ok everyone likes to complain about how terrible babies and toddlers are but let me tell you these littler age groups are REALLY COOL TO WORK WITH because they’re constantly excited and intrigued by EVERYTHING around them and you don’t even have to make too much effort to “teach” them anything (except for social skills and stuff) because their brains soak in everything like a sponge and they’re literally learning new things every second just by messing around and observing on their own
they’re constantly like “WOAH LOOK AT THIS I have ARMS AND I CAN MOVE THEM SO MANY WAYS HOW MANY THINGS CAN I DUMP OR SWIPE OFF THIS TABLE AT ONCE??” “DUUUUDE did u see that GINORMOUS TRUCK that just went by? was that not the COOLEST THING YOU EVER SAW??” “OH WOW THIS MUD FEELS SO INTERESTING ON MY TOES I wonder how it feels in my fingers…and my face…wooowww…” “omg are those BUBBLES?? BUBBLES ARE MAGICAL GIVE ME ALL OF THEM PLZ”
just…man I love my job. it’s crazy and stressful and PARENTS ARE REALLY SCARY TO DEAL WITH but gosh is it worth it. kids are amazing.
