Good News!

I got a good news!...a mom called with two kids today! She's a single parent but extremely outgoing. She's a manage of Aaron Brother's Frame store. She will have absolutely terrible! So what else is new with my daycare parents? :)

It will be very difficult for me, but I will do what I have to do. She is on the subsidized program so it will be guaranteed payments once a month. She has a boy that's 4 years old and a little girl that's 2 years old. I have no problem with their ages. It's her work schedule the will be an adjustment. She will have late hours as well. It will be more 15 hour days, but I will have to get adjusted.

I have very mixed feelings about it. I am excited in that it will assist my budget greatly! Their ages are perfect. They are on an assistance program so payment will be more reliable. I think the only thing that I am fairly uncomfortable with are the hours. However, it's not like I am not accustomed to them already.

On the nights that I will have 4 or 5 kids for late night, I think I will have them downstairs rather than upstairs. It will just be easier and more space. At about 8:00 pm, I will pop in a movie and let them lay down with their blankets til their parents arrive.

I am much more happy than I am concerned about the hours. :). I have fellow childcare provider that we brainstorm together and support each other. I will talk to her as well, just to keep my focus. I'm quite excited actually :).
