I have been toying with the idea of starting this blog, because Infant-Toddler caregiving is my passion and my career focus. I've stalled on the idea because of a lot of different reasons...Among those reasons are:
I've come to realize these things during this global pandemic, in which I lost my job because of the COVID shut downs, and am now working with a wonderful group of hilarious ten and eleven year olds.
I have been thinking about why I feel so sad, when I am so blessed. I have been thinking about the children that were in my class and how grown they are now, almost a year later. I have been thinking about their sweet smiles, and missing those beautiful laughs, and even the sweet sound of crying. I miss my job with infants and toddlers.
So why would I start this blog?
Because during this pandemic, I have also evaluated my worth. Despite my self-doubts, of my worth and my skill-set, parents and teachers have reached out to me for advice. I constantly find myself sharing tips, tricks, and knowledge with teachers and parents alike. My Instagram feed is full of teaching sites, caregiving pages, child health, emotional guidance, and all things child development.
Even when my career has taken a weird turn for this temporary time, I still have channeled all of my energy, brain-power, and focus into learning about infants, toddlers, and their growth, behaviors, and health patterns.
This is my skill-set. I do NOT know everything, but I do know a lot, and I do have a natural affinity.
So here I am.
-I wish you well, today,
