I got a call today from my son's school that his daycare FORGOT to pick him up from school!!!!!!!!!!!!! Luckily I was in town (sometimes my job makes me travel 1-hour out of the area for inspections) and could rush over to get him. To make it worse the school tried calling them and I tried calling them for 45 minutes before I got a call back from the director!
I cried the whole way to his school, I was so upset!!
My son is in afternoon kindergarten from 12-2:30. I work from home until he gets on the bus at 11:45 and then I rush around trying to do my full time job until I pick him up from the after school program between 4-5. I hired his preschool from last year (they also have an after school program) to pick him up Tuesday-Friday after school so I can work, because sometimes I have to travel around the area for inspections and I never know if I can be home exactly when his bus arrives.
The director finally called me and said she had him on the schedule for Wed-Friday!!! WTF!! I called her the week before school started to get the schedule set and then I texted and emailed her the schedule! AND....she charges me for 4-days of care...but somehow has me down for 3????:angry4:
Well, now I don't know what to do. I told her this was a deal breaker because she left a 5-year old stranded and that is NOT OKAY! She sent me a long text apologizing and saying she'll give us a week free and have the driver text me every day to let me know Caleb is with them and safe. But I don't know. Caleb went there for preschool the last two years and there were several days where I would get texts from her saying: "is Caleb coming to school today?" on days where we never sent him to school. There is a history of schedule mishaps. It just didn't matter back then when I was in control of dropping him off & picking him up. I can't take another chance of this happening again.
I'm just so upset! I'm pregnant, working full time and I can't stand the thought of my sweet boy stranded at school. I think DH & I are going to juggle this week between the two of us and try and find a new place.
What would you guys do?
Thanks for letter me vent.:(:(
