My name is Sarah and I am a Day Care Mum
I look after 4 children a day in my home.
We play, we laugh, we learn, we connect, we sing, we dance, we grow.
But there are a few things you may not know about my job.
~ The secret truth of a Day Care Mum ~
I work in one room all day long with 4 children under 5 with no adult interaction what so ever. Sometimes I may or may not put the toys in hilarious positions and laugh with myself about them. Woody and I were totes chilling this day watching the kids do puzzles.
Every day we have 'dance time' and at my Kindy we rock it out. No Hi-5 or Wiggles here. We listen to all the latest "clean" pop songs and my kindy kids groove like nobodies business. We pop, lock and roll all over our 'dancefloor' and I may or may not pretend I'm on stage and rock it out harder than all of the 3 year olds put together ;-)
Our favourite at the moment is...
Don't tell me you didn't do a little toe tap or shoulder shimmy to that songs!
My children squat. Yep every day we get our body squats on. I think a while back during our dance time I did a few squats to change it up a bit and well they remembered and now every day as part of their dance routine they all squat. It is so hilarious, totally unplanned yet completely encouraged for the pure cuteness of it all. These kids get low let me tell you.
I have 'Kindy Couples' in our group. A couple of the children have paired off and have found their first true loves. Its ridiculous adorable and they literally spend all of their time with each other. They get so excited when each of them arrive at 'Kindy' and the love that they show for each other during the day is just priceless.
The truth is I am 27 years old and have permanent wrinkles on my forehead!
This is because of my Kindy Faces.
Number 1: My 'Discipline' Face - "Oh my goodness me I hope you are using your walking feet when you are in my Kindy room" "Oh Dear I hope you are using your gentle hands" "Oh O we need to share with our friends here at Kindy"
Number 2: My 'Encouraging' Face - "Can you please pass me the BLUE block?" "Where's your nose?" "How do you spell your name?" "How many flowers are in the garden?" "Are you going to do a poo on the potty?"
Number 3: My 'Celebration' Face - "Horray Horray Horray You did a wee on the potty woo woo woo" "Woohoo you walked to the door instead of running woohoo" "Horray for eating your apple" "Good Job passing that toy"
My eyebrows are constantly raised! ALL DAY...EVERY DAY ;-)
The biggest truth about my job, which is definitely NOT a secret at all, is that I am absolutly 100% IN LOVE with my job. It is so funny calling it a job, it sure doesn't feel like it. Every single day I get to play and hang out with 4 beautiful souls who bring so much joy, love and happiness into my life. I could not and do not want to think about doing anything else.
Being a Day Care Mum ROCKS!
and that's the truth!
Peace, Love and Hope
