My job is awesome for many reasons. For one, I spend all day in pajamas (they prefer to call them scrubs, more professionally sounding. But, let's be real. They're pajamas.) I spend many hours a week coloring, eating imaginary food, pretending to fall asleep and snore, dancing, singing, etc. Basically, I'm paid to act like a fool and my kids think it's the coolest thing ever. Now, I'd be lying if I said it's all fun and games. As with any job (especially those working with little ones) there are challenges. I'd say there's at least 10-15 breakdowns (I admit, 25% come from me, the teacher), 100 diaper changes, many days that I feel like I'm a broken record- repeating myself until I lose my voice, and I'm always placing my hands in some unknown sticky/wet substance. But, when I sit with those kids and they can tell me shapes, colors, numbers, letters, animals (all by the age of 2, mind you!) I am reminded why I love what I do. All the while, I get to love on these kids and share with them the eternal love of Christ. A bad day can't ruin my career choice.
How about our first wedding anniversary is in 2 weeks?! I can't believe it's been a year. Goodness, what a year it has been. Husband has a surprise getaway planned the weekend of our anniversary. Sadly, I can't get off work. So on the 11th (the actual date), I'll be celebrating with 7 toddlers. Yay. But, that's okay. I'm ready to see what Husband has planned!
I have successfully lost 4 pounds. WooHoo! How? I have no clue. Working? Running around, chasing kids? Eating quick tunafish and cracker meals? Who cares? I feel great!
Husband bought me Lion King on DVD and we had the best time watching it. I haven't seen it in years and seriously, you'd think it was the first time I ever saw it with all my laughing (and crying!) Such a good one!
Oh man, I have never been so excited about our future. I feel like we finally got all the junk out of our lives and now we can see the outcome of following Christ through everything. These next few months could reveal a lot of new roads and I'm so ready!
Happy 3 day weekend! Remember why we celebrate, as you celebrate!
