    I feel like it's diet. I have a group of kiddos right now that are all regular poopers with firm consistent poo. Then I have that one child that I know eats nothing but processed junk food and way too much candy and the poop is horrid. It's runny most times and happens multiple times a day and the smell....Ahgg!!

    This group of kids i have, are always poopy. They all poop multiple times a day. What is going on with their stomachs. Ive never had a group like this. Even my own kids, after infancy, it was once a day. My house smells all the time.

    I don’t know what it is about this week but I am more than ready for DCK4.99 to age out. I just have two more weeks.

    DCK: *refused to eat breakfast this morning* Ms. GirlMomma, I’m hungry! Can I have a snack?
    Me: No, lunch is in 45 minutes. Make sure you eat breakfast tomorrow morning so you stay full until lunch.

    10 mins later…

    DCK: Ms. GirlMomma, I’m cold!
    Me: Do a few jumping jacks to get your blood pumping. *Checks thermostat to see it’s set two degrees higher than normal and DCK never complains* 🤦‍♀️

    It’s storming today so we are stuck inside.

    Is it just me or is anyone else ready for their school age students to return to school? Today's been a little rough our administrator had to cook because our director that usually cooks was off today. We've got a girl whose in college but is working here during the summer as the schoolage teacher and she's let them run wild and they won't listen to us or her, disrespectful etc. Maybe tomorrow will be better

    One-year-old wakes up from nap bawling almost every day. No sounds of stirring, babbling, nothing. Just LOUD BAWLING. 😖

    It has been a true MONDAY and I am only half way through my day.
    yesterday DCM texts and asks if she can bring DCB4mo at 8:30 instead of 10 due to a meeting and she will pick up at 2:30 instead of 5:30 for his dr appt. I’m like yes of course! That means it won’t be a big interruption to my morning since everyone else comes at 8-8:30 and he’s the last to be picked up so I’ll be off an hour and a half early!
    No. He has been screaming non stop this morning and will not let me put him down. He did not want to eat (which is weird because he will always eat) and he kept drawing his legs up. I did everything I could think of to try to help his belly but nothing was working. Finally at lunch time I texted DCM. She is now coming to get him ASAP. She said she ate some food last night that really upset her stomach and since he is BF she thinks he might be dealing with it too. He is usually a very laid back baby. Hardly cries and just enjoys watching the older kids play. He honestly had me terrified that something happened before drop off and I would get blamed, it was THAT out of character for him.
    Then 2 of my 3 DCG did not want to come today and threw fits at drop off (one is new so understandable and the other just came back from a vacation so she was with mom and dad for 7 days straight). I had rotated some new toys in over the weekend so thankfully the excitement of new toys calmed them down.
    my DS10mo has been getting 4 teeth in at once so he wants to be held non stop and he won’t eat and won’t sleep.
    Thank goodness it’s nap time. I got all 3 girls down and DCB4mo is napping too. Im exhausted.

    I had at least 2 parents show up when I was closed 2 weeks ago. I was gone, so one messaged me saying she forgot and the other one didn't have a clue I was closed - even after several reminders. I guess I know who reads my messages haha!

    And yesterday, a dcp told me they might be here today, might not. Ummm, no because daycare is closed. They also forgot I'm closed one day next week and said she forgot to ask for the day off. "Guess I should pay closer attention to the newsletters" she said. Good idea 👍

    Did they come to your house and try to drop off so you had to actually talk to them?
    You could try sending a group text the night before a closure and remind everyone of the day off or you could simply post a sign on your daycare entry door that reads "CLOSED TODAY Back on xx. day" so that IF a parent did come to your door, they can read the notice and not have to engage in awkward conversation with you.

    I had told a DCM I would be closed one day and she responded with "I will let you know". Um what? Let me know what?

    It doesn't matter how many reminders I give, someone always "forgets" about a closure...then they almost always make a comment that theyll "figure it out" or they don't know what they're gonna do. It's always so awkward!

    Poor kid! What are his parents thinking? It's 91 with a dew point of 63 here - feel like temp is 101. I can't imagine being dressed the way that child is today. Although I have to say...my dd is probably wearing a sweatshirt over her work uniform despite today's temps. She's always cold! Hopefully your dcb is more like my dd! ;-)

    It's a high of 93 today, and dcb is in long jeans, boots, and a long sleeve shirt
