Default What in the World?!

This morning, when one of my dcb6 arrives, dcm gets him out of the car, and carries him to the door- this isnít unusual, she ALWAYS carries him to the door. I think itís ridiculous, but itís not a big enough deal to me to say something to her about it.

So she carries him to the door and says, ďheís dead to the world.Ē I just kind of laughed and she said, ďNo, seriously, heís asleep. I canít get him to wake up.Ē I ask her if heís alive and she says well, heís breathing. My 12 year old daughter asked if he was in a coma, and dcm says sheís starting to wonder because he wonít wake up.
So dcm sits him in a chair at the table and begins taking off his jacket, his head falls back and bumps the back of the chair- no response from dcb at all! So Iím thinking what in the world is wrong with this child and as dcm is trying to get him to wake up, I position myself to where she canít get out the door because Iím not going to let her leave until he wakes up. Iím not about to be held responsible for whatever is going on with him.
He finally did wake up, smiled at his mom, but seemed disoriented for a few minutes.
Dcm says he fell asleep at 8pm after playing hard. So he slept all night, she went to wake him up and couldnít wake him up, she dressed him for school like a Ďrag dollí, then put him in the car, buckled him in, drive to my house, unbuckled him, carried him inside, sat him in a chair, his head bumps the back of the chair and she still couldnít wake him up! Anyone else find this crazy? IĎve never seen anything like it. And the fact that when my daughter asked if he was in a coma and her response was Iím beginning to wonder seems odd to me too. If I had any part of me wonder if my child was in a coma, I wouldnít be taking them to daycare- weíd be going to the hospital to figure out why they wonít wake up!
I checked with a friend who works at the school and she said he is acting fine now, so thatís good, but Iím still wondering what would cause him to be out cold like that.

**LIABILITY**

^ That's me screaming there.

This is the perfect example of why every child should be coming into daycare walking freely and of their own volition.
Awake, prepared for the day and conscious/healthy/coherent/free from substances... because I refuse to go to jail for a parent.

Something seems very off with DCM's actions. At very least DCM needs to understand that that never happens again and you won't accept a child unless they are alert and oriented. I'm not sure they would be enrolled with me much longer. I would document this thoroughly.

My concerns would be cold/fever-reducing medications, an unrecognized head bleed or ingestion of narcotics. Sure, he could have simply snuck out of bed and played Legos until 4 am. I am glad you made her stay until he woke up fully. I would definitely document it, though.

This mom is something else! She called me one day 10 minutes before school let out to tell me that the child had an issue at school with diarrhea and wanted to know if I had extra underwear he could borrow. I told her he couldnít come here with diarrhea and that he would be excluded for 24 hours. She said he wasnít sick and that he just held his poop too long which caused him to poop uncontrollably. I told her my policy stands and he would not be allowed back until 24 hours had passed. I just donít get people sometimes!
