thank goodness

as i've been hanging out with these three kids lately i've noticed something... but i don't know how to put it into words. they are so, PURE. so LOVING. so CHILL. like i said, i don't know how to really say it. the main thing that led me to this conclusion is that this past sunday was mothers day, right? well the mother in their situation is in jail for mistakes she made. the two older kids are old enough to know a little bit about whats going on and yet they still got so excited to bring home those typical gifts made in school and to put together a present for her from all three of them. they know she won't get them on time but thats ok, because even though she isn't here for them and flakes on them alot, they still love her. she is still their mom.

and so i shall apply this to me, the cynical nanny.

these kids; munchkin, princess, and S.A, are the same way with me. they still like me even when i'm impatient and onery. they still want to play with me even after i've had to get upset with them. they are understanding when all i want to make them for dinner is some macaroni and cheese. its nice, and it makes me a little bit more optimistic about the rest of this summer. i think that if i keep trying that it will work out ok.

there you have it, i'm only 3 posts in and i'm turning into a big ol' softy. sheesh.


  1. You're right. Running into Brad would be better than most things. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and helping me celebrate my sits day today! I had ginormous fun.

  2. Aww. LOL. You have an award on my blog! :)

  3. Hi! I think your blog is off to a great start! I can't wait to hear of your many adventures in Nannydom. I was almost a nanny once a upon a time... then I met my husband, and it just didn't work out. Figures. But I never once believed it would be easy. And THREE kids not your own! That's amazing! I have a hard time juggling my 2 (3 1/2 and 2 years old -- one is special needs)!!

    If you ever need any tips... hahaha I've got some good ones. You have to learn to be smarter then they are, and let me tell you, they can be darn sneaky!

    Love your blog and I look forward to hearing more!
