Why Can't I Be Rich Doing That?

One word after graduation can pretty much sum up my life. . . CONFUSING! I just don't know what to do with myself! It is so hard to know what to do? Mainly if I do what I like I make no money. My heart says stick it to the man! You like kids so work with kids! Who cares if you have money? Then my brain says hello! You need money to survive! So I am constantly torn between my head and my heart. One day I will figure out how to make money playing with kids all day! ha I just started working full time at a day care. I do love the kids I work with the 1 and 2 year olds and they are so precious! I love this stage! However, I desperately miss the After School Program! I worked there for three years and honestly LOVED the kids! They were my friends I loved watching them grow up! The kids I had my first year were in second grade now they are fifth graders! Huge change! Sometimes when I think about the ASP my heart aches to go back I know that I was so blessed with that job. I loved the kids but I also loved who I worked with. Me and Kelly worked together for the past 3 years and I still don't feel right when I go to work without her! I know it's ridiculous but I cried when I left and somedays I feel like I could cry again thinking about the kids! So if anyone could come up with a solution that I could work there 17 hours a week on salary that would be great! Thanks for your help! Just for fun here are some pics from over the years of the ASP!
