Recently two families moved out of the district so they will not be able to come any longer once school starts. Another child is going into 7th grade so her mom wants to give her a chance to try staying at home by herself in the mornings. So, I am in need of new children.
I paid for my ad to be in the paper for a month and last night I was freaking out that half the time is over and I still had not gotten a single call. Adam and my Mom both reminded me that parents in this area always wait until the last minute. I went through the same thing two years ago.
Then this morning I got a call from a mom with two school-age children. She set up a time to come talk to me and have a tour.
She came at 5:30 and stayed for about fifteen minutes. I think it went well, but it's hard to tell for sure. Since she left I have been going over everything in my head and thinking of things I forgot to say. I hate that I always do that. I obsess and worry. What I should be doing is reminding myself that I have a very good record of parents signing their children up to come here after tours.
I gave her all the paperwork and she said she would let me know tomorrow either way.
I am so nervous. I really need this.
