I work at a daycare/preschool in the 3 year old class. Today, they needed someone to fill in, in one of the infant classes (6 weeks- 6 months old). We are a fairly large center and normally the teachers down our big hall (3’s, 4’s, and 5’s) don’t care for spending the day in the younger classrooms. One of my co-workers had been asked to spend a few hours in the infant class, but she was really apprehensive, so I volunteered (I can always use a break from my sixteen 3 year olds, no matter how much I love them :))
Can I just say, ohhh my goodness! I fell in love lol. The crying/pooping/spitting up didn’t bother me in the least bit (now, maybe they would if I did it every day…actually I’m pretty sure of it). When I went back to my classroom, I was all smiles. AND one of my parents (a preschooler’s mom) asked me today when I was going to have one. oh, AND I went to visit my grandparents this afternoon and my aunt was over there (we all live in the same neighborhood) with a baby…apparently she’s caring for a child of a teenager…don’t really know the whole situation, but WOW.
We’ve been married less than 2 months and we are young (DH is almost 23 and I’ll be 22 in September), but baby fever is making me nuts! Logically, I don’t REALLY want a baby yet. I’m getting off BC next year and the NTNT phase will begin. We both have stable jobs, but we want to enjoy being married…just the two of us, at least for a little while. So if I know all of this and it makes sense in my head, why oh why am I going baby crazy!? Please tell me I’m not alone 🙂
