It's National Provider Appreciation Day

Back in the day, I ran a daycare in my home.  I had three children of my own and watched up to five other children while their parents went to work.  After two years of it, I decided it wasn't the life path for me.  I applaud anyone who can watch someone else's kids and take care of them like their own.  It's not an easy job, and some parents certainly don't make it any easier.

My sister has operated a daycare out of her home for over twenty years.  She apparently has the calling that I didn't have.

It's Provider Appreciation Day.  Take the time today to at least thank the person who is helping care for your child.  And, if you really want to show your appreciation, give them a nice gift or treat.
