Once upon a time I had a desk job. You know the sort. Where you sit at a desk and work in an office from 8-5. A couple of years ago Christopher and I reached our financial goal for the time and decided that I could quit my job and do something I really loved. Around the time a new job opportunity fell into my lap. Being a nanny to a newborn and a 3 year old. Two years later I couldn’t be happier. I love those kids so much and my days are just wonderful.
Mallory and William are both such sweet kids. I can’t even begin to tell you guys how thankful I am for this job. I love going to “work” every day. Yesterday they were playing the wall-scoot game (one they made up) at my house and as they laughed at each other, my heart just filled right up to the brim. I love the sound of children’s laughter filling my home.
As a nanny, my schedule is far more flexible than it was when I had a desk job. It has given me time to pursue other things I’m passionate about. Like my photography. The kid’s nap time has become a great time to do the book-learning-side of photography. Not to mention giving me time to edit photos from sessions. Plus these two sweet faces have given me plenty of hands-on-photography practice. I love what I do. It still amazes me that I get paid to do things I love so much. And I am thankful.
