I watch 2 kids about once a week for 2-3 hours. They are almost 2 and 4. I was supposed to be there this morning at 10am (mom and/or dad are usually home when I watch them). I had my alarm set but didn't even hear it. I feel horrible that I overslept and the mom called me 15 mins. after the time I was supposed to be there. I apologized and she said she'd check with her husband on another time that may work today. Then she texts saying: It's okay, it just kind of messed up the schedule for our day, there is not really another time that works, husbands car is in the shop so we will have to get it this afternoon and son has swimming so it's not going to work. I will look at the calendar and let you know when there is another day that works. I say: Do you want me to put your daughter down for her nap? I don't mind so you can get car and you can pay me less today for the mishap? I feel terrible. She says: We have to wait for them to call us and tell us when it's ready. We will just take a rain check, I will just put Daughter down for an earlier nap. No worries we will just see you a different day. I say: I am so sorry I messed up your schedule. I feel horrible. This never happens. I appreciate you saying you will call me again. My sincere apologies. I know how frustrating this can be. I'm free next week any day but Wed. morning and this Sunday. She says: Okay I will let you know, I am not sure our schedule for next week yet. I apologize again. I feel terrible. Anyone have anything similar happen? I hope she is true to her words and calls again. I feel awful!
