a new job means a new baby to love! i love being a nanny, and as a newlywed it is great birth control :) i never really thought of myself as a nanny. in college i developed a very ambitious attitude and had the mentality that i was going to get a "big girl job". however upon graduation i realized i did not have a job. but nannying position opened up, and i thought "hey i like kids!" i love that nannying gives you an insight of what being a mother is like. and though i do not want children for a while, it is a nice tease. you are with kids all day and then you get your nights and weekends free. truly is the best of both worlds. though i do not want to be a nanny for the rest of my life (and most likely will just nanny through graduate school) i really love my job and love that it is my job to take care of children.
now fast forward.
nannying has been my full time job over just over a year. first year was so much fun. i learned a lot about who i am, my so call "parenting style", and got a true insight of what is is like talking care of three girls.
now we are at the beginning of year two. new family. one sweet little girl.
this cute little one and i are starting our adventures together and i am excited to see what this next year is like as we venture the city, grow, go do new things, see art, play outside, try new foods! and meet new friends. l\
thanks to everyone who had me in their thoughts and prayers as i was searching for a new position!
are you a nanny or a mother? what is your favorite part?
