Ok I am like massively stressed out cause I am very confused as how this could happen.
To start this very long story, I just wanted everyone to keep in mind that my twins go to daycare in the morning, then to preschool at an actual school then back to daycare afterwards.
A couple weeks ago, my twins got into a little sibling fight at daycare over the kitchen center and one of my girls smacked her sister in the face with a toy and gave her a nice little shiner. They went to school with perfectly fine attitudes. About an hour after being there, I received a phone call from the school stating that one of my girls came to school with a black eye and my other one came to school with 2 scratches on her arms. I told them that the scratches were from our little cat at home. And as far as the black eye I wasn't sure where it came from and that I would go straight to the daycare to find out what caused it. I went to the daycare and discovered that they did get into a fight at daycare. So I had the daycare write up an incident report so I can take it to the school so that they didn't think that it happened at home. I took the paper to school, went home, picked up my husband and went to get the kids from daycare.
The next day, I took them to daycare, and as I dropped them off, the head lady came up to me and said "I just wanted to let you know that after you left yesterday with the kids, a CPS worker called about the black eye." I told her I would go talk to the school to find out what was going on because this was the first time that I had heard anything. I went to the school and found out that it was standard procedure for this and that they weren't looking into me, that CPS was investigating the daycare for the black eye. About 2 hours later, I received a phone call from the worker confirming this. This investigation lasted about 2 days and I never heard anything back.
Everything was fine until 2 days ago. I got the kids up, got them dressed and fed, and took them to daycare, went and did a WIC shopping and came home. *Please note: When someone knocks on my door, I know their knock, but this was different* About an hour of me being home, I received a weird knock on my door, I looked out the peep hole and saw a lady hiding half way down my stairs, so I opened the door, stepped outside, and closed the door behind me. This lady didn't have a badge and didn't release her name. She told me that she was an investigator from CPS and that she was in charge of investigating 2 bruises found on one of my children. I told her I was un-aware of any bruises and she told me that she needed to do a "FACE-2-FACE" with my children at daycare. I told her that was fine and she went straight up there. My impression of a Face 2 Face is like how you see someone when your talking to them. I waited about 35 minutes, talked to my husband and he told me to go get the kids from daycare and bring them home. I went to the daycare, and discovered that this lady had taken my kids into a back room, pulled part of their pants down and lifted their shirts and took pictures. The daycare lady told me that she had told the lady that the only way that the school could of seen these is if they were doing what she was doing...pulling down their pants and lifting their shirts. *Mind you, my children don't need assistance in going potty*. I was a bit disturbed because this lady didn't tell me she was going to be taking pictures of my children like this and that I wanted to be there, cause this had to have been weird and a little scary for them.
I brought my children home, and waited 4.5 hours for this lady to call me. I called the CPS office to find out who it was and got her number after I didn't receive a phone call. I called her and left a message. About an hour later, I got the phone call from her. She said that the bruises on my child's hip were not brand new and not significant enough for her to investigate. But then she brought up the issue of hygiene. She stated that there was a report made by the school stating that I was sending my children to school with dirty clothes. I told her that I wasn't only the only point of contact before they get to school and that the girls eat at daycare, do arts and crafts that do tend to get messy, but I would never send my children anywhere with any dirty clothes. And I told her that yesterday, I sent one of my girls in a very cute CLEAN pink shirt, and when I got her home, it was covered in some kind of food sauce.
She told me that she wanted to come and do an in-visit at my home to make sure that my children were safe and being well taken care of. She told me that having 2 special needs kids and having one on the way had to be very stressful for me. *How did she know I was pregnant---The school released this info* I told her to call me back in 15 minutes and I would tell her the time and date when we could do the visit. She never called back. Was this a scare tactic?
