Breathe and Slow Down

September 17, 2020

Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord. Psalm 127:3

I’ve always loved kids since I was a little kid myself. I remember always wanting to hold and care for new babies and play with the toddlers. When I was young, my mom would bring me with her to her preschool class and I enjoyed helping and having fun with the kids. Children have always brought me such joy. I’ve been caring for children since I was 10 years old. I remember well my first babysitting job and babysitting CPR class.

I’m so grateful for all of my childcare opportunities throughout my life. I’m especially blessed to have the job at La Casa in the nursery. The nursery has brought me so much happiness throughout the past 12 years. It has been wonderful meeting all the parents and watching the children grow.

I know times are very challenging right now, with kids doing online school and parents working, but try to take a moment, breathe, slow down, and everything will be okay. I’ve always loved the advice of Mr. Rogers’ Daniel Tiger: “When you’re feeling mad and wanna roar, take a deep breath and count to four.”

Enjoy God’s beautiful gifts!
