    I had a parent back me up on one of my petty rules today!!!!

    I have a kid that has been obsessed with ringing the bell lately. Kid was pouting because I met him at the door and wouldn’t allow him to ring the bell today. Parent asked the kid what was wrong. Kid told her. Then I told the parent the rule. The parent got down to the child’s level and reiterated that we have to follow the rules. Kid wasn’t happy but didn’t throw a fit about it anymore. It made me feel good to be respected.

    I am well aware that it’s a silly rule. But if one kids does it, they’ll all want to do it.

    I have 45 minutes before my first kid arrives. Ironically, all three of my tougher children/early arrivals are on vacation this week.

    My house is cleaned and the laundry is caught up so I’m washing our winter coats in hopes I can finally pack them up 😂🤞🏼

    TGIF 🙏🏽

    I noticed that we had low water pressure around midnight last night. Dh and I hopped into his truck to see if we could find a water main break on our road. (It happens here way more frequently than it should!) Sure enough...just past our house. They arrived at 1:30ish this morning to fix it and were still working on it this morning. The water just came back on. Unexpected day off for me! I feel bad for my dc parents who had to scramble for childcare this morning and it'll be an upaid day off for me but still... I've enjoyed the peace and quiet today.

    Yesterday was my last day before I take a few months off to focus on my family and then remodel part of our house into an actual “classroom” space. I said goodbye to one family (DCG3) last week and I will not be inviting her family back when I reopen. But I was so sad to see my last family go (even though I will be having DCG 15mo back when I reopen). But DCM of the 15 mo brought me a “self care” basket full of candles, bath bombs, lip balm, etc and the sweetest card with a note thanking me for helping their daughter grow and learn while she was with me. When she first came to me 3 months ago she had horrible separation anxiety and was barely walking. When her mom came to get her yesterday she kept running back to me. 🥺 she is the sweetest little thing and her family is so thoughtful and considerate. They have actually appreciated me and it felt so nice to be thanked because I have had a couple of other families who have blatantly been rude and hateful to me and tried to walk all over me. It made me excited and anxious to reopen in a few months and continue doing what I love.

    lol I love my 2 five year olds but when they were both out last week, it was like I had died and gone to heaven! No constant bathroom potty talk, no wrestling, running and rough play, no complaining and whining. It was so quiet and calm all day compared to how my typical days have felt like lately, I could actually feel my entire body relax. I'll miss them when they leave but I love the idea of the quieter, calmer days ahead.

    My three that will go to school in the Fall were all absent today...got a GOOD glimpse of the future and I LIKED it......forgot how 5 & 6 year old kids can be...especially when you've had them since birth and their families change, too! The others were littles and have their issues but I didn't hear any snarky-smart mouth going on and all were playing well together!

    Congratulations! Going full time in my shop was the best professional decision I’ve made. Good luck to you this summer and beyond.
