My phone dings and zings all day and all night . Emails here, notifications there, alarms and reminders here and text there. Then there is that one text that comes in that makes you say ” well now.. thats gonna change my day. ” Today Ms Dallas called in. Her daughter was sick and needed her. That is why we do what we do , right ? So we can put our family first. That is what started my career in family childcare . I am glad that I can give Ms Dallas that opportunity to be a mom to her girls when they need her. This rarely ever happens so when it does we take a deep breath and say ” We’ve got this. ” Before Dallas came along Randy and I did it alone all the time. We are still legal and in ratio with 1:8 . Having Ms Dallas here just makes it a lot easier and less chaotic.
We played, we did circle time and read a book called ” I Love you Stinky Face.” Children many times think that our love is based on their behavior. Even when your child is making bad choices make sure you correct in a way that they understand that you still love them. Unconditional love is a gift that we take for granted.
We colored. We did journals. We did our self portrait for the month. We ate a yummy lunch. We still had time to fill.
Luckily your child attends somewhere that turning on a cartoon is a VERY last option. We have skills. The KIDDOS had a sing a long concert and story time in the living room.
We survived. Did we miss Dallas ? Yes ! But can we still do it on our own ? Yes ! Is it nap time yet ?
