From the time she was 17 months old until age 6, I spent a good chunk of my week hitting the local playgroup-playground-aquarium circuit with sweet Sadie, and eventually with her baby brother Cooper, too.
Once I left nannying and became a mom, my life became pretty complicated... and all my high hopes of staying in close touch with everyone went out the window, along with regular hair-washing and full-nights of sleep.
One of my biggest regrets has been not keeping in contact with these kids that were such a huge part of my life for over 4 years.
Matty’s now almost 5, and we just got to spend all weekend with Sadie & Cooper... and I can’t articulate what an incredible full-circle experience this was for me.
I am in awe of what interesting people they have become! I’m blown away by how mature, thoughtful, kind, helpful, responsible, respectful, funny and communicative these kids are. There was lots of reminiscing, and I’m shocked by how much they remember about our time together!
To see these 11-year-old and 8-year-old kids (who I used to do baby signs with!) now doting on and nurturing my own son, pretty much melted my heart and made me feel like I was in an episode of Fuller House (which we totally watched together). Cue the laugh tracks!
Heart full. Connection re-established. So grateful. And Matty wishes that our double sleepover could be 70 one hundred night sleepovers. ❤️ #5yearslater #reunion #nevertoolate #fullcircle #nannyturnedmommy #momsofpreschoolers
