Batman v/s Superman: Why can’t we all just get along?

March 29, 2016

Batman v/s Superman. Captain America: A Civil War? REALLY? These are all supposed to be the good guys people! IF comic book characters were not so heavily marketed towards young children, I’d say, “Go for it”, “What evs…it’s just a movie.” In real life, the lines between the good and the bad are often blurry. Just look at our nation’s 2016 political primaries. It is dark gray; the world media and the campaigns themselves have been dead set on polarizing these candidates hoping to lead our great country. We want a Superhero to guide our people and defeat the enemies of the world. As adults, we know that Superhero is just a relative term, BUT kids…Kids believe in Superheroes!

What They Don't Tell You About Becoming a Nanny

March 12, 2016

To some, the thought of willingly volunteering for endless cooking and cleaning up spilled food, may be the most terrifying thought on the planet. Others jump at any chance to help a family take care of their most prized possession(s). I happened to fall in the second category, and when the opportunity arose to help a single dad take care of his little girl, I said yes without skipping a beat.

Spring Activities For Kids

March 10, 2016

When I was a preschool teacher some of the best activities were during Spring time. With the changing of the weather the kids were able to spend more time outside which we took full advantage of. Not only were they able to run around to get rid of lots of energy, but things were also changing all around them. Flowers start to bloom and grass starts to grow. Bugs appear from hiding and birds are out and about building their nests. You can feel the sunshine on your skin and the breeze on your face and everywhere you look, the colors are becoming more vibrant and things are starting to become alive. Just being outside provides so many teaching opportunities to take advantage of.

Starting Out On My Own; My Struggle is Where I Found My True Self

March 04, 2016

When I was 18 my life took a turn. I was forced to grow up quickly and figure out things on my own. Some things were within my control while others were falling through my grasp. I was working three jobs; serving at a local chain restaurant in the morning, nannying during the day, and retail at night. If I didn’t work all three, I made sure to pick up an opening or closing shift at the restaurant.
