Kids have a lasting Impact

Kids have a lasting impact!

I have learned that every kid has a lasting impact on who I am.

Working in childcare has SO many perks. Here are just a few:

  • You establish lifelong friendships for your kids.
  • Meet amazing families that would literally take you in as family.
  • Every kid you interact with have an everlasting impact on you (even if some are stinks)

This week at work while reminiscing about children who have aged out, one in particular came to mind, Jasper. Jasper was eccentric.

Jasper had you guessing everyday if it was going to be a wonderful end of the rainbow pot of gold kind of day or drag you down the sewer red balloon kind of day.

But that’s what made him so remarkable. Crazy how one kid can do that??

The two stories I’m going  to share are probably the two of five moments as an adult I could not contain my laughter in a situation that I should have.

A Poem for Husbands

My Dear Husband….

You provide, you care

You frequently walk around in just underwear.

You mow the yard, clean up that mess

But then come inside and expect I do less.

You sleep in, I stay up late

If you could help out sometimes, well that would be great.

You think working and spending money on me is key,

But honestly all I want is to just BE.

Summer is Over! And body shaming should be over too.

While attending over 40 field trips this summer, and half of them being water ones, I have established a new criticism.

I wish I had more confidence.

Do I think I am an attractive woman? Yes.

But there are times where I do not feel good in my own skin.

Over the summer, I saw several woman that were flaunting it, and I was somewhat jealous.

They did not have perfect bodies, they were not scar free, they were not stretch mark free, and yet they were in two pieces strutting their stuff.

What the F#$* Did You Just Say?

Early Childhood education is an ongoing adventure.

I have a lot of great and humorous stories!


Anytime I tell stories of my early childhood education adventures, I always get the question…

DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

YES, this really happened.

These stories, no matter how extravagant they may sound, are true. I can retell them 100 times and they would still be told the same.

Children are amazing, and there are always those “memories” that you keep from them.

Throughout our JOURNEY together, I, Whitney Felty, will tell stories that are true, have happened, they are not fabricated.

(of course will not be using the real name of the child when doing so.)

ENJOY!

What is a 4 Year Olds Etiquette?

What is a 4 Year Olds Etiquette?


So we have all heard of my sweet Chandler by now?!?

Three times this week she has corrected me and actually made sense of it.

All three times she was being a complete shit.

“A complete shit is defined as a child who has no intentions of pulling their shit together in the moment.”

First, Chandler was acting up in the doctors office for her brother Austin’s appointment. Not only was she singing “This Girl Is On Fire” at the top if her lungs but spinning the doctors chair, opening cabinets, etc.

Obviously I’m tired of threatening her with her dad, so I say “I’m never taking you anywhere that’s not specified for you again.”

Without missing a beat Chandler says “Well, me and Bubba go to the same school so you have to take me somewhere specifically for him.”

The Stubborn Child-Chandler Chronicles

The Stubborn Child

Chandler Chronicles-one


I’d like to introduce my middle child to you, Chandler! Chandler, is “defiant, stubborn, strong willed, hilarious, and beautiful.” Chandler does something each week that I file away in what I call her own “Chronicles”. I want to share these stories with y’all because I figure that moms everywhere can relate to these type of situations.

Here is my first story of her adorable stubbornness and the conversation that ensued.

Me:Chandler get dressed we gotta take your sister to dance.

Adorable Stuborness:Ughhh do I have to wear a shirt and shoes?

Me:Yes please, especially since we will have to get out of the car.

Then my blondie (aka adorable stubbornness) comes out in a pineapple pattern tank top, leopard gym shorts, and ballet slippers.  Can you imagine this outfit? When I asked what made her choose ballet slippers, she looked at me, number one, like was a complete dumbass for asking and stated “because they are just too comfy not to.”
