)
Dcm: snowflake! It’s time to go home!!!!


Practically runs out the door!!!!

Perfect example of expecting us to do things at dc that they won't do at home.

"Miss Pepperth, you look just like Anna from frozen with the white stripe in your hair." This, from a 5 year old, is a major compliment...I think.

2.5 yo dcg does not want to sleep. As long as she stays in one place, there isn't much more I can do. Have tried everything short of hog tying and duct taping. So she's in there just chattering away, talking about anything and everything, some words I can understand but some gibberish. Very cute gibberish. So my phone rings and she answers it(not really) says hewwo and just keeps talking to someone she's imagining. Maybe it's one of those times you just had to be here but she's so darn precious and sweet. I'm gonna miss this little munchkin.

Uhoh she just came tiptoeing around the corner.

This started out as something vent worthy but in the end is actually kind of funny....

DCD comes to pick up. DCM does 95% of all drop offs/pick ups but has something going on this week so DCD is doing it all. He's done it before and let's just say he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed but he's a nice enough guy...just doesn't seem to have a clue about parenting...(and this is #2 child). Child just turned 2 yrs old a few weeks ago.

Anyways DCD comes to pick up. DCK is ready to go. I change everyone and give them a little "freshen up" (wiping faces/hands and checking clothing) just prior to when I know they'll be picked up so everyone goes home fresh and clean.

DCD gets child. They are gone for about 10 minutes and he returns. I thought they maybe forgot something...

Nope. DCD comes in carrying DCK and says: "Miss BC, we've got a little situation here."

Me "Oh, what's wrong?"

DCD: "DCK had a blow out in the car and needs new pants"

THEN HE ATTEMPTS TO HAND DCK TO ME OVER THE GATE!

I back away and say "DCK has extra clothing in their cubby basket" and I point towards the basket.

DCD looks a bit dumbfounded.
I just know he's waiting for me to take care of it.

He asks if I have a plastic bag and a few wet wipes....

I hand him a bag and assume he is going to change DCK.

Nope, he just stands there.

After a few minutes...he says "Well I suppose I can just take DCK home."

SO he scoops DCK up and walks back to the car.

Daycare hack:
When the kids realize the sidewalk disappeared during nap time, tell them they're all detectives and their job is to find out where the sidewalk went.

Enjoy 20 minutes of children getting along, and a hot cup of coffee, while the detectives do their detecting.

When you have an adorable photo all ready for brightwheel and as you go to post it, you realize someone has a death grip on his crotch

Thankfully it was croppable.

It is so widespread these days; it's as if people don't look at what they've written.

New infant starts tomorrow. So over the weekend I set up pack& play and rotated in a couple baskets of infant toys. DCG3 (a bit a "look at me" diva) comes in, takes one look, and goes "Why are those there?" When I explained I had a new baby girl starting she was not happy. Been moping about the baby coming into "her" space all morning. Sorry kiddo- you won't be the only girl or the youngest anymore.

Dory & Nemo start going insane out back- growling, snarling, barking. I look out the window and they are in full "defend the realm" mode over a frog. Funniest thing was it would hop closer to them and they would yelp and jump back. Then go right back to acting mean and tough. As long as they stayed 4 feet away from the vicious invading frog monster.
