Snow Day!

So today's a snow day for school! Which is good, because it also means I'm down a couple of kids today. Makes it a bit nicer than having all of them. The bad thing? I said yes to my friend again, and her child screamed for over.an.hour. after she dropped her off. At 6 o'clock. My nerves are completely jangled. I am going to have to tell her that it isn't working out at all for me. Instead of getting better, the situation's getting WORSE. I'm sorry. I do believe that I'm a patient person. But my patience was stretched to the very limit this morning. As soon as I pick up the phone to tell mom to come pick her up, she fell asleep. *THANK FUCKING GOD!* But, I do have to tell her mom this. Because I seriously can't do it anymore. An hour is just way too excessive. I held her, she screamed. I put her down, she screamed. Thinking that if she knew I meant business, and that I would hold her if she'd just shut up, I picked her back up again. She screamed. I put her in a pack n' play, where she screamed some more.....

....and now, after about a 2 hour nap, I'm afraid that she's up, and I'm going to go have to deal with her again. My ENTIRE household was up this morning, on a SNOW DAY, because she is so miserable. *sigh*


****** update*******

I called Mom, and Grandma came and got them. Of course, I nearly bit my tongue in half to not say anything rude to her when she came in and the bit wasn't crying. She stuck her hand to her ear and said "I don't hear anything." Grandma can be such a bitch, I tell you! :(

OH NO!!! Good luck getting through the day and next time the mom calls, send her my way and I'll tell her where to put her 24/7 screaming baby.

Poor baby, and poor you. Don't feel guilty just do what you know is best for you and your kids. Remember you're doing this job so you can raise your own children, they're the ones that need to come first.

I say if the little thing wants to cry paddle her little ass to give her something to cry about. Then I bet she wouldn't give you any shit. Anyway a good ass beaten never hurt anybody anyway.

I agree with Mike!! Is this Lily we're talking about? I would be SO pissed if that grandma said that in front of me! What is up with that? I would say "fuck off, bitch" - ok, maybe not the f-bomb, but something close to it...

btw, love the Christmas card! Thank you!!!

It is hard to swallow when you hear someone being so passive aggressive like that...if the grandmother was any kind of a mother she would have known that sometimes a caregiver (mother, friend or whoever) nerves are shaken...I don't care who you are...it happens to everyone once in awhile.

I say good for you for sticking up for yourself and everyone else in the household for having them take the child away.
