    e.j. I know! It really ticks me off how inconsiderate parents are.

    I put her in a diaper as soon as she arrived. She never told me she had to go all day. At pick up, I told DCD to continue working on potty training at home but until she can tell me that she has to go, she’ll be in a diaper here. He wasn’t happy but for sanitary purposes, I’m not taking that risk.

    Tired of buying diapers? How are they going to feel when they have to pay for your rugs to be cleaned every time their daughter has an accident on them?

    DCG nearly 3 shows up today in big girl panties after leaving here in a diaper Friday. DCD said to me “we are tired of buying diapers” so it’s not even because they think she’s ready. 🙄

    I was very clear I don’t potty train children. DCG is in a diaper. If she tells me she has to go, we’ll go.

    An oldie but a goodie: Just as child who usually stays later goes home early for the day, children who go home early haven't been picked up yet. 🙄🙄🙄

    They did hand it to her, after wiping the kids nose. They did not come yesterday or today. Mom messaged me Tuesday night and said "K said she was in time out, what for?" I wrote 12 different responses and deleted them. I ended up just saying "we are working on doing what is asked right away and worrying about herself" Mom wrote back and said "She said it was for staring" (ok one, if she told you why did you ask?) I said "yes ma'am, we're working on worrying about ourselves" She then wrote back and said "Ok, she's not coming tomorrow" (aww, for shame) She also didn't come today (another dr appointment) No school tomorrow. I don't have the mental energy to think about them this weekend :P They're done, there's no question about that... it's just whether I want to do it at the end of this month or wait until the end of the year. Only real reason is that we're moving into our new home at the end of the month and the finances would help!

    A friend on Facebook posted about how her baby has a 102 fever from teething Someone wrote a comment and said "she's so pretty, even when she's sick." The mom responded "she's NOT sick. She's teething. But yes, she's beautiful."

    Why can't parents just admit when their child is sick?? I would never do this, but I was so tempted to copy and paste the article from the Seattle Children's Hospital about how teething does NOT cause a fever. Some people...

    I had a new 14 month old start with me this week, he’s a cousin to a couple of my DCK’s.

    He’s the sweetest little baby… but boy am I ready for him to get adjusted. 😅

    She's 8.

    I've been ignoring their request hoping they'll get the hint. But, nope. SIL just sent a message asking if there's a day that the GIRLS (as in BOTH of my nieces) can come over. The other one is 11.

    This is the 3rd time they've asked. They obviously do not get the hint.

    Fair is fair... DH feels the same. Remember, the crazy is on my side of the family. It is my job to keep it from messing with his happiness.

    So you never got the paperwork returned and they sent the child with a runny nose? Don’t answer the door tomorrow, instruct the people you’re staying with not to either.

    If paperwork isn’t returned tomorrow, I’d term because it’s obvious they don’t want to follow the illness policies. If DCG has a runny nose, send her home.

    Send paperwork home Thursday, due Monday.
    Paperwork did not get turned in today. (was not in folder or anywhere in backpack unless they kid it from me)
    Sent message "paperwork was due today, please hand to Miss ___ at drop off"
    Reply message "in backpack"

    This parent thinks she's in charge. I was going to keep them until the end of the year (for financial reasons) but I just don't think I can do it anymore
    The paperwork sent home was a re-fresh of our sickness policy (made specifically for this family, but was sent home with everyone)
    I ended up copy/pasting my previous message stating to hand it personally this morning. They did not respond. They did however hand it to my co-teacher this morning. After wiping off their 4yr old's booger covered face then shoving a hand full of extra tissues in her coat pocket...
    I was going to tell parents she was not allowed tomorrow due to her having a runny nose/sneezing all day, but she isn't supposed to be coming tomorrow because of a doctors appointment. The appointment is at 8. Class starts at 8:30. My contract clearly states that there is no drop off times other than 8:30. I'm trying to decide if I should message mom tonight and remind her... again.... like I have to do with everything...
    We normally put up a sign after drop off that says "class is in session, please do not knock or ring bell" but we are currently staying in a friends basement until we can move into our new house next month. If they come, we will not even be upstairs. However I don't want someone to come and bother the people we are staying with...
    So the question lies... Send a reminder.... or send a termination letter... decisions decisions...
