Things to Consider Before You Start a Day-home


I took care of a kid for one school year. Originally I was told it would be 2, maybe 3, days a week. No matter how many days a week it will be here are some things I didn’t consider, but should have. The difficult bits……. 1. Have a contract. Oh, but, it’s for friends you say. Oh, but, I…

Tomorrow Might as Well be a Clear Day

I have such a routine now that I am back and it is the New Year (lucky number 13). Well, in between the unpacking and getting rid of Xmas recycling….I have started to pin down a routine.

New Year, New Hopes


1. I will post at least once a week on this blog. 2. I will be more consistent in my parenting. 3. I will try to be more organized. But if things fall by the wayside cuz I was too busy playing with the kids, or doing something creative, I will not beat myself up over it. Just because a…
