My name is Julie and I'm a young mother. For past five years, I'm working at local kindergarten as a teacher of Toddler Group (children between the age of 6 months to 2 years). This job can be quite messy, you have to change diapers every day. Despite this only drawback, I love it as I love children. Using baby furniture and supplies has become a part of my life.
