So, no more substitute teaching. I have taken a job at a daycare, CCLC. I have a limited feature of benefits because I am part time. Which means I don’t have a permanent classroom; I get to float around. I wanted to leave room to still work production. But honestly since I’ve started I’ve just been getting more sleep.
But that’s ending soon.
One can not work hard and simultaneously sleep.

I work with kids from 6 weeks to 5 years old. I love working with the babies and I wish I worked with them more often. I usually work with the big kids but they don’t need me as much. The babies are so needy which suits my personality more. I need purpose.
With the big kids you teach a lesson and then the rest of the day is pretty much damage control. You keep them from tearing things apart, from ripping each other apart; from ripping themselves apart.
Babies are fun to play with, sing songs with, teach them how to feed themselves and they very rarely talk back. You get to watch them make milestones. One has to feed babies and change babies; there are more tasks when working with babies. When the kids get older that luxury wanes.
