Parent made me cry!

Ok, shamelessly provocative title. Sibling mindees I've had for 2 years finished this week as gran has moved closer to help look after them. I got a lovely card with a message written by mindees who are now 5 & 3 and their mum wrote a note/reference which made me cry. They also gave me a necklace so that "every time I wear it I'll remember them". I posted a couple of months ago when a mindee I'd also had for 2 years left without even saying thank you so thought it was only fair that I shared this too!

It's nice to feel appreciated. Perhaps you could let them know you would be happy to babysit? It would let you stay in touch with them. My nanny took my two out a couple of times and also babysat for us. It was great as she knew them and our routine.

Aww five that's so lovely. smile

I'm a nanny and one of the most toughing comments I ever had in a reference was "feeling takes care of XXX exactly as I would which is the highest compliment I could pay her".

Presents and keepsakes are lovely, but, words mean so much more IMO

I love Elephants
One of my parents last Xmas brought me a elephant in one of those snow (except it was gold glitter) globes things, really pretty, made me go all misty eyed.
