IMO for a mom to drop off a baby that is sick. Like seriously irratated right now. Monday and tuesday he was over and cranky as FUCK as usual and i was left to deal with for 11hours. When she dropped him off tuesday she was like he has beenpuking all night and has a fever.. My first thought?!? Why thefuck is he here???? But im too nice to say anything to her and just deal with it.



So last night an hour after we lay the kids down emmalynn pukes all over the bed, then shortly after i fall alseep i wake up to most violent puking i have ever done. I thought my eyes were gonna pop out of my head. All the while water shit is coming out of my asshole, and then i woke up to the other one puking. I have broken bloodvessels all over my face and two in my eye which scared my daughter she thought i was bleeding.




Im pissed as fuck right now. Why cant people be morer considerate? I dont give a fuck about what your job is and if you can leave or call in or something. Dnt bring your sick ass baby over to somone elses house that is full of even more babies. So now i have to let everyone know who i babysat that we are all sick and to prepare because some people are inconsiderate assholes. I texted her this morning saying i obviously cant work qnd that when he is sick she needs to find someone else to wqtch him because 3 dollars a fucking hour isnt enough money to put my kids at risk of getting sick with something like this.. Idc about colds. But a stomach virus with pouking and diahreah is something that doesnt need to be spread around to other kids. So now i get to reschedule emmalynns IEP meeting that was today and very important. Im so pissed...

Is it the same lady who wouldn't pick up her baby & take him to the drs. Me & all the kids have gotten the same virus, it usually passes after a few days. Hope you feel better

You should have told her no.
My daycare would absolutely tell me no way. Their policy is the child has to be fever, vomit, diariah free for 24 hours before they are welcome back to the center.

You need to set guidelines for your parents that you babysit for, let them know when you will keep them and when you wont. Keep in mind tho... he may have been contagious last week so it wont necessarily protect you :-( but give them guidelines. Every daycare has them

Yes. She was gonna go to a new home day care next week but didnt like the girl and wasnt comfortable and she said she is looking for another sitter, but cant find anyone cheap like me.. Go figure. My SO said to tell her to fuck herself ..but i didnt get paid for 2 weeks because she is giving me babyshit. I want that baby stuff before i tell her im done. Or 300 bucks.

This is my new rule, im gonna write up a contract. Im seeriously done with this shit and getti g fucked over by these people.. She has "no one" else to eatch her kid. Her hubby is gone at police academy and its just her and her lawyer boss where she works, so she says its impossible to not come in. But idc anymore. No more feeling sorry for her...i have to deal with kids who are puking in buckets and shitting on the couch at the same time thanks to her.

It's partially your fault that you knew the child was sick & didn't tell the mother to take him back home. But I hope your family gets well soon! The stomach flu is the absolute worst.

That's a really good idea, I've seen several of your posts about babysitting and it seems like you're really being taking advantage of

Yeah it fucking sucks but that's the life of a parent. I hate using vacation time on a sick kid especially because half the time he has a fever he really is fine. But it's the responsible thing to do. She will have to get over it.

You should have the standard policy in place, no puking diarrhia(sp) or fever. Thats a pretty basic rule of childcare, it's not fair to anyone to keep exposing kids to more virus'

She is the only one that has ever brought over a sick kid. Other people have common sense.. Which i figured not bringing over a sick kid to others houses was a comon senes.. Now she knows.. I will not hesitate to drop him off at her work if he gets sick at my house... I should of just told her i couldnt keep him.. Ugh now we are all miserable.

Ive been in this situation more then once. Im a working mom and taking off work is a fucking nightmare! But if my child is that sick, nothing is making me go to work. I need to be there for my kid. And plus daycare has a policy saying if they have a fever they can not be there. Have you thought about making a contract for her to sign? Sick policy, time policy, pay policy? Just to protect yourself.



This last time Julian was sick, he was sick for about 10days. It was a lonnnng cold, I called my MIL to come stay with him at our house. That worked out great, cause you know I cant really take 10days off....
