New Child in Daycare!

baby 

This week started a new adventure for me in daycare. I now care for three children under the age of two. My oldest just turned one on September 4th, 2016 and my other two are 8 months and 5 months old. The start of the week was very stressful because I didn’t know what to expect and I was very worried about having to care for more than one infant at a time. The one year old is pretty easy. He crawls around the floor and plays with the infant toys that we set out for him and he interacts with the older children. I don’t know if I can necessary say he interacts with the older children or he actually annoys them to the point they just get fed up and walk away from him. The eight month old has been rough this week because he was just getting over a double ear infection and nothing would make him happy. On Tuesday I was ready to call his mom and ask her to come get him because I couldn’t handle it anymore, but instead I took a deep breath and I got through it. As the week went on he became a whole lot better and by today he took a three-hour nap and it was a nice peaceful day with him. My newest one is 5 months old. She is the sweetest little peanut. The only time she got fussy was when she was hungry and when she was ready for a nap. She is very stubborn at naptime though. She cries and cries and it takes all my energy not to go get her but I also don’t want her to learn if she cries that I will jump to her every need.

This is definitely going to be an adventure with having these three children under the age of two, but I firmly believe if I take it one day at a time and plan my day out to the best of my ability I think it should work. These three love playing with one another and if I keep this going with them I think this will be a wonderful experience for me.
