What $700 a Month of Daycare Tuition Gets You

Me: So, do you like going to daycare?

Little Guy: Yeah!

Me: Do you see all your friends at daycare?

Little Guy: Yeah!

Me: Who are your friends?

Little Guy: Mia and Carson and Noah and Jake!

Me: Wow, you have lots of friends!

Little Guy (spreading his hands wide): Yeah, and Carson has a BIIIIIIGGG penis!


Little Guy (in a whisper): And Little Guy has a little penis. In his diaper.

That was so not where I saw the conversation going.

Um, WTF is right.

Ya, for a mere 800 a month I get a child who comes home covered in crusted chocolate pudding, high on sugar with a shitty diaper.

It's bliss isn't it?

OMG, I didn't see THAT one, either!

"Tune in tomorrow, when we talk about itchy butts, pink floyd music at rest time and how to get spit up out of your blankie."

Oy. Did you laugh at your little guy?

Mamalee: yeah, I couldn't help cracking up. I don't know WHY on earth he said it. I have a feeling they might get their diapers changed together or something.

He also informed me that Carson has big boy underwear and that he wants to get big boy underwear too. I am so not looking forward to potty training, but it sounds like he is getting close to being ready.

OMG I actually did spit my tea over that one! (wipes off monitor)

My princess recently spent an entire day talking to her "penis". Just chattering away "Oh penis, you're so cute penis, I loves you penis, kiss, kiss, hug." Once I regained consciousness I asked her to show me her "penis" and she held up a stuffed dog and said "here's Penis". It was about a week later that I finally found out her preschool class named their class (stuffed) dog "Venus".

Wow....really, wow.....that's a conversation and a half!
Also, $800 per MONTH.....sheesh, kindergarden for my wee one is €88 per month, now I know for a fact it's a good deal!

Yeah, daycare is expensive! Believe it or not, the $700 a month (actually $675, I rounded up) is for just THREE days a week. No joke.

Oh my! That is quite hilarious. I didn't think the measuring wars started quite this early. LOL.

Hi Mommy,

My first visit and I [icked a good day! (found you through smiling mom.)

Hilarious. I have two in daycare three days a week and I can't even confess what that costs. But with material like that, it seems all worth it, doesn't it?

My youngest, 16 months, likes to tug on his penis after bath, and calls it "gentle" now, since I exhorted him to "be gentle!" Oy.

Dude, what part of the country are you IN??? Come out here to the desert where your son can discover his inferiority at a much more reasonable monthly rate.

See ya in AZ!

That's why my daughter is with Grandma, lol. That, and she's also FREE. Wow, we are so lucky to not have to pay those prices! Though we do miss out on cute stories like this one.

That's what makes motherhood such a delightful thing to blog about, yes?

Wait until he's old enough to do homework and you'll see him at the kitchen table and you'll have to say, "GET YOUR PENCIL OUT OF YOUR PANTS!" That's "fun" too.

Goes to show you they never outgrow the whole penis obsession -- with their own, others, etc.

Um. I really don't know what to say. Playing doctor? Maybe Little Guy is headed for pre-med.

oh my gosh...that is too funny...that is, unless Carson is an ADULT and not a kiddy friend - ok, scary thought...but anyway, that was very cute!

Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
