(new herbs and chair for my front porch.)
When I first became a nanny, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. My first thoughts of the job offer were making crafts with a little girl in Kindergarten and running around with the kids at a local park during the warm months. As I have come to notice within the last six months, this job is more than just the joyful activities, but the everyday lives of these children (the chores, the fighting, the laundry, etc). There are defiantly good days, and there are defiantly not-so-good days. All and all, I have loved really developing a relationship with the brother and sister that I nanny, and this is also a learning experience for my future teaching years.
This summer, nannying will consume about half of my days during the week, with school consuming the rest of the weekdays. Even though it is not officially "summer" (but yet, "summer break"), I was having thoughts of all the activities I was planning for this summer. Making these little lists (as above) are so beneficial for me. Readers, what are on your to-do lists for summer break?
(Ps: a few of these photos were taken by the little girl I nanny, she insisted to become a "photographer" and told me how to pose, hints the babydoll in the last photo.)
