Sick Days and Daycare Issues

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Little G was home from daycare today with a fever. I'm thinking it might be related to him possibly getting in his last set of molars since the fever seems to be sporadic and he's been chewing towards the back alot on his fingers as well as drooling. I was beyond ticked yesterday though, when Dave went to go and pick him up from daycare. According to them, and by them I really mean the main "teacher" in the Twos room, he woke up with a 101.2 fever after nap time and that all of the numbers she tried on our contact list "weren't valid". Ooooookayyy....I'm calling BS on this one. There are 5 numbers on that list: my work number, my cell phone, Dave's cell phone, my Father in Law's house phone and his cell phone. All of these have missed call notifications and voice mail. You're going to tell me that NONE of those 5 numbers worked? I don't think so. Plus, if my son has a fever why would you send him outside to play in 90+ degree heat which is where he was when Dave picked him up.

For the most part I really do like where we take him for daycare. He's been going there since he was 11 months old and the teachers in the infant and toddler room were absolutely great. The two directors I usually see are really good too but I haven't had a warm fuzzy about the Two's teacher since the first time I picked Little G up. At first I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was having a rough day but her attitude toward this one little girl who wanted her "treat" for going on the potty was downright hateful until she remembered that the little girl HAD gone and then she practically thrust the treat at here and just said, "Here". She's usually hit or miss on what kind of mood she's in when I've picked him up. Sometimes all smiles and talkative other days brooding and radiating negativity. Thank goodness for the helpers that are in that room that are amazing, because if it wasn't for them and their redeeming qualities I'd seriously be looking for a new daycare.

Little G seems to be doing better today. This morning he still had a fever, but not as high and it seems his fever broke during his nap because it hasn't came back since, which is a good thing. So, him and I had a pretty good day of playing with cars and blocks and we watched the CARS movie as well as WALL-E. Today was the first time I had seen WALL-E and I have to say I didn't care for the movie at all. To me it didn't get really all that interesting until the last, maybe, 30 minutes.

I totally agree about WALL-E. It was all hyped up for nothing if you ask me.
