I am in my final year for obtaining my teaching license and classes have been intense. And I’m just feeling so done with daycare families. I can’t put my finger on it, but I feel blah. Things that usually brought me joy just seem like a chore and I feel so done all day. How do I get out of this funk? I know it’s me because the parents getting on my nerves changes weekly
    (ps. I actually have 5 out of 6 great families at the moment).
    DO the wild thing. Whatever that feel good fun activity is. For me, its playdough (i have one year olds, so we dont playdough or slime much)or slime or messy. Also love when we bake cookies. Basically do somthing super fun. OR if you in need of a break, get out that super special go to activity that they just adore but you dont do much. In our case, I fill the frogs face (bubble machine). gives me 10-20 mins to sit back and breathe and know there ok (Im watching the whole time)

    I understand! This has been, by far, the most difficult fall/new school year I have ever had. I had such an awesome group the last few years….out of six kids, 5 were within six months of each other, age-wise. Some started here as infants, the rest as toddlers. I had a blast doing preschool activities with them, playing games as a group, etc. Well….they all went to kindergarten in August. I only had my 3 year old left. I started over with two infants and two toddlers. I terminated one of the toddlers at the end of her first week, because of nonstop screaming. I’ve just given notice to one of the infants for the same reason. I’m not enjoying my job right now, and that’s not the norm for me. I’m ready to get into a good groove again!

    I think the last two years, in particular, have caused some negative feelings to overtake us too often.....and we just can't consistently keep our heads above water....just treading enough to survive. Hang in there....best of luck on your teaching license.

    One thing I've done to give me a bit of relief is to simplify and alleviate anything that irritates me..no matter how silly it may sound, if it makes YOU feel better, do it! Hang in there!
