Today a mother came in to pick up her son from Student Care. This is the conversation she and I had:
Mom: "My son is loving Student Care this year, so much so that he wants to come on Friday when there is no school even though I'm going to be home that day"
Me: "That's fantastic! Glad to hear he is liking it so much"
Mom: "Last year, he used to cry when I told him he had to go to Student Care after school"
Mom: "Let's just say, we are so lucky to have you!"
...This is how I know I've made the right decision when it comes to my profession. I'm so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful, amazing, and inspiring children and families.
