To The Parents Whose Kids I Watch At Daycare, Thanks For The Best Job Ever

Without you, I wouldn't get to do what I love most.


Dear daycare parents,

Thank you. You all have such amazing kids, and the fact that I get to be a part of their journeys growing up is something truly wonderful. I am lucky that I get to work with kids and have as much fun as I do.

To me, it's the best job in the world. I couldn't ask for anything better.

I wouldn't get to do what I love if it wasn't for you. You chose the daycare I work at, and you chose to trust us. In turn, I try my hardest to make sure that all of your kids feel welcome and loved. I want them to feel safe and look forward to coming to daycare.

I make sure to greet them with a smile and to say goodbye at the end of the day. They certainly never fail to make me smile, seeing as the first thing I hear each morning is all of them screaming my name and running over to greet me.

You all are also so incredibly nice. I have loved getting to meet you and interact with you. I love telling you about your kids' days and getting the chance to chat. I love getting to take pictures of the kids to post to our group, as many of you have said how much you enjoy seeing them.

That's what I want. I want you to know that they are having fun and that they are safe.

My favorite part about working with your kids is watching them grow and learn — getting to be there while they're learning to walk, ride a bike or use the potty.

I love the fact that I get to celebrate alongside you and tell the kids what a great job they did.

I also like getting to be a part of some of your lives. I've babysat for you, come over for some fun or even just taken the kids out for fun on my own time. The fact that this isn't just a formal daycare setting, but a real relationship and friendship, means a lot to me. Thank you for letting me into your lives.

I have to congratulate all of you because you have some of the best kids. They play well together, have manners and are really well behaved. I know raising a child can't be easy, but I want you all to know that you're doing an amazing job.

Keep up the good work, and we are always here to help you along the way.

There is so much that I could thank you all for, and I'll do the best I can to make those kids happy. I hope they go home and talk about their days. I hope they look forward to coming in and being with us.

I hope we are doing our job right, easing your worries and keeping you happy as well.

Thank you.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
