Today

Today I was at work and was holding a sweet baby when one of my coworkers walked in–student nurse in tow.  Usually I am very nice to nursing students and all about teaching… but this girl set me off.  Probably because when she saw me holding this (sick) child, she said, “So you just get to hold babies all day?”  I wanted to smack her.  Hold babies all day?  Sure.  It’s not like I take care of sick, and dare I say, sometimes dying, babies day in and day out.  But no, my job is the easiest thing in the world… just hold babies all day.

  1. I am so glad people like you are willing to do your job. The burden you bear on the hard days is more than I would want, but makes such a difference for every family you come into contact with.
