Today was my first day as a childminder!!!
my daughter woke up in the mood, ready to argue with her own shadow, waking her brother, stealing me the opportunity of a shower!!
mindee arrived just after that and dd bickered with her all morning (and with me and with ds who's only 1).
managed to have some peace between them, made and ate my birthday cake and after mindee left realised my dd had lice!!

great on first day i had to phone mum about ice, bought her a treatment and told her it was my treat!!!
had to deal with dd'a head, all th beds, bedrooms, teddys..... what a mare and i was working as carer tonight...

...and it's my birthday!!!!

what a mare!!!!!!!!!!:(

Bless you! A slightly belated :birthday:
Sorry your day did not quite go as you hoped, but that is the joy and unpredictability of childminding!!
On a positive note, it can only get better!!!
Hope your second day of minding goes better. Also hope you have something nice planned for your birthday! :)

thank you ladies,

this morning DD started the day exactly like yesterday and i said "oh no my girl i'm not doing yesterday again, you restart your today!!" I put her in her bedroom and closed the door! she looked confused, cried then decided to start playing instead!!!:D
she's in a better mood today,:phew:

i'm going to use the outdoor boxe given by ncma, keep them busy, outside!!!!!

didn't want to plan to much as we're just getting to know each others.we'll make it as we go along.:thumbsup:

Bless ya!

Next time you find lice don't worry about doing all the beds and teddies!! :panic:
Lice only live on human hair and don't survive for more than an hour with out a human as it's host.
