    I have one opening which I've had for a little while and another opening in two weeks.....due to state regs they need to be over age 2......not had much luck as families do not want to pay, follow the policy/contract, no-show, etc. It will come but taking it's time. I have two families I would love to enroll but the ages do not work!
    I have a pt opening that I am trying to fill. I got a call today the woman said that she had called me recently and discussed a PT spot, I do not remember talking to her but played it as I did. She asked if it was still available or if any more days had opened up. I confirmed that it was still available but that no other days had come available either. She then asked if my openings will change once the state ratio changes. (Ratio would go from 6 to 7 kids for home daycares)

    LOL got to love the news reporting half of the story, it is not automatic across the border. I had to explain to her that I have to apply for the new ratio and then wait for the approval. That I had applied (which I wish I had not told her) but it takes a couple of weeks to a month to find out. She says so your not advertising that spot then? Nope, nor am I trying to fill it before I have it.

    I then sent her to my website to complete my contact us form. I just looked the form over, she has an infant. The additional child is for ages 30 months and up, not for infants.

    Ex Dcd contact me yesterday, him and ex Dcm both work for the school and the boys attended 2 days a week.

    They pulled their boys at the end of school year, they had paid the holding fee for the baby over winter but I didn't not to pay the holding feet over the summer for both boys. Dcm told me that they found family to take care of the boys next school year.

    He was requesting care for both boys but for only one day. I have taken one other family one day a week and it just happens to be her cousin kids.

    ​​​​​​Older dcb was great and transitioned well when they pulled him during dcm maternity leave. The baby on the other hand was big baby (compared to recent others) and took forever to bottle feed plus he spit up half of it. So I have no intentions on taking him until he is off his bottle.

    So I decided to respond to ex dcd and told him that I only had space for dcb but not for the baby until February. (A month after the baby b'day ) I haven't told him that my new starting rate is higher by $10.

    Doing contracted hours was one of the best decisions ever!
    DCB4mo is usually here from 10am until 5:30 but DCM asked last week if we could do 8:30-3:30 today. He’s my last pickup so I said “YES!!”
    I was excited for an early day off (two days in a row because he isn’t here on Fridays!) and then DCM of DCG1.5 texts that she had a meeting pop up and ask if she can get DCG at 4:45 today. I said “Yep! But don’t forget that late fee of $1/min applies.” She said “starting at 4?” I said “yes, that’s what the hours are on the contract”
    she said “got it, thanks.” Lol so either she will find someone else to pick up (her and dcd are the only ones listed on the forms) or I will be making $50 extra today (because I’m sure she won’t be off the property before 4:50)! 🤣
    and I don’t feel bad at all because I explained before enrollment and I told her she needed to make sure she had 2 resources for backup. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    New baby (10.5m) did better yesterday. She refused the first bottle and napped instead. Once she woke she took the bottle without issue. She had a great rest of the day. 🙂
    She may end up being a great new friend.

    It was raining on and off all morning, moments before dcm arrives it starts downpours, heavy which was just before lunch. After lunch it clears up and we can finally get outside.

    you did the right thing; until the parent is inconvenienced, nothing will change! Good for you!

    Just sent new baby home. She refused the bottle and didn't nap well. What happened to the easy babies I use to get?

    Thanks, y'all! All went well....dh is NOT a traveler but did well despite his dislike of riding in a car for so long....I do the driving as I am a horrible car-sick person if I'm the rider, plus I like to get where I'm going and not waste time.....the interstate is a pinball machine to me or so that's what my brother tells me. LOL

    DCG comes in this morning with clips in her hair to hold back her bangs. DS comes into the room, stops, and looks at dcg. He then says DCG you are pretty and gives her a hug.

    "Of course I hesitate to say an easy week, as every time I have several kids out, the ones that are here tend to become attention seekers and act very needy the whole time."

    They expand to fill up the space 😄
