Can you imagine dropping your baby off at daycare and when you pick them up after work there’s a nasty message written on their stomach…
In permanent marker?
Well, that’s precisely what happened to a single mother who was shocked to find that a daycare worker wrote a message to her on her son’s stomach about running out of diapers.
Putting your child in daycare is difficult for most parents. It’s tough to leave your kids under the supervision of someone else. And even though they’re the most wonderfully aggravating little monsters you’ll ever come into contact with, the second you’re away from them, you can’t wait until they’re back in your arms. On top of all that, childcare costs are very, very high, in the US especially.
It’s a lot for any parent to handle, and Heather Chisum, a single mom with two children in daycare, has to deal with all of those challenges and more. Like the fact that her boys, Fin and Milo, are being looked after by some strangely heartless folks.
That’s perhaps harsh, but how else do you describe someone who leaves a message for a mom on her child’s chest and stomach in permanent marker?
It sounds more like something the mafia would do. Actually, no, most mobs wouldn’t mess with someone’s child, but here’s this daycare center that thought a good place for a note to buy more diapers was on a toddler’s stomach. [Distractify.com]
Here’s the mom’s Facebook post:
So. I need opinions. Am I right to be furious about this? Or am I overreacting? I really need your opinions guys, because I’m about to barge in this daycare tomorrow morning and have some words.
Everyday when I pick Fin and Milo up from daycare they put a daily report paper in Milo’s lunch box. It says what mood he was in for the day, what times they changed his diapers, and if he needs diapers or wipes.”
I’m a single mom with a full time job and two very young children. SUE ME FOR NOT READING THE REPORT EVERY SINGLE DAY.
I guess yesterday they wrote on his report that he needs diapers, and I failed to see that. Now keep in mind, I see several teachers at drop off and several at pick up, if I failed to see that he needs diapers a simple, “Hey Heather, your son needs diapers maybe you missed the report” would have done the trick. From any of the many teachers there I see daily.
But instead, I change his diaper this afternoon AND SEE THIS WRITTEN ON MY SON WITH MARKER. You can’t even see all of it in the pic.. it says, ‘Mom I’m out of diapers pls read my report.’ I’ve scrubbed it with several baby wipes and it’s not coming off. I had plans to take them to the beach to play, and now I can’t because my son has writing all over him.
Why on earth couldn’t this daycare worker tell the mother or write her a note on a piece of paper?
This is absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable.
Whoever did that should be fired and this woman’s daycare bill should be paid in full for the rest of that little boy’s toddler life.
