i love children. i love them so much, that its my job to hang out with them. i get paid to do crafts, go to the park, and to jump on trampolines.
the only down side to that, is the HUGE LACK of adult interaction. since all i do all day is hang out with kids, i don’t get to hang out with people my own age. if i do get any adult interaction, it is with my boss, who is 20 years older than me, or my roommates.
yes, i love acting like a kid and doing fun things, but it wears on me. i want to go to a house show. i want to go on a long bike ride with my friends. i want to talk about important things like god and the planet rather than barbies and crayons.
i’m going insane.
but, it pays the bills. it pays for a lot of other things too. how can i complain? one day, i’m going to have my own kids. i might as well get some training in. theres no better way to learn how to be a parent then to practice being a parent with different kids.
this post has no weight (other than the weight i carry as a nanny without a social life) and for that i apologize. i just need to vent.
i don’t think i want to be doing this the rest of my life. can i just play music and go on tour for the rest of my life? please?
