I've helped out with the little ones now, (aged 12-24 months) as well as the oldest ones, (4 & 5 year olds).
I'm not sure which was better.
Perhaps I should volunteer to help with the toddlers next time- those 2 & 3 year olds who spent much of the morning crying and doing their 2 and 3 year old tantrummy things.
At least then I'd have a clear picture of all the child care options.
Well, besides the wee tiny babies; but since regular kids don't frighten me too much, I can bear to leave the sweet & cuddly ones to others.
Today my child care options, (for the third day in a row) consist mainly of reminding Micah to take his decongestants and Tylenol. He says his throat is 3% better than yesterday. He looks like he feels better, if that's any indication.
As long as he continues to keep his germs to himself. The aching joints? Merely old age. The stuffy nose? Dust allergy. The stomach weirdness? Something I ate. Fatigue and general weariness? Just fatigue and general weariness. I am NOT getting his thing.
I have some sewing to do.
And a kitchen to tidy.
And a chiropractor to track down.
