Clarabelle, if you look back at the responses you will see that people who answered that they love looking after others people children are also the people who work with children.
I've looked after a friends little girl probably once a month over the last 4 years (she's currently 9). I love having her and my now DH loves having her over. She's even by choice opted to call DH uncle. I've always been called aunty which was her parents doing.
In saying all of the above though I haven't had her over since DD has been born. Not sure how it will go TBH. Both girls are pretty needy in different ways
Fair enough. Maybe it's just the rest of us then, eh?
Nope don't enjoy it! I'm dreading DD getting older and wanting to have sleep overs! At the moment watching DD is like watching 20 naughty kids coz she is so angry and has such a bad temper! The 1 exception I have is a friend whose DH has just gone overseas for a work conference for a few weeks, I offered to mind her son whenever she wants coz DD loves him and is sooo well behaved around him!
Clarabelle, CC workers are DEFINITELY in it for the love, not the money I honestly don't know how on earth someone could be a child care worker if they didn't like it, it would drive you completely round the bend.

No I don't.
There are those that love it though, but I definitely don't understand it.
I really enjoy looking after others kids. I have no problem with mess or the noise as long as they are having fun and are safe I really have no problems looking after them.
