.It's going to be a good day today.

Good morning!

It is currently 10:15am as I type and I have been awake for close to 3 hours already this morning. Why? Because I have two of the cutest toddlers ever over my house..yeah, this nanny gig is pretty much the best job ever! I got up, showered, put "new" sweats and a t-shirt on, ate breakfast, let my hair air dry, didn't put a lick of makeup on, and then was greeted with some of the best hugs in the world.

So far this morning, both girls have given me "makeovers" by putting braids, aka twisty knots, in my hair, and putting pretend makeup on me using my makeup brushes. Favorite quotes from our salon time together, "Katie your hair is different colors on top! It looks funny."-Joy age 3 referring to my very dark roots coming in. "Why are some hairs shiny? Wow, I see them all over! Let me count them. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, oh never mind too many."-Grace age 4.5 referring to my many gray (grey?) hairs my hair coloring did not cover. Good times, good times :)

I never thought I would get so much joy come from the potty. Yes, the potty. Grace is a potty pro but we are still working hard to train her lil sis Joy. I bought marshmallows for this very reason and as soon as Joy caught a glance of their white puffy goodness she grabbed the step stool and ran to the bathroom. She sat..and sat..and sat until she peed and pooped. It.Was.Amazing. And all for two little marshmallows. Life is sweet friends.

I am getting distracted while typing this because I put in a blu-ray for the girls..Beauty and the Beast. This movie is absolutely stunning. STUNNING. I now understand why this was my mother's favorite Disney movie when I was little. Thinking back, I believe this was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater. Mom, since I know you will be reading this at some point, is this right?

Well, I think I shared everything I wanted to for this morning. Hope you had some little things of your own that made you smile today :) Time for me to prepare a snack, cuddle with these two cuties, and finish watching this incredibly beautiful movie. Oh, my job is so hard right?

Happy Morning!


  1. sounds like an awesome morning, i was a nanny and it was a fantastic time in my life, enjoy yourself! Thank you for the sweet comment, xoxo

  2. Now that brought me smiles! I don't have children just a puppy, but those moments sound like some of the best gifts in life! Enjoy this great day!


  3. love that you love your job-it would be hard to me! i am not a person who can easily entertain kids, so kudos to you. i'm sure you looked fab in your twisty knots!

  4. Katie, actually your first movie was a Benji movie, you were about 6 months old and as usual you slept thru the whole movie. Land before time, Little Mermaid were all before Beauty and the Beast. I still loved the ballroom scene, just beautiful.
    Glad that you are enjoying the girls, good practice!

  5. I just wanted to tell you that you seem like the most awesome nanny in the world! Are you sure your name is not Mary Poppins or Maria Von Trapp? :) Really, every time you write about your day with the little ones, I think you're amazing! :)
