Merry Christmas, From Our Family to Yours!

When I started writing this, I was planning on keeping it simple and light. I planned on addressing my followers in one section and my team in another.

Christmas Crafts (For Kids)

When I was in elementary school and it was craft day, I remember being so excited!! I really liked all kinds of crafts, but Holiday crafts were definitely my favorite. The nice thing about where I went to elementary school was that we did crafts all the time. Who knows? Maybe that’s why I’m so creative now!   Crafts are such a fun way to spend quality time with your little ones. Not only do they spark your child’s imagination and creativity, but usually the adults have fun doing them, too!   Anyway, I think your kids are going to…

The Reason for the Season

Dressing Your Kids for the Coming Cold

Hey guys!(: We all know that keeping our kiddos/NK’s protected from the cold is important. It can be tricky, though, when you’re dealing with very young children who can’t express their needs yet.

Keeping Your Spirit Bright While the Sun Disappears

Sheesh! This time of year sucks! I mean, yay cold weather and yay presents, but this time of year is so stressful for me. Not only do I have to find or make gifts for those I love, but I also have to stay in budget.   Have you met my Aunt Carol? NOTHING makes that woman happy!

Don’t get me started on the insulting compliments I have to endure from Grandma June for fear of getting banished by my mother.   Then there’s the constant cleaning,…

It’s a great feeling and I’m sure many of you would agree!   As a nanny, sometimes you get matched with a really wonderful family and want to go the extra mile for them.
