Call at 3pm from brand new day care: Little One was just dropped off from his visit with mom. Caseworker says he is sick, dehydrated, won't drink, etc. He has a temp of 101.5. You need to come get him.

Message on my voice mail on the way to get Little One after telling my school I need a sub for tomorrow: (From cw) Yea, um, Little One is sick. Mom was very concerned at visit and told me his eyes rolled back in his head. She said he is dehydrated and she is VERY concerned. Said some other things too. Just thought I'd let you know. You can take it from here.

Once home, yes he does have a slight fever, but he is otherwise fine. Dehydrated my butt. He is laughing and playing and ate all of his dinner. Once meds for fever kicked in he has been in high gear on top of it. I left cw a long message about how he is NOT dehydrated, he must have just started not feeling well during visit, and how I'm sure his "eyes" were because he was trying not to fall asleep what with not feeling well and the fact that he is now missing his one and only nap for these visits. At his "old" day care, she made sure he took a 1-2 hour nap in the morning on Wednesdays because of visits. They don't have that luxury at this type of day care. He is up when the other kids are up. He was TIRED. That was the biggest problem. Not to mention, where were you when this supposed eye thing even happened??? These are supervised visits! Where were you!?

My problem: another day off work and another huge chunk of my paycheck not making it into the bank. I may as well just get nothing for my next check. This has GOT to end!!!

I am sure teaching has it's perks- but this isn't one of them- I am sorry you have had to miss so much lately- too bad you can't trade some of your summer off days- for a paid one now- Hang in there!! Hope Little One feels better and the bm gets over herself. :)

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
