Especially after my day at work today, mine is totally insurance companies!!! Technically, it is not my job to deal with insurance companies. I received absolutely no training in this during my master’s degree program. But it has somehow become a huge part of my job. I feel like I spend all my time trying to sort through proceedures and writing letters and appeals. And then parents get mad at me when the insurance company does something wrong or denies things or just takes a long time. GARGAGAGGAGAGGG!!

In a fight, it wouldn’t even be a contest. They’d squish me like a bug. And have. Many times. But perhaps one day my burning rage will transofrm me into a single payor super hero that can vanquish them to the depths of hell! But don’t hold your breath.

If you want your kid to take naps without interruptions from other children, then perhaps a daycare is not the place for your child.  Just sayin’.

It must get exhausting constantly trying to correct internet strangers’ perceived flaws.

JenGirl:   Yep.  No sense of humor here.  Especially when it comes to making fun of anyone (man, woman, child) who has a weight problem.  If I were to refer to an adult as a “meatball”, you can bet that I’d get it up the wazoo about how dare I fat shame someone.  What makes it ok to call a baby (not your own) a meatball?  So, yeah … no sense of humor when someone calls an overweight child names like meatball.  Call your own kid a meatball and that’s fine.  Don’t call anyone else’s kid a meatball. 

 

Adding that the OP has had a couple of issues with the daycare (losing her kids diapers, a child keeping another child up).  She has options to find a new daycare if she’s less than thrilled with what’s going on at her current daycare.  And, yeah … it’s a daycare and kids cry/scream/get each other sick. Don’t like it?  Find an alternative.

iarebridezilla:  Sorry but fat shaming anyone let alone an 8 month old baby is just sad.

It doesn’t matter if it is a failed attempt at humour, you should be called on it. Making jokes about issues like this makes it seem to society that it is ok to “pick” on people because of their physical differences. I really hpope your child never has to go through this but then maybe you might get some compassion and understanding.

I think my cousin’s kid could have been meat ball kid when he was younger. His family has a history of having HUGE babies, (11 pounds plus at birth) and he was as big as a 2 year old by 6 months. My Fiance still refers to him as “Gigantor baby” even though he is now 2, and while bigger for 2, he is of a more appropriate size. I laugh. Most babies have some pudge and will grow out of it, and I don’t think it’s all that wrong to be surprised when there is a baby who is a bit bigger. To be honest “gigantor” is one of the most adorable babies I have seen. 🙂

I have a few nemesises right now. One we actually call Nemesis Cat. He comes to our door that my cat can see out of, and they hiss and growl at eachother until Fiance or I get up and tell them to knock it out. I have to defend my cat from this “intruder.”

The second is creeping charlie growing in my flower beds. I went scortched earth on this stuff last year. Every trick in the book was used. I thought it was gone, but now it’s growing back again. I may bring out the napalm this year. I’m sure my home owner’s insurance will understand.

I work at a daycare, and as much as I love my job and know I can trust the teachers, I hope I NEVER have to send my kids to a daycare. Just a personal hope of mine, as I’m sure it is for a lot of moms.

I get the lighthearted intent behind this thread, but it’s not right to start a thread on a public forum for the sole purpose of making fun of someone else’s overweight baby. I hope that mother isn’t a member here and sees you referring to her child as a “meatball.” It’s not just innocent fun, or a case of certain posters not having a sense of humor — you’re making fun of a BABY. You could have just said, “there’s a new child at my daughter’s daycare who is having a hard time adjusting and is keeping my daughter from napping,” why does the baby’s appearance have to play into it?

Not that it matters — I’m sure you and your cronies will tell me that I’m just a stick in the mud without a sense of humor because I don’t want to laugh and bitch about an unfortunately overweight eight month old child.

iarebridezilla: I think you may have underestimated…

I thought of another one! Onions! I am super sensistive to them. I now make my husband do all the onion chopping while I’m in another room. This weekend I had to chop an onion for Japanese Curry and my husband wasn’t home and I was crying so hard I couldn’t see before I could even get the thing peeled! But through perserverance and a very large butcher knife – I totally won that fight. In the future, I will likely continue to use my husband as a shield to their evil.
