The best thing about being a facilitator of play for young children is the need for constant movement.
Of course, the real work starts when the kids arrive.
I notice that a little one will leave food on his plate and crawl under the table to eat whatever has been dropped there.
I am constantly disinfecting, sweeping, and mopping.
There are always dirty dishes of course, and setting the dishwasher is an all time favorite for the little ones, so I have to do it real fast before they get in there. 
They keep me going and moving.
There is always some type of exchange going on; it's amazing!
There are of course always noses to wipe-it's ALWAYS a fight. 
There are hands to hold on stairs - or just because...mouths to spoon food into.
And then the quiet moments
books to read...stories and jokes to listen to...and some cuddling (if they let me).
I am truly privileged to be able to do what I do!
