Confessions of a Nanny


Don't know if you knew this.
But I already have two kids in my life, Monday-Thursday
They've been prepping me for motherhood since 2009.
325 PB&J sandwiches and 4500 pushes on the swing later,
I almost feel ready.


Yesterday, they were trying to brainstorm suitable names for Baby Bean.
My only requirement..."a good boy name."


The top contenders were:

*Alex
*Chompy
*Trucker
*Tree Climber Junior



They are my little munchkins.
Until November.
Then it's time for me to have my very own munchkin, Monday-forever.

Lindsay said...

Chompy is personally my fave. Just saying...

Stephanie said...

I'm a fan of Trucker. It actually almost works as a real name!

I miss being a nanny. Sometimes when the office is super stressful I ask myself why I ever quit doing that...

Stephanie said...

This is such a sweet post! I'm sure they are going to miss you, but Tree Climber Junior is going to be such an amazing adventure!

Marjorie said...

You're having a baby?! Congrats! Do you know what you're having?

...I Thought I Loved You Then said...

Haha those are some cute names! I feel the same way about the kiddos I nanny for... they're my "nuggets" and as much as I love those little nerds I can't imagine how much more love I'll have for my own nuggets one day! :)

Katie said...

I'm digging Chompy :) Love this post.

Andrea@Fancy That! said...

Umm--Trucker all the way!

Nannying is such a blast.

Michaela said...

Oh this melts my heart. I love hearing what little ones come up with. I babysit a little girl and her baby doll's name is, appropriately, Baby (: And everything in the world ends in a "y"...snacky, cribby, grapey, swimmy....it's adorable.

Lindsey said...

Definitely chomper!

The Sweet Life said...

Haha so cute. You should def use one of their names. Happy Friday!

kira said...

They are cute, and their name suggestions are priceless.

Emma Frances said...

Haha I love the names they came up with! And I've been a nanny before too {most recently for a family of nine children with two-year-old triplets} and I'm pretty sure that helped prepare me for future motherhood too!

Jennifer Rod said...

I loved this line "Then it's time for me to have my very own munchkin, Monday-forever."

Stephanie Griffioen said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! And I love to read up on other women expecting around the same time! Congrats!

Jennifer said...

Haha! They are so funny. I vote Tree Climber Junior. :)

agroeper said...

Can you imagine naming your son Trucker? LOL! Too funny! Kids are hilarious!

Megan said...

I'm totally partial to Trucker. At least he would know his occupation right from the start.

Kelsey said...

I love nannying and kids definitely say the best things. My vote is for Trucker (ha!)

Christie said...

I was a nanny for a great family and they were my practice kids too. I worked up until I was about to pop. They wanted me to name my little boy Sarah...they eventually learned to love the name Gavin :)

Lauren said...

Oh my goodness! I didn't know you were a nanny! I'm a nanny too! I work every M,W,F for a family of 3! (soon to be 4!) The kids are in our wedding! I love it! Your baby is going to be SO cute! :)

This was such an adorable post! Though, I expect nothing less from you... I have 2 little sisters. They've been training me for motherhood since I was 14. I don't know if I'll ever be ready though... I still love turning them over to their real parents at the end of the hour, day or week I have them.
