Is It Spring?

Hooray! I got to be a diary pick today! Now you think I only write when I get noticed by dogster, but I was planning on doing the weekly update today anyway.

Even though I did not get to go to mom's disco Valentine's party, I did get to go on a car ride to mom's work. I got to see the swarm of children pile on mom as she came through the door. Even the kids who are not in her class climb all over her.

She is getting ready for major inspections in March so she has been working late trying to get her room ready. One inspection is just to see what shape mom's room is in: if she has enough blocks, if her Baby dolls are multi-cultural, if she has a sand and water table, and if the room is clean. Well Duh, there are 20 five year olds in that room, do you think it's clean? So mom and her helper have been working late all week cleaning.

The second inspection is with the feds so you know its about stupid rules made up by people who never worked in daycare or pre-k or have even been around kids. They want to make sure mom is following all those rules. One example: How many times should you wash a child's hands while changing their diaper.(Not that mom has to change diapers, but this is the example that comes to mind)Answer: 5 times! When you take the diaper off, after you wipe his bottom, after you put powder/lotion on the child, when you put the clean diaper on and when you are totally finished. This is not how many times to wash your hands, it's how many times to wash the baby's hands. And the rules for 5 year olds are just as crazy.

The third inspection is from the state and they want to see how well mom is teaching the cirriculum. Mom gets inspected by the county a lot and this is just a ramped up county inspection. But you all might want to keep mom in your happy thoughts during March. Because if mom isn't too stressed out over inspecions she will give me lots of walks and treaties because she'll be thinking of me, as it should be.

I titled this entry is it spring because I know lots of you are still dealing with snow, snow and snow, but our crouci are blooming and our neighbor's daffodils had budded. I think spring is on the way.

Dad went to the doctor today. He has a sinus infection. The doctor thinks it might be time for dad to get that sinus surgery. That will mean I will have someone to hang out with all day while dad is recovering. They are going to see how this new meds work before they decide about surgery.

Well that's all the news this week. Everyone stay safe and have hope. I know spring is coming.
