He is REALLY pushing my buttons!
    A very similar situation happened to me yesterday. My second to last DCP picks up at 5:05 and I see my last DCP pulling up. I waited, but no one came to the door. I look at my cameras at 5:08 to see DCP are talking to each other on the sidewalk (they’re related) I said, “Oh look DCK! Your DCP is here!!!” DCK run to the door and look out, very excited to see DCP. I open the door and walked DCK down to DCP. Came back in, shut my door (so they could see they’re the last ones picking up) and clocked out at 5:10.

    • My grandbaby was visiting me yesterday. While I was holding her the DCK's were asking me questions about her.
      One of the DCG's asked me if I was grandbaby's mom.

      I said "No, I am the grandma"

      DCG said "You can't be the grandma."

      I asked "Why not?"

      DCG said "You aren't old. You can only be a grandma if you are old"

      I have a new favorite DC kid.

        I was reading a book to one of my dc kids a few years back. As I read, she snuggled into my lap and absent-mindedly started to rub the skin at the base of my throat. At one point, she sighed, looked into my eyes and very sweetly said, "Old people are so soft!" She WAS one of my favorite dc kids right up to that point! I like your dc kid better!! lol

    • School started this week and was closed for a week and a half for vacation, reopening on Wed. I have 2 pt SAKids, one just started K and the other is in 4th. On Wed the K rode the bus to my house instead of going home with grandma. (I think she missed me)

      Today DCB went looking for Grandma instead of getting on the bus to come to my home.

      Grandma just started working for the school, she works the sidewalk helping kids in and out of cars at the pick-up/drop-off line. So after she found DCB waiting for her, she gave me a text to let me know he was not going to be on the bus. DCG did not know what happened to her brother when she arrived although she did not look that worried either.

      When DCD showed up, I assumed he knew what happened, but found out otherwise that Grandma never let him know.

            If I'm correct you are up to nine and a half hours per child no matter what time they're dropped off. How do you keep track of who needs to be picked up when?

            I open at 6 so if you drop off at 6, you pick up by 3:30....Most do not arrive until 7:30 or after.

        • I am looking at my camera when I see my PITA DCP pull up.

          DCP: *tries to open the door, realizes it’s locked, proceeds to stand on the porch.*
          DCP: *still standing there*
          DCP: *tries door again*

          *Dog hears the click and starts barking*

          Me: *opening the door* Oh hey, sorry DCP! I didn’t hear the doorbell ring.

          DCP: That’s okay, I didn’t ring it!

          Me:

          What I should’ve said: I know. I watched you stand there for 45 seconds before trying a second time to open a locked door.

            GirlMomma Yes you do if you have wireless kind. There is also wired ring that you replace your original doorbell with. In my case I don't have a door bell at that door so I went wireless and have to charge.

            In the winter time it wouldn't hold a charge and no one ever rang it so I just don't charge it, also deleted the app. The button fell off too.

            It came in handy the first week installed, It recorded a dcd telling Dcg that she wouldn't have to eat at DC since she wasn't feeling well. She got sent home at the door but I didn't see the recording until days later when I realized that it may have recorded something.

            🤣

            We have a trained Belgian Malinois and he’s a guard dog. Very protective breed regardless. It wouldn’t be in anyones best interest to walk in, lol. The one time it has happened, our dog was away for training thankfully. I try to keep doors locked though for a few reasons, my dog is one of them.

            MissCait RIGHT! I’ve been locking this door for
            MONTHS. I don’t know why she tries it anymore.

        • I’m closed one day this week. Invoices for a lesser amount were emailed this past weekend.

          Family 1: Pays monthly, has likely forgotten about the closure.

          Families 2/3: Paid the reduced balance.

          Families 4/5: Paid their regular balance, they now have credits on their accounts for overpayment.

          What would you do? Remind Families 1/4/5 of the closure? Or wait until they show up to drop off the morning I’m closed?

          I am (half) kidding

          • New dcf asked for clarification about sending treats for Halloween party. The newsletter was specific (listed the favorite affordable treats and some non food treat ideas). Our group is 6 kids. So they can buy a box of individual goldfish or some play doh and it’s less than $5!

            new dcm asks ‘ohhhhh… you want ME to provide it!’. I was tired and a little snarky so I laughed and said ‘yea. That’s why it says “what to bring” not ‘what I’m providing’ 🙄. She sighs and says okay .

            some people Wish they could just throw money at things. Next time I’ll say $10 each and I’ll buy the treats lol

            • Posting here because it's funny in a ridiculous way lol

              I had a dcm tell me this morning that she has a lot of toys to get rid of. Said she doesn't know what to do with them and someone told her that the daycare center in our town is always looking for toys.

              I just thought it was funny that she mentioned THAT daycare, but didn't think of the one that her child goes to. Ya know...mine

              This is also the same dcm that when the center was doing a fundraiser, she told me "I mean, they have to pay for everything themselves. I'm sure that's a lot of money." Ya think?! Like I don't have to buy everything myself?!
