I work for a college professor so I am on "Winter Break" right now. I will have lots of stories to write about once I go back to work. Trust me!! I do work full time. At least 40 hours a week as well as occasional date nights for Mr. and Mrs. Sometimes when I tell people I am a nanny, they assume that I only work a few hours a week. People also often assume that I am just doing this until I can find "something better" or "more professional". That drives me crazy! I chose to be a nanny. Even though I have my teaching degree, I do not plan on using it any time soon. I LOVE my job :)
People also figure I just play with play-doh, color, watch movies, go to the zoo, play at the park, and eat gold fish and mac & cheese. Well, that part is kind of true!! Ha, I do have a lot of fun at my job, but there is also sooo much responsibility!! I know everyone has responsibilites at their job, but I have two lives in my care. It makes me very aware of how I act, what I say, how I drive, and basically everything that I do. I have noticed that they pick up on every little thing I say and do. I like to think that I will have a lasting impression on their lives :)
One of my favorite things to do with the kiddos is bake!
|I love setting up a cookie decorating table so the kids can just go crazy!|
|Some peanut butter blossoms we made at Christmas time!|
We also play board games a lot!! And NO, I do not just let the kids win. Ha, they need to learn how to be a good loser too. I will admit though, the 6 year old beats me most of the time...
Yes, I do have lots and lots fun at work! Although I have my share of "poopy" days at work. And I say that literally!! Don't worry, I will not go into detail...use your imagination. I know that this job is preparing me for when I have my own children :) Stay tuned for some fun stories!
