i love being a nanny. it is the greatest job out there. you get to take care of cute little kids that basically become yours with the amount of time that you spend with them, and still get your nights and weekends free! best of both worlds people. as i have been with my current nanny family for a while now, there has been some employment changes and i am going to have to look for a new job.
it is just tough. i love the girls i nanny for. they are such a big part of my life. when you are a nanny the kids kinda become the center for your world. and i cannot tell you how many times chad has to listen to stories about the little ones i nanny. or my sisters.. or those times when i am out and about in public and think of all of these cute little stories that happened during the day and tell random people "oh my nanny kids...."
i love my job. i love being a nanny. you get paid to do crafts, go to the zoo, seek out museums, and you naturally have someone to spilt a cookie with (there are very few times when the little ones don't want cookies!) you become a teacher, a leader, a lover, in a whole new way.
and now i understand (half way) why mothers love being mothers.
working with children is so rewarding and i am so blessed to call it my full time job.
but please be saying some prayers for me as i am in transition of looking for a new job. it is going to be difficult finding a new family that i feel so connected with and will be even harder to leave my current family. thanks!
