No this is not a post of what many of you will think.
Currently I am working what you could call two jobs. As many of you know I work in a small mom and pop pharmacy. I have been there since 2003. About a month ago I started working with my mom’s friend. She had twin boys in April. Before I started working with her we would go over there every Sunday afternoon for a few hours to visit. I started helping her out on May 17. I go there on Mondays and Wednesdays. I wish I could post pictures on here but they are not my children and I can’t broadcast them on the internet. I absolutely adore spending time with them. Sometimes I wish I could be there every day with them, even through the dirty diapers, the crying, and the spitting up.
I have been told many times that this is my calling to work with children. First, I am not starting school all over again. Second, I could not teach a child to save my life. I am an “If you want something done right do it yourself” kind of person. I am also very hands on and would rather teach myself how to do something rather than learn from someone else.
I really consider myself lucky because I really enjoy this and even though I am getting paid I do not care how much or how little. Some days I have stayed after the time I was supposed to “leave” just so I could stay with them longer. I am not getting paid for that extra time but I do not care. I can not wait to go see them this weekend even though I will see them on Monday. I was babysitting for almost 10 years until I had to give it up because every weekend that I would be babysitting my friends would be going out and I could never join them. I also felt like I was too old to do it. Yes it is great money and I do not care how much or how little I get paid I just did not have the desire to do it anymore. This time I feel it is different. Until I find myself a “real” job I will probably be doing this! Certainly not complaining!
If you have not seen a picture of them and have my cell phone number I can text you a picture. Sorry this is how I am doing it but I am not sending out a picture to random people I do not know.
