We Have the Best Nanny Ever!!!



My day today has been jammed with back-to-back meetings. Mid-way through the afternoon I received two text/photo messages on my cell phone from Alex. She's apparently out and about with the boys, somewhere (I have no idea where and I like it that way -- she's thoroughly responsible and comes up with spontaneous outing ideas far better than any ideas I'd have if I were to make some sort of rigid itinerary for her to keep with them). Obviously, from the two pictures she sent from her cell phone (the two above), they're having fun! It is one of the best feelings in the world to know that while I'm working away my boys are not only well cared for, but having an absolute BLAST. If anyone knows of a "Best Nanny" contest, please let me know about it. I want to enter Alex. She would win it!

Seriously - can she move to Indiana? We are in the process of securing childcare and it is not going so well :* The boys look like they're having a blast!

We have the best au pair AND she is staying with us a 2nd year!!! I am relieved beyond belief... A real peace of mind knowing my girls are in safe hands and we so trust her.

aw shux...THANX!!!! I am the *LUCKIEST* nanny ever!!!! these boys are my ultimate pride and joy. I am more than blessed to be in your lives. PEACE AND LOVE :) :-D :-P just to help put the pix in context, the boys were completely THRILLED to throw sticks and leaves into the water and RUN to see them fall down the waterfall...for over 45 minutes!!! Children most definitely teach you to appreciate the small things in life. xoxo
