    Default A little ?

    I donated a slide/swing set (a small one from little tykes) to the church day care that my DS attends. I told them that I wanted to buy them something to get the babies outside some during the day. They were thrilled.

    It has been a while (two months) since then, they dont have it together, which is my fault, I forgot the directions at home

    But they had to level a spot outside to be state approved, and nothing has been done about that. My DH says if they dont do it in a month he will.

    My question is, how do I tell them that without looking pushy or rude? I wouldnt have bought it if I thought he wasnt going to get to go outside, and even though he isnt big enough for it quite yet, I see my DH's point.

    What do you think?

    Just try to bring it up in conversation with the director or teacher. I would probably bring them the directions first, then wait a week or so to ask. Then you could just say "Whatever happened to the slide set I brought?"

    I used to work in childcare and things tend to fall through the cracks when you're running after little ones all day!

    In our state, when weather permits, all children in day care must go outside for a certain amount of time. You might want to check the law in your state.

    I bet you could contact Little Tykes and they would send you the directions, when you have time.
    That was really nice of you!
