Well, I just got rid of all my email and it is 11:15. Guess this may be a short entry :)
I attended the J~Land Anniversary chat last night (Thanks, Kelly!) I discovered that I lurked at almost every Journal whose owner was there at that time... It was a nice.
I took Gracie to see her other grandparents yesterday. Wayne went with us, which I always appreciate. Now, his Mom is slowly recovering the 2nd knee replacement on the same knee, so she isn't that active. His Dad was out mowing people's yards and didn't come home until we had already been there a few hours.
But I have a dilemma... or actually a trust issue evolving with him. See, the first time we went over there he asked Grace if she wanted to go down to the basement (it's a family room). Wayne's Mom can't really go downstairs, so I asked Wayne if he would go down there to make sure Grace didn't get out of hand. He went with them, and they all played and had a good time.
This time, Wayne's Dad told Grace that he would take her to the park the next trip, and that just they would go and then they'd get ice cream. Maybe I am really that untrusting, but I got a chill when he said that. I really do not want him alone with my daughter. I hate being so overprotective... but it seems (to me, at least) that he wants to get Grace alone. And something about that just doesn't sit right in my gut. Ya'll know I'm a big believer in trusting guts ;)
Am I being too paranoid? I do not know this man. Hell, Wayne does not even know his father that well. And his family never (I mean NEVER) talks to each other about anything. Also, his Mom said to me "Robert (Wayne's Dad) likes kids. He's good with them, especially girls."
Wayne's oldest, Kim, is the only grandchild to spend time there and I have no idea if she was ever molested... or Wayne's sister for that matter. Though I think his sister may have spoken up, she's pretty vocal. My solution is to ask Wayne to go with them to the park. If he says no, I'm screwed and I'll go or invite them to come over here and let them go to a park close to home. I just don't want my little girl (baby) violated... by anyone!
Anyway~ I walked into my room at work today to 4 toddlers. We had 9 on the schedule. We had 8 show up. You know I got a bunch of kids who didn't leave until 6:00.
We had 2 that did nothing but cry.... all day. 2 that kept taking toys away from the other tots... all day. 1 that kept pushing kids down all day. 1 that was sick and just laid around the whole day. 2 that I wish I could clone and replace the others with....
Got talked to like I was 5 by a pissy father of a newbie in our room. I bit my tongue as long as I could! I was never out of line, really. I just kept repeating my answer when he kept asking me the same question (3 times... in a row!!).
He wanted to know why I couldn't just give his daughter Orajel. I told him it wasn't written on the medication sheet and to check with the office because I was told if it is not written down, it is not given. He asked me that again, twice. Just repeated it again... then again. I answered him twice, exact phrase.... slower each time ;) I get that it is Orajel and sold over the counter, but rules are rules. (And I do not make them, just enforce them)
Told the manager and apologized to her. She said he didn't mention anything to her, so not to worry. But I told her I wanted to make sure she knew just in case. She said I was right not to just give it to her, so that's good....
It is so cool outside right now, I'm almost scared to say I am cold! How I have missed being cold :) The signs of Fall are slowly creeping upon us.... About time, too!!
K, think I'm hitting the sheets now.....
I'll leave you with one last question: Why would someone, after almost 4 years now, lie to an ex about having a date? Just curious what you guys think....
See you tomorrow~
