Well, yesterday was it. Girlie has officially gotten the boot from day care as of Monday! She had two incidents of biting and scratching Wednesday, which I didn't know about because she was picked up by the case aide for her visit and I got her from there. Then yesterday she had 3 more! They did allow her to return today.
I called the cw when I got her yesterday but she wasn't in. I asked to talk to the supervisor. I told him the situation and that I could not take a day off to run around, get medical forms and applications, pay a registration fee, etc. I said that this is something we've been working on and they've known about since she started there almost two months ago. The person I want her to go to still doesn't have her license, and won't until AT LEAST the 17th. I said she has no where to go as of Monday and I needed them to figure this out as I just couldn't right now. I have reported every single incident to them, all they've done is observe her one day and call to have her screened for help through Child and Family connections. They had to know this was coming.
This morning I still hadn't heard from anyone and called around 10:15. I left a msg and the cw called back shortly later. She said that they were talking to DCFS to see if they could get the person's license through quickly as they hated for her to transition so much. I completely agree. The cw then called back at 2:30 to say that DCFS won't budge and do I have any family or anyone in the area whom they could pay to watch her? What!!?? Are you kidding? Why do you think I've already used 6 of my 10 sick days so far this year??? I have NO ONE to watch the kids! DUH! So she said they would figure it out. They better, or I guess Girlie is accompanying them to work at 7am Monday morning! :)
