And as with everything else, we can take away what works and leave what doesn't, right? If I was starting this life all over again, I would have gone to college and training for this.

I was 40 when I got my CDA and 46 when I got my Associate's...did most of it online and it took a while cause my own kids were small at the time. This job, though, takes alot of HEART as well and you have alot of HEART. I find that I use my experiences and heart the most in this profession. My degrees, I feel, just solidify what I do and give me a plaque for the wall for the WORLD to see. Some take notice, some don't but I have brought attention to my wall of accolades for those who are looking for "bobbie jo babysitter" I put in some long hours for those degrees so I hope the clients that I do enroll, whether they like me or not, appreciate and respect my dedication to this profession??? I can dream that there are still parents out there that do CARE!
