It has been well over five years since I’ve shared a blog here. I haven’t stopped writing, but I did burn out. Our family had a lot of major things going on by Summer 2013 including a move out of state. I wanted to concentrate on the family and taking a break from home daycare for a while because I had burned out.
During that break, we caught up with family, transitioned back into public school, and I decided to become a direct support worker for adults with behavioral, physical, and intellectual disabilities. My degree is in social services, so this wasn’t a stretch for me. Plus, I was still a caregiver…just for a different age group.
I have been back in the home childcare field or over three years and hope to add something here periodically.
