From Office Manager To Poopy Diapers, Long Live Lipstick!

I lay claim to being a positive soul that sees the glass as half full.  Still there, and finding the silver lining in my life.  This is SO not where I envisioned myself 2 years ago, or even 1 year ago.  But here I am, Marvelous Miss Marti, officially driving the magic princess chariot to the elementary school to drop off and pick up a 6 year old! Hey, we have vivid imaginations around here, helps us to make the most of our realities.

Yesterday was my first FULL day of being a daycare provider.  WOW was I exhausted by the end of the day!!! I’ve always been a huge admirer of the stay at home moms, they have one heck of a job and it is by far one of the most important and difficult jobs around.  After  a full day of poopy diapers, baby food, toddler toys and 1st grade carpool, my praise of them is renewed.  Oh and the day of coloring, Micky Mouse on the Disney Jr. channel and sing song gibberish I will understand in time.  BUT I AM LOVING IT!! I never had the pleasure of being a stay at home mom so this is like getting that chance all over again, but getting paid to do it.  Challenging but fun!

I have learned I still possess the talent to do many things with one hand with a 7 month old on my hip, including entertain a 2 year old.  I’m rockin it out as Miss Marti!  At the same time kicking my multi-tasking skills into high gear and working on Avon, blogs and baby blankets.

The Avon is coming along very well! I have 2 recruits so far, and one of my recruits has one, my down line is picking up fast!  I am looking forward to being in leadership as a unit leader and growing this business.  It is so different than when I did it years ago, and since I love makeup and jewelry this is working out fantastic for me.

Thank God for sippy cups and LONG LIVE LIPSTICK!



  1. You are a BRAVE brave woman! I have two babies that I stay home with and their presence day to day makes me EXHAUSTED! I’m glad you like your new job- without people like you, what would working moms do?

  2. Good on you, kicking butt! Sounds like everything is going so well and what a fab attitude as well. Big hugs!

  3. Ever watch The Nanny? She takes care of the kids and ends up marrying the millionaire father!! Just need to find that guy….

  4. Okay – THAT made me tired just reading it, so I had to leave a comment giving you a big thumbs-up for all that you’re accomplishing and the positive attitude you’re embracing.

    Kicking butt with a crayon in one hand and a lipstick in the other.

    I can hear you roaring from here, woman. You go get it.
