I hear you. I canceled circle time (aka: stop touching me time) and free art (aka: dump, smear, tear, toss and pour center) for the day. At least the big kids were easily plied with food, playground time and crashed. They were so overtired.

The diaper rashes are atrocious, though. None of the infants can get comfortable enough to rest well like that.

Nice! My niece is a little over tired and cranky but thatís kind of her personality. Took a little longer to fall asleep than normal but nothing out of the ordinary has happened yet. Hoping they sleep till snack but not holding my breath.

I have one. BARKING in lue of nap today because it got him candy last night when he was dressed as a dog.
I have one who picked up her plate. Held it out to her side. And dumped it on the floor. Then dropped it in the mess.
I have one who has gas so bad I think the toxic waste squad may stop by.
One who just keeps falling asleep.
And two who "can't hear me" today.

I pre-warned everyone and "dared" them to try and slip one past me.

I normally close on Halloween because it's my birthday but this year I stayed open and told every family I had that the behavior of the kids/parents over this holiday would dictate the number of days I was closed and the activities over the next couple holidays.

So I basically bribed them (the parents) all to behave or I'd have to take an extra long Christmas vacation with no compromise or care as to what their family's care needs are.

So far, so good.
No one is sick, tired or acting out.

Omg, barking? That would drive me insane! My sympathies to you for having to deal with all that nonsense today!

Lucky you

I have one child who says his stomach hurts and he thinks he's going to puke. Course this only happens when it's time to clean up, share, etc. Another had an accident on his cot at naps (never happens with him) and is constantly pouting he couldn't bring his candy to show everyone, and a third has a meltdown at least every 30 minutes. That's all without school agers and with one absence. Jeez

My crankiest one is the youngest one (11 months) who didnít get to go trick or treating and instead was in urgent care last night. Iím blaming the crankiness on the meds they gave him to treat his skin infection that occurred in a cut he got this weekend at home.

Snack time in 1 minute and my always troubled child is still asleep. Iím scoring this as a day after Halloween win.

The one I expected mayhem from is out sick. The others have been super chilled. This is the best Halloween Hangover Day I've had!

My parents are all too health conscious- except for one. There's always that one.

I spent Halloween night in the ER with my dd. It took them 8 hours to diagnose her with pneumonia. Got to bed at 3:30 this morning and got up at 5:45 to get ready for my first dc kid. I was totally dreading today and the kids' Trick-or Treat hangovers. I lucked out, though. The kids were incredibly well behaved. I won't rub it in. Just had to share my post-Halloween good luck. If I had had to deal with the crud some of you had to deal with today, I think I'd be looking at my own Nov 1st closing in 2018! The barking kid would have sent me over the edge even if I had had a good night's sleep!
