This and That

I had the hardest time getting out of bed this morning! I absolutely didn't want to come to work. It doesn't help that Coworker is still not here this morning, though she has 15 minutes to make an appearance before we are scheduled to start. Everytime my alarm went off, I whined to Russ. He told me that I should call in and say that I'm too cute to work.

I had an interview with a woman who has a home daycare last night. I liked her a lot, but her home isn't in a very good area of town. It's only 5 to 10 minutes from my work, but my work is in downtown and the residential areas down there aren't the greatest. But, her home was clean and she seemed to be very nice. She's only been doing this since August and that is concerning to me. She does have a few kids that are grown and an adopted 3 year old at home. I just don't know what to do. I'm going to ask around some more and see if I can't find someone in a better area. But, her kid, B.J., was hilarious. This is a conversation we had last night:

B.J.: "Hey, where's your baby at?"

Me: "She's in my belly."

B.J.: *look of shock* "Did you eat her last year?"

Kids are so funny. You could keep looking for daycare but keep that lady in mind. Good luck

As an old foster mom, make sure your provider has current CPR, has had a recent background check run on her and that she is licensed with the state! If they are licensed alot of times that means they are licensed to be respite providers for CPS. Be very picky and chosey. If you have any bad feelings then go with your gutt instinct! You should be able to look on your states Department of Family & Protective Services and search for childcare.

Sorry you had to go to work today.

I just wanted to tell you that you that there should be an agency in your area that you can call and get a listing of all home daycare providers and childcare centers in your area.

Before I moved back to Mich. I was an Assistant Dr. at a childcare center and I know where I lived there were agencies to help new parents or new people to the area find 'good' child care.

If you need any more help let me know. I maybe able to find a couple of good resources for you in your area.

And I loved Russ' comment about calling in "cute" :-)
