Care to take any guesses?
Airplane pilot perhaps?
Mini-golf course designer? Who needs Thunder Road Amusement Park when you have the imagination of the Westra Boys. Shovels, rakes, hockey sticks and a little creativity are all thats needed to build the perfect obstacle mini-golf course. I assure you it takes a real pro to putt the ball around the shovel and then up onto the rake and down to the electrical box underneath. I could have charged admission for all of the onlookers going by honking their car horns and waving in sheer delight when they figured out they were watching a hotly contested golf match...
Or maybe just a job titled "boy wrangler?"
But no, I won't be doing any of those things. I need to stretch, to grow, to utilize a different skill set.
And so, almost to the day I decided to start searching for a job... the phone rang. My friend's sister wanted to know if I could help her. Her daycare provider was pregnant and needed to take 9 weeks of maternity leave at the end of September. Would I be interested in watching her kids?
And heres the beauty of this situation... they are ages 2 1/2, and the baby is about 8 months old now. Its been a few years since I've worked with this age group. And the biggest stretch for me? They are both little GIRLS!
I had hoped to start today... but with my voice sounding like I've swallowed a croaking frog, we decided to wait till next week. So you won't find me here in blogland much during the day... unless its either the very early hours or the very late... but I'll fit it in because its such a good outlet for me.
I also won't be sharing about the girls in a direct way, but may have some stories to tell in general about discovering all things little girl.
