Child Labor

Cole is at work with me today. It’s…interesting, to say the least. It wasn’t my plan, but the daycare woman called me at 7:30 this morning, just as I was about to leave, and told me that she was too sick to take kids today.

WTF?!

Ok, I can understand and appreciate a sick day. But to call 15 minutes before she expects us there? That’s just crap.

Cole has been the best baby ever today and, honestly, I think I could bring him in every day (until he starts crawling and pulling out computer cords), but it’s just not professional. It has, however, made me think again about staying home and taking in a few more kids to help pay the bills. I would hate to burn the bridges here at work, which is probably what’s stopping me most. Oh, that and not yet having a home of my own- silly little things like that. Just silly.

I must find a new daycare person. The sooner, the better.
