    Exactly why I don't ask for anything anymore...LOL I had rice krispie treats on the sign up a few years ago and a parent brought in two boxes of rice krispies cereal???? not sure if she thought we would eat them plain or what she thought rice krispies treats were?? Crazy! LOL

    LOL honestly, that’s exactly what I would’ve done had I forgotten to pick up treats 😂

    The kids loved baking last year. It was a fun science experiment!

    We are having an all out fun day on Thursday...(my last day before my vacation). We plan on eating a fun lunch and then having some holiday goodies. Each family was asked to bring a treat to share. I don't care if it's store bought or home made... but I guess I forgot to specify that it needed to be 'ready-to-eat' as one of my DCM's came in this morning with a gift (we did a name exchange) and as she was walking out, says "Oh and here are the treats we were suppose to bring" and hands me a roll of refrigerated cookie dough. Guess we are baking today...

    Do you ever do the dumbest thing and laugh about it later?

    I’ve been wanting (needing) new couch throw pillows. Before our family comes into town for Christmas, I ordered four new pillows and four new pillow covers last week. My intention was to put two pillows in each corner of the couches. I have two couches. Imagine how surprised I was to realize I only ordered FOUR instead of EIGHT when they arrived today. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    My DH is not going to be happy when he finds out I rush ordered four more of them to get here before Christmas

    Back in early summer, I had enrolled a newly turned 2 year old. DCM was expecting in late Oct 2021. They only used 2-3 days of care a week but paid the weekly fee. I was VERY clear about space for new baby being available ONLY if they remained enrolled/paid during maternity leave. Mom kept mentioning they couldn't afford to pay while she wasn't working. I was VERY clear about not affording to "hold" a space for free.
    A month prior to her due date, around mid to late September they pulled DCG because mom was laid off of work. I reiterated my policies AGAIN.
    Guess who texted me last Sunday telling me dates and times that would be needed when DCM returns to work after the holidays?!?
    I didn't respond until this morning. It took me that long to figure out a professional way to say "Bahahahahahah. NO."

    Remember the dcm that chose to go to the REAL PRESCHOOL since her state pay ended and she would have to pay anyway? She stopped by a few weeks ago but I didn't let her in per all parents stay outside for sign in/out. She has text so much lately with things like "dcb misses you" and "y'all were so good ot mykids" and "dcb2 wants to come see yall"...I just don't respond

    Family 4: What days are you closed this month?
    Me: The 23rd is my last open day.

    Family 3 (AGAIN): Do I pay you for next week or are you open?
    Me: Yes, I am open. I am closed after the 23rd.

    Good grief, I wish I had $1 every time I have been asked for some sort of clarification about my off. So far, all but two of my families have asked me about it… one of those two families is out for maternity leave and the second family is my favorite

    DCP calls me yesterday afternoon.

    P: Girlmomma, DCK is getting a flu shot. Do you want a Dr’s note?

    Me: No, why? *literally confused*

    P: Just incase DCK gets a fever from the flu shot.

    Me: Oh! No, that’s not necessary. If DCK gets a fever then DCK will have to go home until DCK is symptom free for 24 hours without medication. 😁

    I got a blood blister on my hand. DS saw it, tried to remove it, then after I said ow, he kissed it to make it better and then gave me advice on how to make it better. He says "Mommy put some milk on it and wash it off" -- I tried, accidentally, but it did not work.
