A daycare worker was fired for writing a message on a toddler’s belly in marker saying he was out of diapers.
Heather Chisum, 23, posted photos of her son Milo on Monday night. They show the boy’s torso covered in a message saying ‘I’m out of diapers’, with the ink still visible even ‘after scrubbing several times.’
Chisum, of Sanibel Island, Florida, voiced her outrage on the post after her son returned home from the Children’s Education Center of the Islands, where the daycare worker used her son’s stomach to deliver a message.
Written on his belly was: ‘Mom I’m out of diapers pls read my report,’ which was an apparent reference to a daily report put in Milo’s lunchbox each day by daycare workers.
‘(The report) says what mood he was in for the day, what times they changed his diapers, and if he needs diapers or wipes,’ Chissum wrote.
‘I’m a single mom with a full time job and two very young children. SUE ME FOR NOT READING THE REPORT EVERY SINGLE DAY,’ she continued.
‘I guess yesterday they wrote on his report that he needs diapers, and I failed to see that.’Cuba and Jamaica struck by their 'biggest earthquake on record'
Chisum said she was upset because she sees ‘several teachers at drop off and several at pickup’ every day and believes they should have just told her in person that her son needed more diapers.
She claimed it was not the first time her son has returned home with writing on him.
‘They’ve done this several months ago too,’ she wrote.
Cindy Carter DeCosta, the executive Director of the Children’s Education Center of the Islands, called the incident a ‘breach of our professional ethics on the part of the teacher.’
‘The school has taken immediate action to remove the teacher from the school. We are reviewing protocols already in place to ensure that nothing like this occurs again.’Chilling moment unsuspecting child let smirking stranger into her home to molest her
But Chisum said she does not plan to bring her son back to the school, even after Decosta met with her and said they are welcome to remain.
‘I’m so beyond frustrated. I will no longer take them there,’ she told The News-Press.

‘No way, no how is this appropriate,’ said Susan Block, CEO of the coalition.
‘Our staff will investigate. I suspect in any group of individuals you’ll get one bad actor. That’s what we will investigate for assurances that it won’t happen again.’
