      My daughter started summer school camp today. She enjoyed it. I'm going to miss her while she's there but this will keep her and school age DCB separated for at least the mornings.
      Part of me regrets wanting to send her because I will never get this time back with her and I'd rather have her here than there but when those two to get together it's hard to keep control of the group. I know it's mainly him because when he's not here she's fine but he's a paycheck. I hate that I have to lose this time with her.

        Not today but yesterday, I took my three year old to get his eyes checked. Doctor says he has really bad eyes even for an adult. He is getting glasses.

            I enrolled two newborns to replace the big kids that moved on yesterday. I am looking forward to a fast paced, but fun year ahead.

              I feel sorry sometimes for those people but then again I don’t.

              My stepmom had mental health issues, one of them being a kleptomaniac. My bio dad has 5 kids. She was the manager of the shoe department in Kmart. I remember that she would have is swap new shoes and put our old ones in the box and called it “an even exchange.” I was a kid and didn’t know any better until years later. I still feel guilty for it even though I was 7/8 at the time.

              I worked in the shoe dept and jewelry of a department store through high school and we were trained to look away and let it go as long as they were not high end dress shoes. The owners take was that if they were swapping shoes to send their kids to school or go to work in, it was worth the stores investment to support them in the long run. They had a similar policy on those black or tan work pants and white dress shirts that every employer in the service industry used to require. "First sets on us, then we have customers for life." Of course, they would go after repeat offenders but being a small town, we already knew who needed the hands up and who was just being a jerk. Don't feel guilty, someone knew and let her. I can just about guarantee it.

              Today I am feeling productive. I've gotten a lot of loose ends taken care of over this last week, both personal and business so I am feeling useful and productive.
              Now I just need to make it through today and tomorrow and I am off until 7/12 Yay!

                Today was the first day without the annoying kid. It was less stressful and quieter.

                  It usually is, after getting rid of the stressful child/parent

                  Cat Herder Thank you! We’re going up to Lake Michigan for a few days. I am hoping the rain breaks up enough for us to get out.

                Still raining. At least we have power, internet and can run water, today. That is helpful.

                The playroom has been blissfully happy and self-led since my gatekeeper/drill sergeant DCK and PITA DCM moved on a couple weeks ago. I have completely redone the room, got rid of the last few pieces of bulky adult furniture, added some high shelves and cleared out all the outdated/unused pre-made curriculum paper and bulletin board sets.

                I wanted to have a bon fire with it, Chief said no, so to the women's/children's shelter it all went. 15 bankers boxes full. All in sets of 3-5 kits, because they are sold in sets of 6 or 12 and I keep a mixed age group of 6. I don't like repeats and the ages of kids rarely line back up with left over crafts from previous years. I am going to stop storing it at all going forward. Or so I am telling myself, today.

                I need to change my mindset to seeing art supplies and crafts the same way I see food waste. Plan it, buy it, offer it, toss/donate what's left, write it off. It is already paid for, anyway, so is not an actual loss. It is all in my head. I am creating work for myself in sorting, storing, cleaning and thinking about it.

                    2’s are by far the worst age to have until they can start communicating better, which is usually 2 1/2.
