Yesterday was just one of those days when everything that could possibly go wrong, did. My 2yo DD who is doing very, very well with potty training pooped in her pants 3 times in a 30 minute period. Then when I went to put her soiled panties in the washing machine, my hand hit the shelf above the washer and a bottle of dark red car wash soap fell over. No big deal, right? Well, it must have hit just right because the entire top of the screw on cap broke off and red soap started going everywhere! Of course, I had nothing to clean it up with right there and I had a 13mo baby deciding that NOW is the time to get clingy and want to be held! I was holding one hand under the spill so it wouldn't go between the washer and dryer and was able to grab my son's shirt out of the laundry hamper to use.
About half an hour after all of that happened was lunch time. Pretty uneventful, then I started the usual nap time routine. I got everyone in their beds downstairs, babies by me and read a story. Then I went to put babies to bed around the corner. I then realized that my 2nd pack n play was upstairs in my daughter's room because the night before she had borrowed it to pile her clean laundry in before folding it. (She did about 6 loads of her own laundry) I decided that it would be easier if I put baby #1 in her bed upstairs just long enough to get baby #2 in her bed downstairs, then I could bring baby #1 down and put her in her usual place. I set her in the pack n play upstairs, put baby #2 in her pack n play, then decided to put my " Shh.. someone's sleeping" sign in the door before grabbing baby #1, just in case.
I opened the door and there was my licensor and a trainee. They must have rang my doorbell, which doesn't work and were standing there. I had no idea. Needless to say, it scared the holy living ____ out of me! I screamed. I'm sure that looked good for my surprise visit! Then it occured to me that baby #1 was still upstairs where she wasn't supposed to be waiting to be brought down!! Yikes!!! I explained to my licensor what had happened with my daughter using the pack n play the previous night, honestly thinking she was going to think I was making up a story, but she didn't and we were fine on that. It did take me a good half hour before I stopped shaking. I thought I was going to have a full blown panic attack when I first opened the door!
I did get written up for a few things, which I think are all ridiculous. One was they didn't like one of my parent's signatures. They said he needs to "do better than that." They didn't like my logic though, that if that is the signature that matches on his drivers license, won't all of his "new" signatures with me look like forgeries since they will be different than any other time he signs his name? I was also written up for not taking all of my kids, ranging from 13mo to 5 years outside in the stormy weather every single day, no matter what, no matter the weather (horrible wind and rain), and no matter that they have all just recently gotten over being sick and a few still have some coughs. My parents (especially of the babies) are not taking this well as I told them all to make sure to send their children ready to go outside in the stormy weather today.
