Becoming A Nanny Was The Best Decision I Ever Made — Here's Why Kids Are WAY More Fun

My first glimpse into motherhood.

I have worked with kids of every age since the time I was able to babysit. I was a youth counselor, a babysitter and a big sister. Naturally, I had a great time finding fun and creative things for the kids to do while their parents were away, while also getting my fair share of tantrums and messes.

After heading to college, I became wrapped up in working for a restaurant and not meeting as many children as I used to.

After COVID, I was without a job which led me to seek other options. I had applied to multiple companies online and was starting to feel like giving up. Instead, I applied to become a nanny and it might've been the best choice I ever made.

Within a week, I was hired and interviewed by multiple families with varying schedules and children's' ages.

After meeting a few families that didn't quite suit my needs, I found the perfect one for me.

Now, everyday I get to wake up and feel excited in the morning before going to work. I no longer feel stressed and on the verge of a mental breakdown, I feel peaceful.

I can't remember a time where I genuinely felt passion for my job, with the way I do for this one.

I have to change diapers, give bottles and suffer through bouts of tears but the bond I've made with the family and their kids are all worth it. Not to mention, I get to be involved in the milestones that every child goes through first-hand which I had never experienced before.

If you love kids as much as I do, I know that there's a family out there waiting for you.

If coronavirus has does anything for me, it at least gave me the chance to find real happiness in my job.

No longer are the days of counting hours until my shift is over; I don't need to when I'm a nanny. Kids are tough, but they sure are more fun to hangout with!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
