She wants me to pay HER for someone else to watch my kid???
My friend, who runs an in home daycare and who watches my kids on scheduled school days off, always sends her children away to friends homes when she watches my kids. I'm sure they can be a handful. So, I get it.
So, tomorrow the kids are off school and my sitter sends me a text asking if my son can tag along with her son to a friends house for the entire day. I don't know this childs parents, where they live... or anything about them other than their names. So, naturally the answer is no!
In addition to trying to pawn my kid off on someone else, she made no mention of me not paying her, and no suggestion of me paying the friends parents instead. WTH... so she expects to have my son supervised by some stranger I don't know and then have the nerve to still accept payment from me for childcare services????
I posted about this sitter recently. The link is below. Same sitter, different situation... but makes me glad, none the less, that I have decided to pursue other childcare alternatives for the summer. What happened in the post below was clearly a blessing in disguise.
My son is 11
btw... I am venting. Not looking for advise. And I will just say in advance that if anyone here were in my shoes and you chose to send your child to the friends house, I think you are a crazy and irresponsible parent. period.
