The girls are well. My tween who is emerging into a teen is quite gorgeous, like a sprouting tree in the spring, in her entirety, not just in her outward beauty. My teen of 14 years is a constant mystery and deliverer of stress, but I’m learning to take it in stride with less seriousness and worry. And last week, I finally put my year old degree to use and gained employment. I’ll be caring for little ones full time. It is funny that caring for small humans, during the most significant juncture of human development, pays the least in the field of education. It is my opinion that early educators should be paid on the scale of professors. And we should be required to have the same amount of education as college level instructors. However, if that were the case, I wouldn't have my current employment, right?
The clock says 6:31 am, so I must wake the girls. Here’s to coffee, cool autumn mornings, and the breath of life that keeps us going.photo credit: Muffet via photopin cc
