Behind “Miss Katya’s Quote of the Day”


If you follow Mrs. Mommy Owl on Instagram then you have seen the awesomeness that is #MissKatyasQuoteOfTheDay.

My job is rewarding in so many ways, but with all the hugs, kisses, smiles and giggles comes just as many tears, “NO!”s, and power struggles. This is why when working with young children, a positive and supportive teaching team is so important. You need people in your corner that will make you laugh when all you want to do is cry.

For me, that comes in the form of Miss Katya, fellow Blue Room teacher and one of the people that helps me get through those really stressful days at work. The days when the kiddos won’t sleep longer than 30 minutes, they fight every diaper, bottle and meal, and every one of them screams bloody murder the moment you put them down.

We have so many amazing days in our classroom and Kat adds such a positive and fun energy, it’s hard not to smile when she’s around. However, she still understands that life is hard, our job is not always easy, and everyone has bad days. She is always willing to listen to me and checks in to make sure I am doing okay. She is one of the most caring and selfless people I know, and I am so lucky to have her as a co-worker and a friend.

Everyday Kat writes a different inspirational quote on a small whiteboard hanging in our classroom. And everyday I look forward to seeing Kat’s words of wisdom. And everyday I am so happy I get to share it with all of you too!
