Being Dumped

I don't mean from my husband (so dramatic), but possibly from our daycare provider. I just have this hunch.

Yesterday was Jack's first day back after a two week vacation. Karen seemed happy to see him. I warned her that he was teething, fussy and had a bad diaper rash. This is not something that she is unfamiliar with. She has three boys of her own and Jack has been with her since he was 4 months old.

When I picked him up, she seemed........well, off. She seemed tired, and I didn't get a full report of his day like I usually do. I asked if he was fussy and she said "Medium-ish". Maybe she has some stuff going on at home. Maybe she is just tired. I am not really sure.

This morning, I went to drop Jack off at his normal time. When I got there, she let me know that she thought she was coming down with a stomach bug and it was probably safter if I kept Jack home for the day. This is not a huge deal, but it did mean I needed to call in sick which I don't like to do.

Is this her way of telling me that my kiddo is being dumped? I sure hope not. I am probably being overdramatic but I just have this feeling. Let's hope I am wrong. More to come tomorrow.

  1. I've had that stomach bug recently and it was awful... Maybe she just wasn't feeling so well.
