1. The relief of knowing your outside life means absolutely nothing to them
    Just be you! All you ever had to be.
  2. Rugrats holiday specials!
  3. The strange awe of knowing kids better than they know themselves
    Social interactions among little kids are amazingly interesting and sincere ages 5-8
  4. They love my "silly rap songs" and it's often the most efficient way to quiet them
  5. The well earned awe of parents because their kids are obsessed
  6. Paid to play and teach
  7. Social media gold is part of the deal
  8. The rare joy of a job that directly and concretely matters every day
    I just have to be me. That's it. Less needed input to matter versus a day of writing
  9. Free crackers all day
