Childminding!!!

This childminding milarky is soooo tiring. I have only had Reuben for 2 days and I am shattered come 10pm! He is a little star so it makes the job enjoyable, so much so that I have decided to become a registered childminder. I went to a meeting with Tameside Council last night to find out more. The meeting was designed to put you off, as they went on and on about the national standards and ofsted, but when you have worked in education this does not put you off at all. The way I see it is if I am at home making sure that mine own are well looked after, stimulated and exposed to a variety of experiences to enrich their development, I can offer the same to other children.
The only part that daunted me was the bit about marketing yourself... I'm not too sure how I would do this?!?!? but I hope it will come to me in a flash of inspiration....LOL!!!

So HSMS people, that is why I haven't been around... too busy during the day with a little boy who is not my own, and too shattered at night to sit leaving comments on blogs!!! I will catch up with all of you tonight, I promise:)
So my photo for today is a bit of a cheat as it was taken last week... but I wanted to use this one of niblet's chubbly bubbly pandies holding his sponge, which he loves to chew on whilst he is having a bath. We get through a sponge a week since his peggies came through, but will he chew anything else? OH NO!!!!

2 more sleeps until I get him back:)

What a lovely photo - that sponge is obviously very special to him. Hope the childminding continues to go well - not surprised you're tired.

Mine used to do that too, even when they were full of soap and water they'd suck the sponges dry....how on earth do they DO that!
