Why I do what I do

I have been working with children almost all my life. My current job as a baby wrangler is one that I love for its constant surprises and moments of wonder. Never mind that there is not another job in the world that keeps you laughing and loved like this one. The talents required, like being able to do 3 types of dog barks and 2 kinds of monkey calls, as well as deftly use a bubble machine (without getting suds on the camera lens), sing a crying baby to sleep or change their tears into belly laughs, help to keep everything else in life in perspective. My father always told me to find a job that I wanted to go to every day and I am so lucky that I have been doing that for over 10 years.
