Childminder poem    

 
I don't wear power suits, make speeches or drive a fancy sports car. 
 
I've never made a big sale, or been elected to the local government. 
 
I don't "do lunch", have a big impressive office, or carry a beeper. 
 
I spend my days wiping away tears, giving hugs, and serving chicken nuggets.  
 
A good day is when I go a whole 9 hours without a temper tantrum, bite mark or a toilet training accident. 
 
My office is a room full of brightly coloured toys and laughing children.
 
You may not think that what I do is very important and you may even whisper behind my back "What a waste of a good mind" but I know better.
 
I make a difference because I'm changing the world one child at a time.
 
Everyday I'm getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to touch the future.
 
I'm proud to say "I'm a Childminder”
