Being a nanny is more then “babysitting.” It’s more then taking care of a couple kids for awhile. It’s more then doing some housework and making some meals. It’s more then the crafts and letter learning. Being a nanny means learning to love and be loved. It means opening your arms and your heart to a child, knowing that they will leave a lasting impression on you. And with any luck, you’ll leave one on them. You’ll love those kids as your own. You’ll get exasperated; kids can’t always be easy. But you’ll get excited, laugh, and smile a lot too. You’ll share toys and chicken nuggets and good times. And, at least for me, I hope to always get the pleasure of being a part of their lives. Because those kids have a piece of my heart and I’ll always treasure the memories we made.
