One of the most interesting parts of the job is that we are getting a glimpse.
Stay with me.... this will be a happy thought to get you thru a long Monday!
The road to being an adult is perilous. It full of challenges that we see coming and many that hit us from behind with no warning. There are mountains to climb and valleys to enjoy. But it is a journey.
But as a nanny for young children I get to glimpse into the future of that journey.
I stare into those gorgeous eyes and wonder will her love of order and need to have things be just so make her a good organizer. A wonderful mother of a large family or a CEO of a huge company? Both?
I watch his love of animals and wonder if it is just a passing phase or a passion that will lead him to wild adventures thru Africa.
I see her struggle to explain her emotions and see a glimpse of the wife, friend and mentor she will be.
We are lucky to be doing what we are doing. We have to be ever present so we aren't looking away when we catch those glimpses.
Mondays are a good day to love being a nanny!!!
