  • Welp - I am glad I didn’t listen to DH. I emailed the first family I mentioned above about their open invoice for this week. The family claims to be unaware of the invoice. We literally discussed it before they left

      It helped tremendously. Our clients now are great at paying and we have no problems

      • Where do I begin?

        I had a DCP show up late, but I stuck to my policies and charged for it. DCP overpaid and said keep it.

        I had a DCP ASK ME specific health questions about their child (that are red flags if not looked at soon) only to then tell me “I’m not too worried about it.” SO WHY ASK ME?!?

        I had another kid show up in PJ’s - first offender, DCM just had a baby so dad dropped off. I chose my battles with this one and changed the kid then discussed it at pick up with DCD.

        • School age daycare boy come in with all of his winter gear and his backpack. When it was time to go to the bus he up didn't not to put any of his stuff on. So for the next 10 to 15 minutes I had to listen to him whining that he's cold. 2 minutes before bus I had asked him to get his mask out, the bus arrived and he was still refusing. He's required to wear a mask on the bus, it's not my rule.

            What a fun way to start your morning,,,,not! The last time I agreed to take a school aged kid who needed to catch his bus at my house, I almost instantly regretted it. By the time winter hit, I was kicking myself and saying, "Never again!" That was way before Covid hit. I give you tons of credit for dealing with it. Hopefully your day has improved now that he took his attitude to school with him. :-)

            I no longer take school age kids. The older kids wore me out wayyyyy more than six 2YO kids ever could. Bless you for taking them! Lol

            The kid is not that bad as far as kids go (I have had worse SA kids) but I am so over him, his sister will be five and starting K in the fall, then I will be done. My dd will be devasted when they leave though so I got to find a way to prepare her without her telling them that they will be leaving.

            Ugh! I am so over all of this! There is no clear direction/guidance and it seems no one really knows what they should or shouldn't be doing.
            I mean yes, there is the obvious stay home/quarantine if you have symptoms etc but truth be told, any one of us feeling fine/asymptomatic could be spreading this all over the place without knowing it. I am definitely starting to lean towards it being time to let this whole thing ride. I mean our immune systems are screwed and any immunity to anything that we have left is virtually worthless (I've had DCP's that have had HFM recently..ADULTS! lol!) so I think it's time our bodies are allowed to start building back immunity. Heck with this crazy useless and nonsense in regard to Build Back Better and lets' start building immune systems again!

            I'm tired of the news saying cases are rising and it's going to be a horrible wave when it peaks just to say the next day that this new variant is more spreadable but less dangerous so it's all good. Im tired of hearing the unvaccinated people are selfish and are the problem when SCIENTIFICALLY this is not true at all.
            I'm tired of big Hollywood stars continuing to chastise and ridicule those that think, behave or act differently than they do....NEW FLASH, we DO think, act and behave differently because my bank balance doesn't have 6+ zeros and my house only has 3 bedrooms verses 13.

            Annalee In your situation, I would definitely ask DCM about her being sick though just so you know to watch out for symptoms or to test if necessary.
            Im not sure what that changes for you as far as quarantine and closure but hopefully, your state is just allowing you all to make your own decisions in regards to this. Seems if you leave the house, you are exposed so how is anyone suppose to know what to do?

            It is 5 quarantine days and 5 with mask here, but providers are allowed to do as they see fit for each situation. Being vaccinated makes the difference for me because I technically am open even if EVERYONE is quarantining. Make sense? I now have 6 kids since Thanksgiving that have had covid so there is a 90 day 'grace period' for those kids barring symptoms arising. But basically, best practice is whatever you do with what information you have. I am confident that many clients have been less than honest but I can only control what I can control. and yes I am waiting for pickup to ask dcm about her sickness as I want to see her face

              Annalee when you say vaccinated, are you referring to the install two shots or the booster too?

              Two shots and the booster! Nothing else is considered FULLY vaccinated here!

              FYI vaccination was as much for my mental health as my physical health.

          • Dcg is driving me nuts, one day she is screaming in hunger at the bus stop (an hour early) that I have to feed her the moment we return, the next day she refuses the bottle and Wants to nap instead, Today she refused the bottle after two oz, cried when I laid her down, pooped within 20 minutes so I had to change and she refused to go down again.
