Hey, I’m Spunky.
Well, at least that’s what my friends call me. My actual name is Frieda but no one calls me that except for my mother and my gynecologist.
I’m 63 years old and I run a daycare business.
I have had this business for about 40 years. Ten years ago I took a giant step and created a website for my daycare. Believe me, that was big time for this old girl.
And then recently I decided to get on the blogging bandwagon and start my own blog to link to the website. I am rocking it now, girls.
So I was coming up with the URL for my blog site and I just wanted SpunkysChildare .com. Got it all approved and registered, and then I noticed that I had left the S off the front and it said punky’schildcare.com.
I kid you not. That’s really what happened.
Punky’s Childcare? Like, welcome to my daycare, where every child is puking? Omg! I couldn’t believe it.
You wouldn’t believe the grief that I got for that mistake. Oh well. I had to say to heck with it cuz I sure wasn’t going to jump through all the hoops again to fix it!
It’s kind of funny. And maybe it brings me families with a sense of humor. Or keeps away the ones that too easily get their panties in a wad.
So anyway that’s me, Punky or Spunky. And I have a childcare business.
Every day I welcome a bunch of little ones into my facility, which is
an actual building with different rooms–a general room with kid-friendly furniture and cubbies and bean bag chairs, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a play yard outside.
I imagine this blog is going to take on a shape of its own as I figure out what I want to do with it. Feel free to give me suggestions or let me know what you want to hear about.
I think I’ll probably use it for stories about the kids, for educational tips, maybe some health and wellness suggestions as they relate to kids, and then maybe just overall general Information .
I’ll probably use it also to help promote some of the local businesses around here. Especially the ones that have done work for me and that I can recommend based on the first-hand experience.
For example, I’m thinking about a catering service I use, a dust-free tile removal company I use, a carpet cleaning service, a local printer, a florist, and a pizza delivery service.
I hope this blog is going to be inspirational and entertaining and informative.
Okay, well, my day is about to start. I hear little ones already starting to arrive, so I gotta get in gear, get off this keyboard, and get to work .
I’ll catch you later.
