I just want your opinions on this, I know ill hear different opinions so here is goes. I was looking for a daycare for my now 7months old since I wanted to go back to work. All the daycares in my area have no places available and the waiting lists go all the way to 2015. So wow then I started checking out daycares that are at home.. Some were really expensive and some were too far. So later on I found one that seemed o.k. That was two streets away from my home and there was a place available for a baby between 6months-12months so I called the lady and she told me she had just gave the place to somebody else and that she is complete at her daycare. So for the moment im a sahm with dd at home everyday. One morning about 1week or 2 after I spoke to this lady, i walk to the bank. While getting out of my appartment building with dd, I saw this lady with 5kids (3who seemed to be around 4, one about 2or 3 years old and the last was a baby around my dd age and he was in a stroller). This looked like a home daycare who was going out for a walk. So I arrive at the bank and when I get out I see her goong to the bank with the kids. After the bank I went to the pharmacie close by. When I get out I see her come in with the kids to buy some stuff. Then I was talking on the phone so i just stayed in front of the store. I see her get out and walk towards the grocery store. And the kids just following. This lady was doing her personal stuff while at work. I know this was the lady i called because I heard one of the kids yell her name because he was getting bored. I feel like just forgetting going back to work and be a sahm. I mean she could of at least brought them to the park or something i mean come on this is a daycare! go do your shit some other time. Is this acceptable to you or not? ******EDIT****** : since this post was made I saw this lady 5 other times. At walmart, bank again, pharmacie BUYING mAKEUP!!, and at starbucks. And yes it is the lady i called she. Was talking to a lady next to me at walmart saying those arent her kids and that she works in a daycare and so on. She said her name and where her daycare was. Yeah it was exactly who i thought it was. The kids wouldnt stop yelling that this was so boring while she was buying some makeup. Lol how ridiculious.
