Confessions of a Nanny #2


This is The Bean.

We're pretty much BFF's. Someday he'll grow up and want to hang out with his guy friends all the time though. He'll even be able to make his own grilled cheese with ketchup on the side. Maybe even go to the bathroom without a handful of markers and a Calvin and Hobbes book.

{Maybe}

I'm getting a little verklempt just thinking about it.
Moving on.
{Yes. I'm in denial.}

This is Opal.

The Bean is "her boy" and Bon Bon is "her friend," (according to her, she has about 5 friends total in her little world), and we both are "held in her heart." Meaning, she loves us.
My heart melts a tiny bit.

P.S. Somehow we all have nicknames and sometimes we forget our real names.

It's kind of a zoo over here.

And furthermore. It rained yesterday. After I {wrote} such melodious praises to the sun. Spring showers?

touché, Oregon, touché.

xoxo

Everytime you mention living in Oregon my heart aches a little- I miss it so much! I miss the rain, believe it or not! Those kids are so adorable! Love what you said about the sweet girl, that is so tender!

This is so cute.
My daughter babysits a little boy named Conner every once in a while. He specifically requests her.

Nikki said...

I wish I were a nanny. SO much better than taking care of your own kids. Probably because you get paid. But I don't have kids anyway.

Girl of The Grove said...

So flippin' cute! : )
