Did you have to, it was supposed to be his day off...

Would I be breaking board guidelines by stating that I think people who sell pyramid schemes to people desperate to make some money are the scum of the earth? If so, I apologize.

How very Christian of you to stand in judgement of the women who entrust their babies to you!

As a working mom, I can tell you that the hours that those kids you have been entrusted with are not obsene.

1) You have 4 at home full time and you take it at least two more and one is a baby?

Thank you! Your post demonstrates so perfectly why I always emphasize the need to research a provider's devotion to her profession and why I would never hire anyone who provides care for the purpose of "SAH". If the provider can't see she's a business woman, running a professional business, with a dedication to that business, she can't provide the high quality care that children need from a provider.

I'm also very grateful for the opportunity for others to see the inherent derision with which you hold the very people who are making it possible for you to SAH. What parent would want to leave their children in the hands of someone who has no respect or professionalism towards their employers?

Thank you for making those points far better and more tellingly than I could ever have done. You've done a great service to the true quality professional providers out there who are often overlooked by parents fooled by the poseurs such as your self claiming to be the same thing when you're clearly not.

I'm curious to know how many children you take in, given you have 4 of your own there constantly. What state are you working out of that would permit you to have more than 1 or at most 2 (if neither are infants) daycare kids, given you have four slots already filled by your own kids.

Oh good grief, hypocritical drivle and spam in one? It just keeps on getting better. LOL.

You are a WAHM btw. You split your attention between your children and other working moms. If you actually practiced what you preached, you'd *be* with your kids not working with someone elses. -- Unless you actually are going to say you can pay as much attention to your children while your DC clients are there, as when they arent?

So what do you do with the dc kids while you are homeschooling? Or is that just what you call parenting your under school age children?

This is why I didn't trust home daycares.
