So busy tonight with orders, online inventory, stocking my shelves (which first involved clearing some shelves to make room for stocking) that I never blogged in time to officially meet the NaBloPoMo requirements. Fail. But! I still haven't been to sleep, so Scott says it still counts. A day is from when you wake up until you go to bed, so he says. Let's just go with that, shall we?
childminder I get the best of both worlds - I get to work and make money, and at the same time stay home with my kids. I'm so thankful that I don't have to put my kids in childcare, so I can go back to work. I know childminding certainly isn't for everyone, so I'm very glad it's for me!
I've been very fortunate so far with childminding. I've had some really great kids to look after. I've had lovely, sweet, spirited little people surrounding me for the last year and a half. Currently, I'm only doing before and after school care, plus Saturdays. It's working out nicely. I love little tiny children, and I am still looking to take on another small person, but I also get such great joy out of looking after older kids. All the older kids I've had in the past and all the ones I have now are simply awesome kids. I love them all. My kids love them too, and they all seem to like my kids back. It works well. I enjoy playing games with them, making things with them, and just talking to them.
This is my job, guys! Hanging out with awesome kids is my JOB! I am so thankful for that!
(I'm not so thankful, however, that having only been back to work one full week, I'm already booked in for my care inspection next Tuesday. Wanna give me a minute to get back into it, please?! Better get this paperwork done asap!)
