B is for Babysitting

I've been watching children for a good portion of my life and as of late, I've realized that it isn't something I would like to do for the rest of my life or even for the next year or two.

Don't get me wrong, I love children and I think they are amazing but after the 7+ years of working with children, I think it's more than enough.

Babysitting isn't always so awful. Today, the girls and I made books out of paper...all day. it was rather relaxing compared to what we usually do when the Older One is home.

  1. Babysitting is a tough gig! Odd, but people respect people who raise special dogs, more than human beings! Do the best you can and work on finding what excites you~ You are doing a great service-don't think otherwise! I use to work in a Navy Daycare...I know that feeling.

    1. I love watching kids because of their crazy ideas and the stories they come up with. It can be tough though. I can't even imagine working at a daycare.

      Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I was a nanny for 12 years. And then I had had enough. I loved it for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was that I wasn't cooped up in an office all day. But after a while, raising other people's kids and having to follow their rules just didn't appeal anymore.

    I actually enjoy kids a lot more, now, that I don't do that anymore :)

    1. It's starting to lose it's appeal for me as well. I love the girls but I have a hard time connecting with them. I think I work better with boys because I like the games they play...I've never been a doll person.
