This one time I was sleeping and…
This one time I was sleeping and the doorbell rang. I stared at my clock and shot out of bed. When you run a home daycare and parents depend on you to have your door open in the morning so they can throw their kids on your couch and make it to work on time…it’s kind of important that you be awake.
If you’re not awake, you may be forced to throw on the closest pair of yoga pants and a hoodie sans bra/makeup/brushed hair…and greet the parents with morning breath.
Worse yet, is that the doorbell will wake every sleeping body in your home. Your dog will bark in response to the disruptive noise. Your baby will cry in response to the barking dog. And your toddlers will get out of bed far earlier than what is normal for them. You will be left with a chaotic morning as you scramble to get yourself ready for the day while watching a handful of angry and tired children. And you won’t have time to check any of your social media accounts.
Being late to work is one of the most embarrassing things I can do.
And the parents laugh at me every time.
And yes it’s happened more than once.
But even more embarrassing than every bra-less meet and greet I’ve ever had…was the morning one of the daycare dads decided to come upstairs to wake me up!
