That's great, Christine! Some people definitely have more patience than others. There's no complaining happening, it can just be exhausting, is all we're saying. None of us would choose to work with them if we didn't love them!
It depends on the age group of kids too. Older kids are always a little easier to watch (in my opinion) because they can entertain themselves a bit better than toddlers can. Toddlers always need to be doing something when it isn't nap time! All of the little ones I have are close in age, so I spend a lot of the day breaking up fights and it takes its toll. I don't have a lot of patience by the time I come home.
I remember the first week I started my job the youngest girl liked to scratch and spit on me. It was not
fun breaking that habit, but it was broken.
Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?
