Poor thing - she's flown half way around the world and looks just so ...well ....fragile.

I have encouraged her to phone home, helped set up her computer and tried to make her feel welcome. I'm hoping it's just jet-lag and that her quietness and reticence is temporary.....

Bless her, she must be so tired and overwhelmed. You sound very kind.
Our aussie au pair was like that when she first landed on our moon.
She soon found her feet grin

sure in no time at all she'll be making her mark, enjoy it whilst it lasts!

My new one watched open-mouthed as our kids wolfed down their baked beans...

What is it with Space roockets and moon landings in today's MN au pairs.

You people are scaring... I might have to employ a nanny for the next 15 years. shock

Just an update - it's all a bit better today. She's more talkative and energetic after a good nights sleep. She must just have been absolutely shattered.....

Cluttercup, where do you live? I have a German au pair who is looking for company on the moon....
