    Wow, the forum has become hard to find with google. Edge was being a PITA so I had to use Chrome. It took me forever to find you guys.

    I had a new dcg start a few months ago, and the dcm personal life has some drama.

    I've got another dcm that is a bit gossipy and feels the need to tell me everything (that she knows anyway) that goes on in this other dcm life. To the point that it feels she's talking bad about her and tries to make me feel like I shouldn't have her as a client.

    I don't get involved in my dcf personal life and quite frankly, I do not care about their personal lives. As long as they follow my policies and pay me, we're all good 😎

    Kid got called in sick with a stomach bug. Her mom messages me that afternoon that they told another family about us... while they were playing at the park.
    Great thought I guess, but why would you keep your kid home sick, then take them to a park to play with a bunch of other kids?!? (And I know she was actually sick, because another kid came down with it the next day)

    I agree with you, you would think that it wouldn't be so dead on at this age but I had a DCB that didn't to his sister and DD when they were three. Once DCB started school I caught Dcg continue to bully DD to the point I had to do a hard on the spot term.
    When I tried to explain to dcb5.5 that what he did was wrong he then would claim the girls were bullying him when they didn't do what he wanted, which Ironically his way to continue to bully and control them.

    After they left I have never had trouble with bullying again.

    BTW dcm tried to bully me, when I charged her for being late she said " this can not happen again" and when I termed she said "I disappointed in you" so you can guess where they got it from.

    Unfortunately Dcg and DD are in the same class this year, DD says she is nice but knowing that Dcg is prone to bullying I sent a message to the teacher and said " Dcg and DD have a past that I can not discuss due to privacy but I ask that they are not left alone." She gave me her word that she would keep an eye on them. (DD has selective mutism and would not necessarily be able to tell anybody that Dcg was bullying her)

    It's hard to believe that bullying could start so young. I know they probably don't understand how their words hurt, but I know they know they aren't supposed to say mean things. I'll catch them whispering and then acting super guilty when I catch them.

    Either this is the norm, or I've got a mean group of boys.

    I’m 100% convinced dcbaby is held every waking minute at home. She is NOT ok with being put down to play. Of course I do it anyway….when I put her on her tummy for tummy time, she is royally pi$$ed! The crying gets old. 😑

    Her second test is in and it is negative!!! But wait there is more... DCM texts and DCD has covid. She wants to know if the kids can come or not. So now I am waiting to find out if the dc kids have covid.

    Lol it wasn't her doctor, it was one of the partners that I prefer not to see. Her doctor was not in.

    Odd her regular doctor can't be more of use. I'd be looking for another doc.

    Last Monday my daughter came home from school with a cough and she was sneezing. The night before she'd only slept about 4 hours.

    Cuz of the covid rules I called her in sick the night before.

    The next day I received a call from the school office, telling me I needed to talk to the doctor before she could return. I called the doctor's office and they agreed with me a cold or allergies. She had only coughed a few times the night before. And other than a stuffy nose she was back to herself after a good night sleep.

    The school wanted it in writing, but the doctor's office because of the legalities said they would not put it in writing, which I understood.

    Currently around here it is rare to get a same day appointment. I found one appointment at 4:00 but that wasn't enough time to get it to the lab that day. The local pharmacy had a 2:00 so I grabbed it.

    Now this is where the fun begins. The website said it 2 to 5 days, which I I didn't think anything of it because people have had us back the next day, so I figured she would be back in school on Thursday.
    After she takes the test the pharmacist says 2 to 7 days and that the lab already picked up that day. When I asked when does the lab get picked up she says it varies.

    On Thursday I call to see what the hold up is, I am told that most take 3 to 4 days and I should know by Saturday and that the lab is not in our state but in NJ.

    I contact the online portal and I am now being told that it may take longer with no estimate.

    My daughter who is symptom free, can't go to school in the morning because we don't have the results back yet. I have checked around and I choose the one place that sends out of state.

    Tommorow she has a second appointment at an urgent care for another test, they were booked the day I tried to get her first test. Dh got tested with them before so I know what lab they use.

    I would make changes if you could. My aunt used to run her own daycare and she said the one thing she wish she would have done differently is have everyone bring a sack lunch. Is that an option?

    I remember a time when littering was much worse. People would literally though out bags of trash as they were driving.

    GirlMomma unfortunately we don't have that type of policy in place just that we provide breakfast lunch and snack and that if they have an allergy or sensitivity that we need a doctors note

    Is there anything in your policies saying you won’t provide special diet foods? I don’t provide special diet foods, not even for one child. I’ve learned they’d all expect it.

    I also have a new child with a dairy allergy. It’s okay right now because the child is still on baby food. I honestly have no idea what I’m going to feed them when they start solids. There is way more with this child than I could begin to explain.
