Lesson 228: St Patrick's Day and Daycare Update...
Ted and his first St. Patrick's Day. :)
If Tyler and my marriage can survive getting the house licensed to do daycare, we can survive ANYTHING. Saturday Tyler had his dad and brother come over to help install the new door. After cutting into the wall they found 3 wires so we will need a building permit and to have an electrician come in. They decided to get to work on the back fence that is rotting away thanks to our neighbors planting hedges along the perimeter of their yard.
A note to all home owners. If you have this grand idea of lining your yard with hedges. DON'T! It will not look as cool as you think it will and all it does is crowd your yard and eat away at the fence. They did get the fence fixed. Check that off the list.
I was not home when they were going through all this. I had to help my sister move. After I got home Tyler and I went to Home Depot to buy some more things for the daycare. One of the things we bought was a new toilet seat. It is a fancy one that has a built in child's seat and it closes slowly so you don't have to worry about the seat or lid dropping down really hard. I am pretty excited about this toilet seat hahaha. Plus, there is something so fantastic about a brand spanking new and clean toilet seat.
Yesterday, Tyler and I stayed up until midnight working on putting together a family child care policy handbook. Yes, this too is part of getting licensed and there is a huge list of items that must be included. We did not finish but we are close. I also have to create 2 more policy handbooks and an emergency manual.
This week Tyler has a friend coming over who just completely remodeled his house and this weekend he has another friend coming over who is a licensed electrician. So Tyler is pretty awesome!
