(March SOL) Easy, breezy beautiful…children

“Who knew raising children was hard?!”

“I sure didn’t as a teacher and after school nanny!”

Said no one ever..

I could always see how difficult and taxing having a job and being a parent can be from observing the full-time working parents at school.

BUT now that I am working two jobs (teaching 3rd grade during the day and nannying for two kids in the afternoon/evening) – I am starting to feel worn out constantly. My brain is dead from putting on a “fun front” all day!

Also, anything you bring with you will become sticky and covered in germs 😮 My car, which I use for driving the two children around is nasty! The boy likes to sit in the front and pretend to drive while the girl grabs the book that I have in the car and my decor. There are so many crumbs in the backseat that an ant colony could live there indefinitely.

I love both my jobs, and the children are fun – but my energy level and cleanliness will never be the same lol.

First post complete for the month of March Slice of Life challenge!

  1. I can’t imagine both teaching and nannying – that’s a lot of kid time! I was a children’s librarian for eight years and I loved watching kids grow and learn, but you take it to a whole new level!


  2. Do you get any time on the weekends to recover? Two jobs of any kind can exhaust you, but that is a lot of kid time. I hope you get a little adult conversation throughout the week.
