My kids and I have discussed what our future is holding for us. By discussed, I mean I talked and they listened. Even though they are grown, they still see me as head of household and the major decision maker. This can come in handy at times, but I am ready for partners, not followers!
So, I told them we act as equals and they can make whatever decision they want. After staring wide eyes at me for a minute, they half-heartedly agreed. So, we had our conversation.
I want to go back to doing home child care. I want four or five preschoolers to teach! I love the group interaction and the silly kids! We watch kids now, but only part-time at each location, so it’s actually pretty hard to do any serious teaching or projects. So, trying for a home child care would be so wonderful!
The problem is this poor old house is not even close to being able to pass an inspection. It will take a lot of work and time to get it inspection ready. But, we have decided to give it a try! I want to have it ready in a year, or sooner. We can do most of the work ourselves. We will make improvements as we get the funds to do them. It might be fun!
I am very excited and I do hope this works! My daughter said she would be more than willing to partner with me after her current nanny position is done, which is after the 2015/2016 school year. Perfect!
I just wanted to share my news. I might even post some before and after shots as things get done!
