Take this blogger to work!
Gina from Hiya Luv is having this very cool “virtual career day” called…
I love doing different kinds of posts, so I asked to participate.
I wear a few hats throughout my daily routine. If you’ve been reading along with me, you can probably guess a couple of them.
I am a mom–which is, without a doubt, the most important job I will ever have. It’s the job that has no breaks, no time off, and really lousy pay (in the monetary sense of the word, that is).
My paycheck comes in other forms–great parent-teacher conferences, and compliments on kind polite kids (at least outside of the house).
I get to go to their musicals and performances. Their artwork hangs on my war room walls, and inspires me. They are also staunch supportive followers of my blog…!
Monday through Friday, I work in a preschool with three and four year olds. What an amazing place this is! I get to work with some of the funniest, talented, kindest, and lovable ladies in the world. It is a place where your family comes first, and that in itself, is rare.
The kids say the darnedest things and give the sweetest hugs. We travel to the bathroom a lot, and we eat snack together. We learn about manners and how to be kind to our friends. We practice how to follow directions and be patient.
We get to be creative with paints, sponges, glitter, glue, paper, crayons and markers. Who wants to do the art project? That would be me, thanks!
One of the questions posed to us for this project was, how does your blog/shop/creativity contribute to, or distract from your job?
I feel that my blog and creativity play very nicely together with my day job. My friends at school are incredibly supportive of my craftiness. I bring projects in all the time to get opinions, and they are very generous about that. I love being able to contribute to the beauty of the place as well.
I get some of my ideas from school projects and help make ideas into school projects. If that isn’t creativity–I don’t know what is.
I don’t make a million dollars doing any of these things. I’m completely fine with that. It’s about loving what you do, and working with who you love. At least for me it is. That makes me unbelievably rich.
