I'm pretty upset right now and just wanted to vent (DH is currently out of town for work and unreachable).
When I got home with DD (who's almost 9 months old) a little while ago, I noticed that part of her top lip/corner of her mouth looked red. Upon a closer look, I realized she had a small burn mark on her lip (about as long as the width of a fingernail).
No one at daycare said anything to me about a burn when I picked DD up, and because the lights were still dimmed for naptime, I didn't immediately notice the burn.
Once noticed the burn, I called her daycare to find out what happened, and when the owner finally called me back, she said that one of the teachers thought she had heated up DD's lunch too much (I guess after DD probably reacted in pain!?), and the owner just forgot to mention it to me.
I'm upset and pissed. Upset that my little girl was hurt (and especially upset that it was an injury that could have been avoided) and pissed that the owner was so cavalier about the whole thing. Seriously? I'm sure there were a lot of tears from DD--she's *super* vocal when she's just frustrated, so I'm sure that she let them know she was hurt. How do you "forget" that?
(And I'm also hoping there's no scar--I scar pretty easily, so I'm hoping DD didn't inherit that from me.)
I'm done for the school year in just a couple of weeks, so I'm going to leave her there for now...but this (along with several other small things that have been building over the past few months) looks like I'm definitely going to be on the hunt for a new daycare...
