His WHOLE Life

My BIG BOY
He’s 25yo today and we are super proud of him
Celebrating his quarter century
HA Because he didn’t want to wait until 30
to have another big party fun bash
Why not… LET”S have some FUN
FAMILY FUN
BUT why am I sharing this with YOU
My Son has been part of Family Day Care HIS WHOLE LIFE
My sons have been part of childcare their whole lives
AND what do I need to share with YOU…
One of the main QUESTIONS I get from new educator
OR new mums,
YES beautiful early childhood educators
Starting their journey
Finding their way
Planning and wanting to be awesome early childhood educators
Knowing the drive and need to be present parents
JUGGLING the new role of COMBINING THE TWO
Questioning their next step…
How will this effect MY CHILDREN
HOW will I make this work?
My priority needs to be MY children
BUT
HOW WILL THIS REALLY WORK?
THE FEELINGS that bubble up…
MY children will need to share me
My children will need to wait
My children will take 2nd place
As parents
As educators
We DO the BEST we can with the choices we have at the time
I HAVE done the best I could
Questioning
Making changes
Adjusting my journey as I have gone
TRUSTING the choices I made
Were the best I could make AT THE TIME
I am proud of our journey as a FAMILY in Family Day Care
AND DO YOU KNOW WHY?
I have been there EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
For EVERY precious moment
YES my sons had to learn to share me
YES my sons waited their turn
YES my sons even took 2nd place – sometimes – it’s the truth
BUT i wouldn’t change it
>> NO I WOULD NOT <<
They are AMAZING = yes MY sons and YOURS will BE TOO
Thoughtful, patient AND caring OF OTHERS
Loving, giving, mindful with serious skills around
UNDERSTANDING OTHERS
AND our precious children…
THESE are the sorts of sons I could only of HOPED to raise
AND YES
THEY were raised amongst the CRAZY of Family Day Care
SO
When YOU ask me
Will being an educator
Will being an early childhood educator
Will being a Family Day Care educator
BE worth it for my family
BE worth it for my children
BE worth it for ME
I SAY Y.E.S
Check out Simple Reflect – The latest documenting tool for Educators
It’s worth the struggle, the frustration, the questioning
It’s even worth the juggling, the sheer exhaustion and
things NOT quite going right
Because things don’t go right sometimes
BUT as I look back
I am PROUD of my sons
AND I am proud of OUR journey
And MY hope is that YOU won’t miss this
The OPPORTUNITY to have an amazing journey with your children too!!
