View Full Version : have done it ! First day of childminding

01-06-2009, 06:47 PM
and it went well, 10 hours went quite quickly and the children really settled quickly, I didnt plan anything, just went with the flow and it went well. THe only hard bit was went we went to the park, my little boy wanted to be carried ( he is 10 months old) , the 2 years old wanted to go on the slide and the 4 years old on the sing and I felt I didnt have enough hands !!! but it went well despite a bit stressfull. I was glad when the mum came at 7.00 though to pick them up and that my husband came home at 6.30 to deal with our son...

Roll on tomorrow then !!!

Thank you for all your support !
