The Downlow On The Daycare Situation

Lets update on the daycare situation. After I posted on Friday, my babysitter called and told me about another lady not to far from her house that also watches kids. I called her Friday afternoon and talked to her until I had a customer. She seemed really nice on the phone and we made arrangements to meet later that night.
I went home and we got our food ready to sit down and eat and Zack threw up. He seemed like he choked on his mucus. He was fine and still ate super.
So we went to the Lady's house. Turns out she is married to my cousin, who I did not realize was my cousin. He lived down the road from me when I was little. They are really nice people and he talked to Mikie quite a bit. She is also a good talker, reads and scrapbooks. We went off on talking about this. Zack had a good time as they have 3 girls who help out when not in school. He got to play and dance with a life size Santa. She also has a little dog that was all dressed up in a fancy dress.
We stayed for two hours, talking and getting to know everyone. We felt really good about it when we left. I had prayed and prayed about the daycare situation before we found her(Ms. M). Afterword I thanked him.
Last night it sleeted and freezing rained, all night long. It was quite messy this morning. I did make it to daycare and work OK. The new daycare is straight up a hill. I'm not sure how that will work. She said she could meet me half way walking. I may just leave them at my mom's then. This is the first time it has done any snowing or icing before Christmas since like '94. That year we had 4 ice storms, the first one before Christmas.
Let me back up to the getting sick that Zack did on Friday night. He also got sick on Saturday eating lunch. I was thinking he was allergic to the cheese he ate. Then on Sunday when he woke up and I laid him down to change his diaper. On Monday at lunch time, from the mucus in his throat. As of yet he has not gotten sick today, thank goodness. He does feel fine other than a runny nose.

So glad to hear about the daycare working out. Now, about the mucus...you are going to think I am crazy...but it really does work. Take a sweet yellow onion and cut it into big chunks. Place it in a pan with about a cup of water and boil it for about 5-7 minutes. Add a teaspoon or two of sugar if you need to and then after it cools give it to him to drink. It cuts the mucus, so much so that you may see mucus in his diaper.
