Work has been going pretty well so far this year. It’s been a super lazy month- one kid was away for a week on vacation and another is away for two weeks right now, so most days it’s just been one or two kids, plus Sym. Of course, that’s all changing this week! I have a new baby starting graduated entry this week, and in March she’ll be here 4 days a week as well as a new preschooler five days a week! It’s going to be crazy hectic for a while as I get settled into a new routine, but at least I have a mid-month week of relaxing in Maui to break up the crazy!
It’s not just new clients that have been making me busy recently- I’ve gotten tons of calls from prospective clients, as well as people coming up to talk to me at Sym’s school and in one instance, jumping out of her friend’s car and running across the street to catch up with me! Before Christmas I had zero kids on my waiting list, and now I have over a dozen!
When people come up to me or come to the house for a meeting I always end up having to write my phone number and email address on a scrap of paper, which is annoying and not very professional, so earlier this month I finally got around to ordering the business cards that Cassandra Warren designed for me. I’m excited to get them (I’ve never had REAL business cards before), but when I check the tracking number it just says

That is like, the LEAST satisfying tracking info EVER >:/

I bought Cassandra Warren gift tags! She does lovely work.
I can’t wait til the day I can open up a day care myself. It is my realistic dream.
It is so super fun and really is one of the more rewarding things you can do. Kids = THE BEST
