I’ve been blessed enough & lucky enough to work with children from 6 weeks through 6 years old (& beyond!) my entire working life!! 34 years & counting later, and…….I STILL LOVE it!! Wouldn’t have it any other way!! : )
    I have countless memories of making the babies in my care laugh hysterically…..from pushing them in a swing (& getting bumped into when I “forgot” to move),to tickling ticklish ribs & bellies, to having MAJOR cases of the “drop-sies” to making funny noises/ faces/,to building towers only to have them tumble down on me & looking surprised (even pretending to try & catch it,only to miss it entirely!!) & funny animal noises & pretending a shoe was a telephone….still brings a smile to my face & heart when i thhink about it : )
    It was great fun to read the list & relive wonderful memories…..thanks for sharing!! : )
