Well after a 1 hr screaming fit this moirning I give up. I think there are other issues at home that I just cannot control. She cried for 2 hrs non stop and it was all because mom left. I cant help this child anymore then I have. She was really great until she turned 2. And I dont believe it was terrible 2s I think it was mom is pg and not paying attention to the kid so she just wants to be at home with grandma that gives her love. So I told her till she has till the end of the month to find new care. I will enjoy my days alot more now with the 1 lil one left and my son. My son will also be happier as he hates to listen to her. I am so glad of how things will be going starting August.

Yeah, some kids are just strong willed, overly attached... spirited.... I don't know how else to put it.

It sounds like you are making a good decision. The little girl will probably be better with someone who is able to have more patience, etc.

I can't imagine what our daycare provider went through with Nathan... she used to put him in a playpen in a closet because he would just cry all the time.

The way I worded it sounds bad but it was her pantry closet in the kitchen so he could alway see everyone but he would wake the other kids up during nap time if she had him in the nap area with the other kids. It wasn't an all day thing, he was a baby and all the stimulation would really get him worked up so it was nice she had a spot that he could have his own separate space. She was wonderful with him, I don't know that I could have done it, DH was a part time SAHD and after 6 months he said he couldn't take it. I'm not exaggerating the first 6 months all I remember is him crying and us walking, rocking, anything to get the crying to stop, anything to get him to sleep.
