I miss my kids (thebabysitter files)

by tammy

Since moving to NYC I have either payed the bills or supplemented my income by watching some of the sweetest kids in Brooklyn. Over this past year however, I have taken on other full-time employment. While I still see my kids for the occasional weekend gig/visit, it’s not that often, and I have to say… I really miss them.

This weekend I got to spend some time with a couple of my old regulars. They recently bought the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and since we read the first few books together, they were saving this one for me too. Yes- in one night we read 133 pages, funny voices and all!! Then they surprised me with a little birthday party, complete with cupcakes from One Girl Cookies and handmade gifts. My favorite is the outside of this card:

birthday card goodness

Last week I was asked by super-local blog Brooklyn Based about the best gift I ever received as a nanny (check it out here) and it got me thinking about how fortunate I have been… not for the gifts, but the gratitude. It’s things like this that make my heart glow.
