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”"
