Default OMG! I Am So Embarrassed!!!!

my licensor came today, with HER boss, and they were here for an hour and a half, just to discuss an ECERS assessment i had.

i only had two kids today. easy right?

WRONG!

they were good for most of the time, but towards the end, the 2 1/2 yr old had had enough. he started ripping throught the playroom like a tornado, throwing everything all over, and completely destroying my house. i was right on top of him, and even tried to put him in time out, (which ive NEVER done before-i never had to with him) but he wouldn't sit. he has NEVER EVER acted like that, i was so shocked, and really didnt know what to do.

it takes alot to fluster me, and get me upset, so i wasnt mad, but i was totally embarrassed, like they were gonna think i didnt know what i was doing.

he got so crazy, that they actually left.

i can only imagine what they were saying on the car ride back to the office!!!

soon as they left he calmed right down and looked at me with his puppy dog eyes and said "wuv you minna" (he cant say my name) that little stinker.

someone please tell me you have had this happen before.....

LOL! I'm suree you were fine. Most adults, and especially licensors, understand how the dynamics of adding a strange adult to the mix can get the little ones going! You have an AWESOME program, I'm sure they realize you ROCK!

Good job! I'm sure your dcb was just vying for your attention. An hour and a half is kinda ridiculous imho, but I understand they need to do their job. That being said, I'm sure if you had mentioned that you needed to take care of something quick they would have been fine with it.

My licensor told me she was coming over a few days ago, but wasn't sure when, to look at my new windows so that they were up to code. Well, she showed up as I was making lunch (grilled cheese sandwiches on the griddle). I asked her kindly if she could do it without me as I didn't want to leave a griddle unattended or turn it off and delay lunch. She had absolutely no problem with it!

These people get it. Don't be too embarrassed.

You know you have the "stink eye" down, when the child acts up, parent tries to correct and child continues. YOU give them the "look", and they stop, without you saying a word! I've had it happen.

Congrats on a great score! And, as others have said, don't worry about it, I'm sure they are used to WAYYY worse!

I wouldn't advise giving a toddler a dirty look. Not only is it developmentally inappropriate, it will give them something inappropriate to model at times when you least want it to occur.

I do ECCERS and CDA observations and I've been a provider myself before working for an R&R. I EXPECT kids will act up. I'm a strager and I occupy their provider's time. I've seen it all. I wish they'd let you know they too see it all. Providers feel much more comfortable when you tell them to expect unusual behavior.
