Thanks for all the feedback on the kitty question! I think I have some aspects to consider a bit more before making a final decision. I'm a person that thinks and stews about something before going for it- especially when it comes to big purchases or someone cutting bangs :P . With my boys being so stinking sick this week I haven't had much time to think about it.
This brings me to my next point. My boys have been getting sick a lot lately so I am making a new regulation for my salon. I will no longer allow children that aren't receiving hair services to come to play during a parent's or siblings appointment. They may sit in the front room with the parent and/or sibling but may not enter the rest of the house. I can't continue cancelling appointments due to my children's risk of infecting your children with whatever they're suffering from. I still reserve the right to cancel in order to care for my children, however, if they are well enough to have a sitter I can still do appointments. Also I feel that if I am paying someone to watch my children it is unfair to that sitter to be asked to watch extra kids without extra pay. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but it is something that had to change. We made it through a long winter of cancellations, changes, and rescheduling and I think this will help with your schedule and mine. I appreciate your business, your friendship, and all your kids. Thanks again for letting me do what I love.
