au-pairing

Monday, August 1, 2011

i au-paired with kayla for a day.

i use the term ‘au-paired’ very loosely.

because kayla is an au-pair and i am not.

so on the day of my visit, she actually tended to the children, while i stood around and commented on how adorable the girls are.

they are very adorable, i concluded.

if you don’t believe me….see for yourself:

*while playing with my camera, i asked the older of the two, who clearly loved taking photos, “what do you want to be when you grow up?  a photographer?”.  turns out, she wants to be a florist!  kayla tells me that that, indeed, is her current life ambition.  how adorable is that?

I'm so awkward with kids. Hopefully when I get knocked up my motherly intuitions will kick in, because right now they are alarmingly absent...lol.

And I don't think I even know what a florist was when I was her age...

Those girls are super cute! Does your friend like being an au pair? I always thought about doing that after college, but then I met a cute guy, and got engaged about six months after graduation. I don't think they usually welcome married couples as au-pairs :)
