It ain’t all rainbows and sunshine.
“You must be very patient.”
I’ve heard that a lot in my life.
Prior to my career as a photographer I spent over a decade working in group homes supporting adults who needed help with everyday life. In there I packed in another couple of years as an Educational Assistant at the BC School for the Deaf.
“You must be very patient.” I heard it daily.
I was never one to be satisfied with having just ONE job so during most of that time I was also working as a licensed hair stylist. ……where nobody suggested that I must be very patient.
Let me assure you, kids being kids and waiting hours for fussy newborns to settle requires nothing more than a dash of calmness in a big ol sea of love for my clients and what I do.
Being asked for the Jennifer Aniston ‘Friends’ haircut for the 3,789th time DOES require patience.
Oh dear, I’ve really dated myself there.
So no, I didn’t need patience. I got to see your boys be boys, rough and tumble but I also got to see their GIANT soft hearts.
….and I think we all know where they got those from.
