I NEEEED to rant.
So those who read my lj know the struggle I've been having with T's daycare. Because of the boom in Calgary there's a huge labor shortage, and because of the labor shortage my son's daycare has 2 options: 1. hire anyone who walks in the door, and don't rock the boat with them so they stay, 2. ask half the kids to leave because they don't have enough workers to meet required teacher vs children ratios, 3. shut down entirely.
So they've been choosing option 1. And it sucks because the girls they are hiring are fucking stupid. There's a whole big rant that I won't go into again about how one of them lost my son and didn't know where in the daycare he was, (thankfully in the 5s room, but they shouldn't just lose a child like that), they put his shoes on the wrong feet, they put his pullups on BACKWARDS.
Today there was a girl who got called in to the daycare in Ts room to pick up her son because her son had coughed so hard that he puked. She asked them "Well did you give him his cough medicine at 12 so this wouldn't happen?" and no, they didn't give it to him at all, even though she filled out the required medicine sheet detailing when it was to be taken and how much to be given. She went off on them about how irresponsible it was to ignore and that her kid wouldn't have puked if they had just fucking listened to what they were legally required to do, and follow the medicine sheets (which btw aren't hidden away and easily forgotten they're taped up to the cupboards in plain view)
And my MAIN RANT, for the last 4-5 days Trey has been miserable, his stomach has been bloated, he's had such bad gas pains that he's been falling down can't get up holding onto his stomach and SCREAMING, which y'all, my son doesn't do, he's the quietest bug in the world, even if he's badly sick or hurting he just lays down and whimpers, he hasn't screamed like this since he was a baby. I haven't slept in 3 days because the last 3 nights he's been up every 10-15 minutes screaming and crying before he passes out again, and that's with gas relief drops.
At first I thought it was raisins I was giving Trey, but it wasn't, because I cut them out and it's still happening. We haven't changed his diet at all. I asked Trey if they were giving him milk at daycare and at first he said no, but today he said yes. And it was confirmed by the fact that after 2 HOURS of screaming in pain tonight curled in fetal position he puked, and he puked curdled milk all over the floor.
He is very, very badly lactose intolerant. Which is written on every single sheet of his at daycare, and stuck on stickers on the cupboards because it's important.
And they've been giving him milk.
I had to rant about it, I'm just so fucking pissed off right now. I'm paying 700$ a month for completely incompetent asshats to ignore my kid, do everything wrong, and make him so sick that we were going to take him into the ER tonight until he puked and then passed out, once it got out of his system he was better and is sleeping soundly right now, though I know he'll probably wake up a few more times tonight with the after effects, and for them to have absolutely no clue where he was. What if he WASN'T in the 5s room, what if he had wandered through their door (which is always open) and somehow gotten outside, the daycare is right on a busy street.
I'm just. I'm at my wits end and I'm filing a complaint with the liscencing board and the director of the daycare to try and get this incompetent fool fired, I do not feel safe with her taking care of my son. What if he was deathly allergic to nuts and she had ignored the sheets and given him peanut butter?
