Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Friday, August 14, 2009

I'm on- official opening day is Monday, September 7th! You will be there to witness history. For now, on that opening day, it'll be just me, Tyler, and Chase...but it's all good! ;) I'm not fretting. Gotta start somewhere. One baby step at a time.

I spent a good hour thinking of a name for the daycare yesterday night, thinking of all sort of combinations, and I came up with Bright Star Preschool. Then I went online to find that there is already a Bright Star Preschool in California somewhere, but I'm not deterred! I love the name and I'm sticking to it! Bright Star-It makes me think of a kiddo who just shines a little brighter than the rest. There is something special about him. He is happy, self assured, and confident. That's what I want to see from the kids who are in my care. They will feel confident because they will feel loved. They will be self assured knowing that they are learning about the world around them and figuring things out. They will feel happy knowing they are safe.

I'm truly am excited. I know some people think I'm being crazy, but I've been thinking about this since Tyler was born. About four years ago, I was a working mom and looking for the BEST place for Tyler. Nothing mattered. I would have driven anywhere, would have paid any money to know that Tyler was in the best care possible. Since then, he has gone to a church preschool, a home daycare situation, a montessori, and a regular preschool. Every time he would enter a new school, I would think to myself, "I can do this, and I know I can do it better." I hope parents who come to me know that I am 100% serious about this. I would NEVER, I repeat- NEVER- take Tyler out of a preschool if I didn't think I could do a better job in preparing him for the future. I hope that makes sense.

I guess that is why I was a bit taken aback at how quickly the man who came over yesterday agreed for me to watch his son. In a way, I wanted him to grill me. I wanted him to shoot questions at me and realize from my answers that my home would be the best care to place his son. He didn't seem as SERIOUS as I am about this. He probably thought, it's just daycare. Somewhere to drop off my kid while I'm looking for work. NO!!!! I want parents who GET IT. Who can understand the vision...who can FEEL the energy. I'm pumped and I want parents who are pumped up with me! Ok, now I'm sure some of you are thinking I'm going a bit overboard here...but that's what I mean, I'M NOT!!!

Ok, enough ranting here today. I better go do some marketing or something. Or get the rooms ready! Or get all the paperwork in order.

Can't wait till the day I am looking at bustling room with kids...
