Childminder's Club: Two parents have given me notice today....

One is off to a really good opportunity for herself and she can take babba with her....and (although completely broke) asks how much she owes please include the notice. DH & I have decided that she only needs to pay what she owes - not the notice (as long as she promises to bring her babba back to play occasionally)

The second we have struggled with for nearly 3 months he just isn't settled. She has asked for March's payment back.....or she will keep him there until the end of the month. DH & I are feelong that we have to return the money (cos we don't want the child) and she is in a powerful position and can influence other people.

Isn't it odd how people make you feel

Oh dear, two in a day. If the child is so unsettled that he needs to be withdrawn, how come the Mum would rather keep him there for one more month than not get a refund? Odd priorities, if you ask me. (Cut the nose to spite the face...)

My opinion too......mind you we have been saying since early feb, that we felt he was unhappy

what a kick in the mouth!

I loved reading that you nwould like the baby to come and play...that reminds me of my c/minder (who isn't having it easy at the minute with my dd (4) )

Call her bluff - say you'll keep the child.
