When I was younger I was willing to cut off my nose to spite my face. Not so much anymore.
Just the occasional leaving of the shower knob in the shower position instead of the tub-spout.
i love children, especially when their parents arent there (because they never seem to have the same behavioural standards i do and it drives me fully bonkers). im a professional nanny, and in the past ive been a daycare teacher and director. i prefer babies and infants because i have a real natural knack for it and it doesnt require as much emotional labour as older children, with whom i like to have good conversations where they can explore their ideas. no way to do that with little bitty babies! just wrap them up and love on them!!! i love babies so much. so sweet and precious and full of potential.
Bella runs the office while I am at work. She has been such a great stress reducer. We have been together for 2 months now. She was actually food for Lilly the snake but Lilly who was sheading wouldn't eat her so she received a pardon and is now my pet at work. Never thought I would become so attached to a little mouse but not sure what I would do without her. It kills me to leave her on the weekends. Security babysits her for me when I am away.
Instead of saying I don't know, I would tell my kids to ask their Dad.
There's still room for improvement - I'm still working on that.
Well said, Barb.
