    hugs!

    you're in a desireable area for HDCP so you shouldn't have to wait too long hopefully!

    maybe next time don't hold the spots for as long?

    this has seriously emotionally wrecked me. It is 1300.00 a month..OMG!! I am so screwed right now. I know I will fill the spots, but as you dcp know, people look for down the road, not usually right now. I know things will work out, but my dh is getting pissed I know, having to pay for everything right now

    {{Hugs}} I find a lot of people start looking now for DC so I hope your spots won't stay open for long. Advertise like mad. That is the one cruddy thing about what we do and the risk we take. Things will get better.

    i remember well the stresses of a hdc. i stressed like mad when kids shuffled. it's especially hard because it's competely out of your hands and has nothing to do with the quality of the service you provide.
    factors in other people's lives are the deciding factor on your basic numbers, and that is really difficult.
    hang in there mama. the right crew will come along and you will be able to breath easy again.
    so sorry you have this stress.
    xoxo

    That is kind of strange she notifies you one day before she her kids are to start...what are the odds that she just found out that day. I know it is possible, just seems odd.
    It was so nice of you to hold a spot that long, seems not fair that it didn't work out. I bet the next set of kids will be an even better match for you. You know what they say “When one door closes another door opens“ I sometimes feel I bend over backwards to accommodate my parents and in the end I feel I don't reap the benefits. I know I need to start looking out more for my family and less for their family. I am not saying changing the way I care for their child, just maybe not be so accommodating and more of a stickler to my rules.
    Best of luck to you.
