Daycare Drama: Part II

Good morning, lovelies. 

First of all, let me thank everyone for their advice and support regarding our current daycare situation. The way you  stood up for me was amazing. In fact, it was even a little overwhelming in a good way. I just love and appreciate my loyals {as AP would say} more than anything!

So are you ready for an update?

Let's start with J's status:

It seemed to be a consesus that Baby J needs a bigger nipple flow on his bottles. So? We've done just that. And? It seems to have helped. Something so simple that I truly wouldn't have thought of!

Also, I have asked daycare to feed him twice a day. I think a big part of his eating issues was that the little guy just wanted him some food! 

Besides becoming a 6 month old, J is teething hardcore causing his eating and sleeping habits to change almost every day right now. The new nipple and some "real" food have already helped substantially.

Now, let's move on to what became the bigger issue here....our actual daycare:

Like I said last week, I love this daycare and his teachers. At least, I did until we had this huge debacle. Now? I wasn't so sure. Actually, I've been torn up over the entire situation all weekend. 

My husband as well as some of you suggested I go in and kill them...with kindess.

I'm not gonna lie. I hated this idea on Friday. Kindess you say? They don't deserve my kindness after the way they treated me Friday morning! But then I remembered that it's not about me. It's about J. 

So, I swallowed my pride and went in with a smile plastered to my face. And? Everything went smoothly. I noticed Ms. G still didn't want to talk to me. But, Ms. E {the one I really like anyway} has gotten over the situation. 

When I walked in with J yesterday, she exclaimed "Oh there's my boyfriend!" Just her saying that made me feel better. Honestly? They can be mad at me all they want as long as they still love my little one.

I will note that only the Director has fed Baby J this week. She told me she would personally make sure he ate and that's exactly what she's done. I'm impressed. While I haven't ruled out putting our names on a couple of waiting lists, I do feel comfortable leaving J in their care once again. 

I'm sure over the next few years I'll run into other issues at daycare. I'll come to y'all to vent and I hope you'll still be here to support me. Being a mom isn't easy, that's why I have you!

So again, THANKS to all of you who reached out to give me your two cents. It's just what I needed!!

  2. I was kicking myself after switching nipples (and don't be afraid to switch again soon if you need to) because I felt like such a bad mom. How did I not think of that!?

    But we're all doing the best we can with this little thing we call parenting!

    So glad the daycare issue is better!

  3. Oh my goodness. I just got caught up on all this daycare drama! Wow. I'm glad things are beginning to work themselves out. I absolutely cannot imagine what you were feeling like. I also want to let you know that Ethan switched from level 2 to level 3 really quickly. I hope everything else gets straightened out soon!
