Time for another roll call! So, tell us...
NameWhere you liveHow long have you been a child care providerWhat you Thanksgiving day plans are!
I'm CathyI live in Colorful Colorado!I've been a licensed provider for 10 years now. I was a nanny before having my kids and for a while when Robin was a baby.For Thanksgiving this year we're going to do what we've done pretty much every year for the last 17 years--have a nice, quiet family meal! There have been a couple years where we've gone and visited family or had people over, but I think this year we're going to just do a family meal. Just me, dh, the kids and my mom. I think we'd like my mom to go to my brother's house, but... I won't go there right now. :p
Have a great week everyone, and a Thankful November!

Thanksgiving up in the air...being pregnant I wish for times when family got all together and I don't want to do the just me, the DH and the kids thing again.
My name is Tonya
I am originally from CT but relocated to the sunny NC coast 3 years ago.
I was a licensed home provider for almost 5 years in CT, then worked in both center and group care on
Tonya, I know what you mean about the holidays making you blue. We lost my dad on Nov 25th, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, back in 1996. It wasn't unexpected--he'd been sick for about six weeks, but it was still life altering and tragic. Any death is. So yes, Thanksgiving is hard for me sometimes. My mom, too (much more so than me). Huge hugs, Girl.
My name is Lisa
I've been licensed in my home for 6.5 years, since 2003, but before that did daycare with my MIL since 2000.
I live in boring ole' Michigan:)
I am cooking Thanksgiving myself this year. I'm tired of going to my MIL house and never getting leftovers so I'm putting my foot down and not going anywhere. MIL is not happy with my choice but oh well I say!!
Happy November to you all!!
I haven't posted in ages, but I lurk pretty regularly, so I thought I'd pop out for roll call. :)
Name -- Annie
Where you live -- Atlanta
How long have you been a child care provider -- I've been a full-time nanny for about seven years. I currently work for a family with two little girls. The older will be two on Saturday, and the younger is seven months.
What you Thanksgiving day plans are! -- I'm meeting my girlfriend's parents for the first time, and I'm crazy nervous! She's actually taking me to Washington, DC for a full week, and while we're there we're driving to her parents' house (about two hours away) just for the day of Thanksgiving. It's our first vacation together, and I LOVE Washington, so I can't wait. But I am definitely nervous about meeting her parents. I've met her brother (who she's very close to) and we was wonderful -- very kind and welcoming and easy to talk to. So hopefully this will go well too!
