We wipe noses
Change pull ups
Put on shoes,
Take off shoes.
Put socks on,
Put on shoes again.
Clean up after them
Clean some more,
And more.

We work with them.
Observe them.
Watch them learn something new every day.
Spend time with them
Encourage them.
Support them.
Watch them grow.
Learn about them through their actions because they are still developing their words.
Cheer for their accomplishments.
We hold them,
Hug them,
Snuggle them.
Dry their tears.
We play with them.
We take care of them.

I may have an exhausting day at work. But it’s worth it.
