  • Your baby takes advantage of the situation! LOL sounds llike he just has a hard time slowing down from what he put the sitter through. My DD acted like she was on crack when she first started daycare

  • generally the sitter who ever it may be is not as strict as you the parent are and it is more noticeable when we get the kiddos back. I am right there with you though.

  • LOL. I go to school twice a week for six hours, and as soon as I come in the door the kids all start acting crazy. My sitter brings her grandson and even he starts getting crazy. I don't know what the heck happens, and neither does the sitter...she always says "it's so crazy, they've been fine all day and once your home they start going crazy".....
    I don't know what the heck it is, but I feel your pain!

  • kids are ALWAYS different with there sitter then there parents, i worked at a daycare for 7 years and we always had parents asking how we do things because some of the things they did at daycare they wouldn't do for them at home for example we had kids that would sleep in crib at daycare but not at home. I think it is because they know what they can and cannot get away with with there mom and they know that we moms are always easier to manipulate. (for most things anyway)

  • my son listens to me UNTIL he gets home from the sitters.

    on a normal night he'd be in bed asleep right now.

    tonight he is laying next to me kicking his legs around and scream 'glug glug glug glug glug' over and over again.

    i'm about to have a mental breakdown.

  • I'd look at his diet with him. Perhaps she's giving him junk food or sugary drinks.
