30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 13

Here we are at day 13, almost halfway through May. Make sure to keep up with Maggie and Cheila as we take this challenge together.

Day 13 is about My Dream Job.

Today’s post is going to be shorter than the others.

I never really had a dream job to be honest. I’ve worked a lot of jobs, and while some have been good, and others bad, I can honestly say that I’ve never been happier than I am now in my current job as a teacher.

I never dreamed that one day I would be working and spending my days surrounded by babies and toddlers. That I would spend my days singing songs, dancing like an idiot, effortlessly maneuvering myself so I can comfort multiple children at the same time. That picking up babies (sometimes two at once) feels completely natural and normal to me. That care routines (feeding, sleeping, and nappies) would become second nature. That I can tell which child is behind me by their cry, laugh or walk. That while there are hard days, it’s all worth it when we laugh and play together, when they run (or in their case it’s more like a fast waddle) up to me for a cuddle, as I watch them grow up and learn how to walk, talk, push boundaries, make friends, learn empathy… That it’s a bittersweet feeling when these babies and toddlers grow up and move to the preschool side, and we’re not as close. But they still like to stop by and talk to me, to tell me about their new shoes, or what they did that weekend.  I’ve been at my current job for over two years now, and I love every single child that comes under our care. Even the ones that love to push buttons 😛 I love the team that I am lucky enough to work with, and how we are all passionate when it comes to teaching.

So in that respect, I’ve found my dream job. I look forward to going to my job, and I also look forward to coming home and crashing after a big day of running around after all those cheeky monkeys.

Hello all! First of all, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who supports me on my blog! 400 Followers is a big milestone and I’m still in shock. Two days ago, when I announced I was going to do this Q’n’A, I was at 397, now I’m at 415! That’s awesome! New followers, I really appreciate the support, and please feel free to stop by and say hi so I can get to know you! It’s getting harder for me to keep up with all you guys, so I can only check out your blog if you let me know you’re around! 🙂

You guys who have been with me for a while, and constantly show your support for my blog, thank you!! You make blogging such a fun experience.

Also, thanks for leaving me a ton of questions! I was nervous that I wouldn’t get any, and things would be awkward, but you guys were too cool to let that happen XD

Okay, enough rambling, let’s get to the questions. There’s a lot to get through!

Tabi Bee asks:

What is something that made you really happy/laugh in the last month? I told my parents about my blog! Specifically this post: Things I Learnt From My Dad. Mum and Dad both said it made them cry and they loved it so much. Dad even left a long rambly comment, clarifying about the soccer incident. It made me smile so much that my face hurt!
Have you ever traveled and had a weird experience? I had a kind of weird experience in Peru. Everyone thought I was a local there. I would get spoken to in Spanish, and I would stare at them with wide, lost eyes till they realized their mistake. Good times.
Waffles or pancakes?! You can’t make me choose between them Tabi!! I refuse! I will take them both, thank you! 😀
