Tomorrow is one of my favorite type of days!

I only have 4 kids scheduled so the day will be VERY low key but I will be able to get ALOT of paperwork done as well as a ton of things I have been putting off for a while.




@jenn I hope you feel better soon too!

I'll be working and will likely have every single child here. That's always how it works out.

It's also a birthday day so there will be sugary donuts shared at snack time (that is what the parent is bringing). Holy cow. Help me.

9 here today and it's going great! I've even managed to keep my 2 "rowdy kids" from being too rowdy.

Feel better sick ladies! Drink some hot tea, sit in a chair, and observe children playing.

I almost got the day off.

I have sisters, 7 & 4, whose dad is off, so they're staying home.
I have a 4 yr old girl who is sick, so she AND her 9 yo brother will be staying home.
I have an 8 yo girl who, when I texted Mom that the 7 yr old girl and 9 yo boy would not be here, she asked if she could stay home with Dad, who works at home.

So that's 5 of my 6 who will NOT be here.

I then texted Mom of my 3 yo girl (with my fingers totally CROSSED!) and said, "Just a heads up that your daughter will be the only one here, so if she wants to bring something to play with, she can."

I was hoping Mom would say let's just take her to Grandma's so you can have the day off. Nope. She wrote back, "Sounds great. See you in the morning."

Oh well.... we'll find something to keep us busy I guess!!

Eww what a bummer

Maybe she will pick her up early if you stress to the mom that she will be the ONLY one in care. Therefore she will have no one to play with

I only have two . I stayed open for one since he leaves by 3:30 and I closed for the other one. It's in y handbook tht on closed days I'm open to taking just ONE child (if applicable/if I choose to) so they must compete for the spot by paying for it first if they want to be the ONE child I watch that day. I wish I had closed entirely but I needed the money ( I don't charge for days I close) this time.

I'm open and all 6 of my dck's will be here. I really wished I would've closed, we went out of town the weekend and didn't make it back until late last night, not to mention that I had got a hold to some kind of stomach virus on Saturday and I really didn't feel my best yesterday

I'm open. I used to take all 10 federal holidays but recently decided to close for 2 weeks in the summer rather than my usual 1 so I reduced my federal holidays to only 5. I kinda traded days in a way from a few spread out to all at once which I think I need more.

I am open and I have a houseful! I'm surprised to read how many of you have a light day; all my parents have to work.

Schools are closed ~ I have a group of kindergarteners who split up at the end of the summer; some had siblings and stayed here, others were the youngest and aged out. They have all been here since they were babies and this is the first time they have all been back together since August.

They are having a blast seeing each other again ~ all in all a good day! But I'm glad it's only one...
