Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


A Change of Classes at Daycare

I am really frustrated with Kayleigh’s daycare right now.  Now that Kayleigh is walking (mind you it hasn’t even been a month really since she started) they have moved her class at daycare.  She is no longer in the infant classroom and now she is in the Toddlers class.  It started off one day with “field trips” to the big girl room and then it turned into all day fairly quickly.  I have never heard of moving a child’s class in the middle of the year.

When Wesley was in daycare he never moved like this mid-year.  I know some of the reason that I feel this way is because  I don’t want to admit that she is getting bigger.  However, these are the other main reasons that I don’t like this transition:

  1. The daily sheet that she gets sent home is less detailed and I don’t know when or if she’s had a diaper change all day.
  2. She’s the youngest in her class.
  3. I don’t know the teachers at all nor do they know me.  They haven’t made the effort to get to know me when I pick her up each day nor have I.
  4. The relationship that Kayleigh had with her infants teacher is not the same as the relationship that she has with these teachers.
  5. They don’t sleep in cribs—they sleep on cots.  To me, 13 months old is a bit young to sleep on a cot.
  6. We get a list on Friday of the supplies needed for the Toddler room such as bigger sheets to fit the cots that are needed by the next week.   What are we supposed to do with the 5 pack and play sheets that we had to buy at the beginning of the year for the infants room?   When Wesley was in daycare and slept on a cot, we never had to purchase or wash the sheets.  I don’t mind washing them and sending them back in, but since we pay over $100 in resource fees, it seems to me they could purchase such things as sheets.

Do my reasons seem irrational?  Has your child ever been moved mid-year at daycare or preschool?  If so, what was the reason and how did you feel about it?
