another funny scrappers moment to share

You know how we run a little home daycare? They all know I scrapbook and am always taking photos. I show the kids my pages all the time (if they are about them anyway). I think I've corrupted our oldest (just turned 6) into the scrap world. She's had a loose tooth for two weeks. Today it was hanging by a thread but I didn't want to yank it without asking her parents since there must have been some reason they left it in this morning right?
Well all day J was super brave and kept saying "come on, just pull my tooth out and take my picture!" It was even bleeding and she wasn't bothered...well her Mom comes to pick her up and I mention her tooth and she bursts into emotional tears. We all went "what's wrong?! You've been brave all day hun!" She goes "I'm not crying about my tooth! It doesn't hurt! I'm crying because I am the first daycare kid to lose a tooth and Karen can't scrap the page if my tooth stays stuck!!" LOL!!! We all burst out laughing. Her Mom promised to pull it out as soon as they got home and we could take a pic in the morning. lol. love that kid.

Oh and my little cousin Abby comes here too. The other day she was on the front page of the local paper. She was so excited to show all of us and I asked if she had a spare copy we could have. She goes to the van, brings two back, and says "the extra one is so you can scrap me." Do these kids know me or what? LOL!

I love it! That is just great. You make me miss doing daycare sometimes. I did it for so so long, but stopped when I had Jamie. I don't always miss it, but when I read these posts and see your pages I do.

Oh Charys, how awful! I would be in your position completely if I had to go to work and leave Allie and Jamie. I don't have any idea who I would get! I will say a prayer that you are able to find someone to keep him for you that will love him and take extra special care of him.

While I thank you for the compliments, and we would take Cohen in a heartbeat, I am SO sorry! What a time for this to happen to you! You should be relaxing and enjoying being Mommy to a newborn again! Not having this stress! ARGH!! If there is ANYTHING I can do, please let me know. Seriously, if you even find numbers you want me to phone around to from here...anything. Love you so much hun and I really feel for you. :bigarmhug: Have you thought about trying to take on a couple children from home just until something opens up for Cohen to go to and then you can go back to work? Or is that not feasible as far as keeping your other job? Just thinkign out loud.

First, I apologize for downing this thread. Sad I shouldn't have unloaded like that. It was just that I was stressing so badly about this yesterday and your daycare truly sounds like heaven!! Sorry girl!! Sad

I have thought about taking kids in my home, but the main reason for me going back to work at the bank is the insurance.....sadly America is not the same as Canada in that regard and without medical insurance it's awful. :(And we can;t afford insurance independent of work due to pre-existing medical conditions DH has. (he was born with a congenital heart defect so his heart meds are over $300 a month without insurance...sickening) Anyways, I know God will open a door, I just need to have more faith. Thank you for your amazing kindness and friendship Karen. Love you.

Thanks girls! I will definitely journal those on the pages. lol.

Charys please don't apologize! We are all friends and these are like little conversations. Don't worry about the whens and hows of venting your frustrations! I'm frustrated for you myself...and the day YOU are a downer on anyone, I think hell would freeze over. lol. You are so sweet and we all really care about what happens to you and your family. Post it anywhere you are!
