45 Things Day Care Workers Say All Too Often

Toddlers are pretty much tiny, drunk people.

Being the keeper of tiny humans can be a very interesting job. You are constantly breaking up arguments, cleaning up messes, trying to keep them safe, and telling them not to do things that are well, sometimes pretty weird. They do and say the strangest things that'll make you wonder what is really going on in their little heads.

1. "No no no, don't do *something crashes to the floor* ....that."

2. "Bubbles in your mouths every body!"

3. "No, we don't eat our friend's snack."

4. "Hands to yourself."

5. "Get off of the table before you hurt yourself."

6. "Why do we even give them spoons?"

7. "We don't put toys in our mouths"

8. "Did you wash your hands?"

9. "Where do we run? Where are we right now?"

10. "Where are your shoes?"

11. "We don't talk like that here."

12. "Go tell them you're sorry"

13. "Get your finger out of your nose"

14. "Inside voices please!"

15. "Every one find a buddy."

16. "Ew ew ew, some body get me a tissue!"

17. "How did your shoes untie already? I just tied them five minutes ago."

18. "We do nice with our hands."

19. "Oh god, it's spaghetti day."

20. "Please, do not put noodles in your hair."

21. "Hold hands until we are on the play ground!"

22. "5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head..."

23. "Do you have to poop?"

24. "Well you should at least try."

25. "Why didn't you go to the potty before we went outside."

26. "If I hear "Let it go" one more time..."

27. "Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog.."

28. "Mommy and Daddy will come back, I promise."

29. "No, no biting!"

30. "She had it first, you'll just have to wait until she's done."

31. "Ew, why are you dipping everything in applesauce?"

32. "Now, are you going to eat the vegetable with the ranch or just the ranch?"

33. "Then why did you say you weren't eating snack?"

34. "Put your arms back in your sleeves."

35. *Five minutes before closing* "Where are your parents??"

36. "I finally got him to sleep, everyone be quiet."

37. *You see one eye open* "Oh no..."

38. "Wow, all your kids are still sleeping!?" (We wish we said this more often)

39. "Don't eat that, it was on the floor!"

40. "Glue the google eyes on here." *puts the eyes anywhere but there*

41. "Stop fighting over who's going to turn off the lights, you'll get a turn tomorrow."

42. "Don't shove so much food in your mouth at once, you'll choke!"

43. "Chew and swallow your food before you get up."

45. "Don't touch anything until we wash your hands!"

As weird as these small people are, they are some of the sweetest beings on the planet. And although they drive you crazy, at the end of the day, they make you love your job.

McNuggets With A Side Of Gender Stereotypes And A Sweet Tea, Please

An open letter to McDonald's from a little boy who just wanted to play with Polly Pocket dolls.


Dear McDonald's,

Home means a few things to me: my family, my friends, my dogs, my bed, my car, and McDonald's. Being a first-year college student, fall semester meant being away from these things for an extended period for the first time. So naturally, when I went home after six weeks of separation from my beloveds and my little sister asked me to drive her to McDonald's, I leaped at the opportunity. Before I know it, we were in the drive-thru, I ordered her McNuggets, and the person running the drive-thru asks, "Is the toy for a boy or for a girl?" I told him it is for a girl, of course, and as we started to pull forward, my little sister said, "Ugh. It's 2018, and they are still asking that question."

Huh. I haven't thought about the controversy and complexity stirred up by that simple question in years, mostly because I've not ordered a Happy Meal in years. But McDonald's asks that question to little kids every single day, and at that moment, a million memories and emotions flooded back to me. How could I forget? Every time we went through the McDonald's drive-thru when I was a child, I always left with flushed cheeks. The person running the drive-thru would ask the question, and I would have to whisper to my mom that I wanted the girl toy. It only took me until now to realize that I was not in the wrong for wanting a Polly Pocket doll, but McDonald's is in the wrong for reinforcing gender stereotypes.

That question is outdated. No kids deserve to feel like they must be squished into different boxes based on their gender and the toys they must like; the only thing this achieves is a whole lot of skeletons in a whole lot of closets. We don't need to force our kids to be ashamed of themselves, especially not their preference in toys; we should love our kids, and if our son wants to play dolls, let's play dolls with him!

My little sister is right, McDonald's, and she's only twelve. There is a lot to learn from the youth, isn't there? It's a simple call to action. Don't let your employees ask if the toy is for a girl or for a boy. Ask if the child wants a Polly Pocket doll or a Hot Wheels car. Or ask me if I want some extra McNuggets; that'll work, too.
