  • I started a new toddler on my first day reopened. Long story, I had not heard from them for a month and they contacted again while I was on vacation, they knew I was on vacation, so we had to complete paperwork this morning. My notes have two different drop off time and I wasn't sure what time to expect them until this morning. (I didn't want to explain that I forgot, lol not while on vacation.)

    I forgot to temp the kids this morning, just totally slipped my mind.

    School started yesterday and I was able to take her to school. She was given a bus route but they had too many drivers either quit or start the year off quarantine, we had to scramble to find a way to get DD to and from school this week. (They had an in person bus driver meeting last week and the drivers got exposed)

    ​​​​​​At the last minute the health department made masks mandatory in the elementary, so DD is back to wearing mask all day.

    • No in-person licensing visits until further notice due to covid.....walmart just closed for two days to clean due to covid......my dcb4's annual evaluation(autism) was cancelled as no one is performing anything deemed 'not necessary'........many deaths recently.....schools that said they would not close no matter what are closing........I know some things can be fabricated......but I also feel this smothering me personally and professionally.

      • I am sad, but relieved, today as next weeks big event that brought in lots of people (family/friends) has been cancelled....I can now use my days off to rejuvenate, visit with my new great-niece and cookout/chillout, get my daycare ready for the upcoming year.....As sad as I am about not having this annual event that was going on when I was a teen, I would have worried about that many people being together as our county is a hotspot for covid currently. Even walmart closed the past two days to clean as so many employees have covid....walmart NEVER closes! There is usually 400 people from many states that come in and this is the second year we have cancelled....the covid numbers were double this year from last year. So the positive thing is I have days off that I can do as I please with!

              I am definitely counting down until the long weekend. I take Friday and Monday off for both Labor Day and Memorial so it's a 4 day weekend for me!

              No big plans but there is always lots to do!

              I'd like to get my whole daycare setup re-arranged as I am starting this year with ALL 12 spaces filled with girls so I want put away some of the blocks (we don't need 5 different block options) and other things the boys loved but the girls paid no attention to and bring out more of the baby doll center stuff and the kitchen stuff. I had some of it out but not alot as I was more boy heavy this last year and they weren't interested in alot of that stuff unless you counted trying make a dolly do ninja stuff and turning the high chair upside down so it could be a mountain where the dragon lived. lol!

              Many of the girls I have had over the last few years were very tom boyish but this new batch is all diva/princess so ....yeah... say a prayer for me and if I don't check in every few days I would hope someone will come looking for me!

                Woo-hoo! 🥳 enjoy your time off!

                I’ll come looking! I know all about the diva drama 🥴 My oldest is all girl. She’s into cheerleading, anything sparkly, and wants the high heeled shoes (why is that even an option for kids these days?!) and dresses. I have to wake her up early because spends most of the morning primping in the mirror. My youngest on the other hand just turned 2 on Friday and for her birthday she got Nerf guns, dinosaurs, trucks and blocks 😂

                I always thought I wanted a boy of my own. But after having SIX boys all summer… I’m not built for it

                I have two new girls starting today and it’s been very quiet and chill today. It’s so refreshing!!!

                  • Rain, Rain and more rain....my son was coming home around 9 last night and witnessed an electric car hit some water and flipped three times up a hill finally stopping...he called 911 and the guy was walking around but was clearly addled he said.....scary as it was so dark and dreary. Praying for all those hit harder than this from this hurricane... expecting rain all day here with schools closed so I'm closed too....hope all stay safe today!

                          • Hello everyone. I haven't been here in quite a while. I created my account at this new forum and was surprised that my name was still available as a username, 😁

                            I probably won't be here very much because the Covid pandemic has made some changes to my life plans, but this is still a great place for advice about child care.

                            Between the pandemic, and the floods, fires and hurricanes we've been getting, I hope everyone here is still doing ok. No natural disasters in my area, just Covid, but I've been taking proper precautions and have just recently gotten vaccinated so life here is starting to return to normal.

                            Good timing to make the forum mobile friendly because one big change is my computer time. I used to spend hours every day on my computer. Now I'm on it a couple hours a week. I do most of my internet stuff from my cell.

                            They are also our future.

                              Nice to see you’re still here, and others. Good to know you’re still alive and kicking. 😆
