Sometimes you just have to make something a little out of the normal to express all the color you are feeling inside.

Creativity and Inspration From A Career Mary Poppins
Introduction
WARNING: Mild cartoon humor, general female violence, consistent spelling and typing errors. Play at your own risk.  Website: www.dapoppins.com  Twitter: Dapoppins@Dapoppins

After graduating from Northwest Nannies in 1988 I was hired immediately for a full time, live in position. I worked full time as a Nanny for the next ten years until I married and had children of my own. While my kids were growing I stayed connected to the child care industry by volunteering in the classroom, at church, and maintained my relationship with Northwest Nannies through temporary work. I took a few classes in 2011 and ended up with a Certified Nursing Certificate, which qualified me to also work with the elderly.  I don't consider myself a teacher, but I do think of myself as a bit of a bossy caregiver. With over 20 years of reading aloud and singing silly songs to children, I'm passionate about storytelling, creative expression, and encouraging the imaginations of all ages. I've been blogging since 2006 at Dapoppins.com
