Life is Grand!!!

From 8-6 tomorrow my street will be closed to be re-sealed. This is going to make it hard on my mom's (of the kids I watch) in the afternoon. They won't be able to drive down my street to pick up their kids at 4:15 (for the one year old) and at 5:30 (for the red head's). Either they will have to park and walk the two blocks to my street or I will have to walk it (I'd put the 3 oldest boys in the wagon and the baby in a snugli-which I would have to find)...and that doesn't sound very fun to me. I just don't want to have to take 4 boys under 4 down even one block. What a pain...but I don't want my mother's having to walk it either. Maybe I'm just too nice. Maybe they should walk it. I mean it's only for one day! But still, I would feel bad making them walk two blocks to pick up their kids.

Ahhh, what to do, what to do.

They can walk.

It is only for one day and there is no reason that they can't park and walk. If I need to go to the store and they are re-sealing sections of their parking lot, I have to park far and walk.

The parallel that I am going for is that both you and the store have services that the customer is paying for. Yet in every other industry, a small temporary hardship is always placed on the consumer.

It makes much more logical sense to have each person bring one or two kids to you instead of you lugging 4 somewhere.

That's too bad about the street sealing; were the residents consulted about it?

Can I still feel bad for them having to walk?

They sent out notices in the mail Cap't along with a second notice at my door. They also have little signs along the streets that are to be sealed.

You can feel bad, but don't let it stay around too long... you aren't doing anything wrong.

i'd try and meet them part way, if they have a cell phone, they can call once they actually arrive

If I were one of the moms picking up my child, it wouldn't bother me a bit to walk for a biggie!
