Sami's quirky.

Here's a video of Sami, showing how she gets across a room. She simply REFUSES to crawl. This is her way of getting around!

First: She raises her arms like Superman to "point" where she wants to go.

Second: She'll attempt to move but gets distracted by other objects.

Third: Eventually gets to her destination!

Not much is happening right now. All is quiet!

Busy at work with kids and trying to come up with new Spring craft projects that they'll like to do. Tomorrow, they'll be painting lady bugs on oval rocks. Good way to celebrate first day of Spring!

Jon is getting ready to power-wash our deck and porch, and stairs. I'm SO not looking forward to that because then Trigger will be wrapped around my legs all day due to the noise.

Not much new... Jenny, the kids' new babysitter is still sending me more pictures of the kids! I sure love getting them.
Here's another one!

So Blessed!

This is a blessing in disguise!!!

Remember, my last blog about kids' daycare terminating their care? It was a very, very tough week because I was also sick with a terrible, I mean, terrible cold. I missed two days of work. Stress could have attributed to it.

I sent "need help finding someone to babysit my kids" email through the school email. The wonderful staff responded. An interpreter from high school suggested me to contact the sub interpreter's wife. I figured, why not.... No harm, no foul.

We met Jenny-- wow~... A god-sent!

We visited them, and the sub intepreter, Jim, is also an apartment manager, so they live in an apartment, and they have three ADORABLE little dogs.

The kids immediately loved it there. So, they started going there the very next day. Of course, I was nervous, and my stomach was in knots the entire day. When I went to pick them up, they were smiling ear to ear. They LOVED it there better than their last daycare.

And get this, they live mere 1/2 mile away from where I work! Whoo-hoo.

And also get this, Jenny's an avid photographer too as well! She's just like my sister, Jill. She takes tons of photographs. She likes taking baby pictures. Haven't done any weddings. And she was thrilled to do photography work and gave me a CD full of pictures. WOWWWWWW. I'd like to share few pictures of them. :-)

All is GOOD!

Laid off... wait, that's not right...

We got laid off... from the daycare! We only use the daycare on Mondays and Fridays.

We got an email from "her" and she said she'll no longer watch Abby and Sami. She don't want part-time families anymore. HELLLLLO!!! Part-time families are the most profittable! With this sucky economy, she should be grateful that there's part-time families. She even told me some of her full-timers went to part-timers because of the economy.

So, we only had Saturday and Sunday to search for a new one! ACK! Most daycares are closed on weekends, so we can't just call up few.

We were mad. We were upset. She had no right to drop us like that, without any advanced notice. We shot an "professionalism" letter back to her. She replied back, rambling on and on why she stopped. It did not help any. We're still angry.

I tried emailing everyone I know who "could" watch the kids on Monday. Too busy. Can't. (LONG SIGHHHH).

Jon will have to stay home. I'm hoping we'll have someone by Friday.
