So, the other person on my shift quit so I have been doing both our jobs. We haven’t hired anyone else yet because people are not applying! In the meantime my past 2 checks (and next 3 yet to come) all have over a hundred hours on them.
Related….my birthday was this past month. My husband told me we are going on a Disney Cruise with the kids this January. I don’t mind the overtime because it gives me extra cash for excursions and spa time on the ship.
I am motivated and feeling excited. Our last cruise on the Disney Wonder was a blast. This time we are going on one of the newer ships and sailing concierge class. Can’t wait.
Love the tshirt my son got for my birthday. Also love the silly photobombs he did for these photos. He got it at teeturtle.com - they have LOTS of great shirts!!
Diva just texted me this from the other room. Lol
Happy Independence Day from Diva!
"They are just like kids my age except they listen and do whatever I tell them too."
Diva telling me how her summer babysitting job is going.
Hubby got me ice cream. I think he confused the chocolate I asked for with fudge nipple.
Recent photo of my husband. :)
"I need to drop the kids off at the pool"
Diva quoting the show The Guild to let me know she had to go poop. LMAO
So, I work in a group home with mentally challenged young women. The other day I picked up an earlier shift for some extra hours. One of the girls needed some one on one time and she loves animals so I took her to my house to play with my dog and have some ice cream.
The girl had a wonderful time playing with the dog. It came time to leave and she was pretty worn out so I got her wheelchair from the transport van and assisted her back to the vehicle.
Diva followed us outside and as I was putting the wheelchair away in the back she said, “Mommy I really love you..”
I replied,”I love you too but you don’t usually say it as much as you used to. What’s up?”
She thought about it and said,” You are just so kind and loving and take care of people and they love you.”
I laughed and said,”I am kind and loving to you too…you just don’t always wanna deal with it. Meanest mom in the world remember?”
At this point I finished putting the wheelchair away and backed up to close the vehicle up. She waited till I looked at her than replied,”I know you love me mom. It just seems so much more important when it is with strangers who need the kindness than with family.”
Hopefully the lesson is learned and compassion, human decency, and kindness are things she will carry forward with her forever. After all kids do live what they see in their lives around them. It made such an impression on her seeing me be so kind and patient with someone suffering from health issues and severe mental retardation. I can’t help but hope that in spite of our almost daily battles and her being self - centered (as most tweens are) that she will grow into a kind, loving wonderful adult and have happiness and satisfaction in whatever she chooses to do with her life.
