ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

And so the issues begin...

Have you seen the email forward that's going around called "Parenting isn't for everyone?" I expected to see a bunch of bored parents at a playground, but instead it was pictures like this:



I have a better name for the email: "Parenting classes are for everyone."

I want to thank you all for your supportive comments and suggestions on my last post. I have an appointment to speak with the daycare director in person this afternoon. We spoke on the phone briefly yesterday. I learned that she's 22 and works at a bowling alley after work.

Which may explain the daycare's affinity for hallway bowling.

[Insert pathetic Mulletville joke here]

He's so outta there!

That sandwich picture is so wrong. There's no mayo on it!

Good luck today!

Brandy said...

um ya - the director should really be someone mature and experienced. i think you will be much happier somewhere else.

k. i was on the phone with my boss when i saw the photo. i about died.

good luck with the day care issues... just keep following your gut

FoN said...

Is it wrong I think that picture is hysterical?

I know what I'm talking about here - pull junior and keep searching until you find a daycare you're comfortable with.

I hope he took the diaper off before making the sandwich, if not I don't see how it could taste very good...

:)

Mama Badger said...

ooooh, babies are tasty with a nice lite beer.

Hmmmmm. 22, huh? So what exactly are her qualifications?

Stacie's Madness said...

good luck today...i'm am FLOORED that she is so young running (if you want to call it running, I'd like to call big FAIL on that) this "preschool"...

yeah, i'd move on, he probably just likes the social part and there are plenty of places (i'd hope) to take him.

Mrsbear said...

Wow! If the director is only 22...and moonlights at a bowling alley? I might question that just a bit.

I knew baby sandwiches would catch on...

Buggys said...

Wonder how they got licensed with a child in charge of things? There are good ones out there. How about a pre-school at a local church?

Pricilla said...

The DIRECTOR is 22?!!!!

That is just wrong...
She is still a child.
*sigh*

You gotta go with your gut. And I should know, I have four of them

I am surprised your daycare is run by a 22 year old who works in a bowling alley (what is it about the bowling alley job that makes it so much worse). Are there other nearby daycares you could consider? Both you and Junior (and Chuck, of course) need to be happy with your daycare.

Emily said...

Cra-king up! Yes, I'd say you're completely justified in getting him out of there!

Keely said...

TWENTY TWO???

Holy hell. Get him out of there.

Mad Woman said...

22?!?!?! I can barely manage to parent my OWN children at almost 31...let alone run a centre full of other people's kids. Holy Hannah...get him out of there NOW!

Jeanne said...

The DIRECTOR is 22 and has to work another job?

Time for another daycare.

SLColman said...

Oh man I am so sorry that the preschool isn't working out :( Sounds like a really bad situation.

kyooty said...

22?? wow! I've got friends who have had 4 yrsold by then, but knew better then to daycare other people's kids.

Too much lettuce for my liking.
