I'm soooo looking forward to pie -thanks WailingGhoshe- after eating all the cookies in the house yesterday!
I've had a rubbish morning - my own LO was up from 12-5 so I'm feeling uuuurgh! I had to tell a (lovely sounding) mum that I couldn't do the days she wanted and then I rang back another enquirer but she'd already found childcare... not my day?
I'm onlt working this arvo and evening today so im taking youngest mindee (although apparently if yhour a nanny you dont have mindees-only childminders do...so what the hell DO i have?!) whos 5 months of to baby bounce.
had a morning at park, into village for fruit and clled in for my mum too, Mindees call her nana too bless 8-)..she lives overlooking park so we see lots of her, the girls pick dandilions etc for her
just back in time for 3rd mindee to arrive, one asleep, one eating late lunch as she fell asleep while out and me and other mindee are doing some fab pictures of rainbows with lots of pencils held together at once..then sticking lots of sticks all over them LOL...very artisitc
2nd mindee has 'just' started saying please and thankyou!...my persistance has paid off mum and dad are over the moon ...so when ever she asks for anyhting now " Pinkchick pees av more stickers"?.."Pinkchick thank ooh" ..she melts my heart
another bit of good news...ol mindee who had to leave due to parents redundancy is coming back, for few months at min as parents job is temporary but hoping it will lead onto further things..mindee also has baby sister who family usually have but theyre hesitant now, so i may also get her when my ratios permit, but could be 2-3 days per week 8-)...lovely family and lovely girls, one od dd's best friends too so am very
Afternoon all, been v busy today so not had a mo to check in.
Enquiries a gogo today! Although one was from someone who came to visit me a good while before and her child was a little demon, so I told a white lie and said I didn't have the space, I already have 2 "livewires" on the books and I really can't face having all 3 at once, my head would implode I think
Got a parent coming tomorrow afternoon to sign contracts, just for 5 hours a week for a 6yo but it fills a little space I have got so that's fine
