Today I am a Child Life Specialist

Okay, so all days that is my title...but do you ever feel like you are superman or wonder woman some days? 
Today I worked with my very first amputee. He was five years old. I had the privilege of teaching him about his leg and what was to come. 

I have never worked with this population, so I enlisted the help of child life specialists I have worked with during my schooling, internship and even blogger Child Life Mommy. They all gave me great ideas to start with, but in the end, I came up with a plan and hoped for the best.  

Today my best was good enough, and I felt like Wonder Woman. 

It just goes to show that you have to be ready for anything when you walk into work!
 Everyday is different, and Everyday is wonderful! 

Put on your capes and be the best child life specialist you can be! (and don't ever be afraid to ask for help)

Have you ever had one of those days where you want to shout from the rooftops "Today I am a Child Life Specialist?!" Leave your story in the comments or on Instagram!
