I pay for this domain annually. I write pretty much never, but I can't let it go. There's a very real part of me that doesn't feel that I am 'nannyanya' anymore, which is especially strange if you consider that I am a full-time nanny now, something I never REALLY was back when all this started nearly ten years ago. I've always nannied, sure - but it was part-time, pay my way through college stuff.
Now? I spend 45 hours a week or so with children, as their care provider. We go to library story times, the park, swim lessons, skiing and a million other things. Heck, I bought Halloween costumes on clearance for them today. Because, I know their needs and their wants; their likes and dislikes.
I've been working with these two little boys since pretty much the day after I quit my teaching job, two years and eight months ago. I love them. I love their family. I love that I pretty much free reign - we can go do whatever and it doesn't really matter. I get to "teach" - the five year old is reading, the two year old has an insane vocabulary and can sing just about any song we've ever listened to.
I'd like to say "I'm blogging again." Or "I'm reclaiming my space and writing when I feel like it." But I feel like I do that all the time. Maybe if I aim for a couple times a month during nap time, I'll be successful. Maybe it'll be months between posts.
The first step to blogging again is to actually sit down and write something. And I've managed that, so let's see where this goes.
