Hi Everyone!

I apologize, I took a break from writing the last month or so.

The boys are growing up quick! I love that they are walking and exploring more.  With all the rain we have been having, it is greener and greener outside. I love it! Today I took the boys outside to teach them about leaves, pine cones, and 3 leaf clovers. They enjoyed touching each piece of nature as I talked about them.

My article called “Alphabet Summer” was published in the Nanny Magazine recently! I am thrilled to be published!!20140522-185705-68225107.jpg

And finally, I started up a “Fairfield County Nannies Group” for Connecticut nannies!!  I will write up a blog post soon with more details about it!! 🙂

Nanny Magazine

Hello fellow nannies out there!

If you are like me, you might be looking for the perfect magazine to subscribe to.  Well, awhile ago I came across the nanny magazine!  That’s right, it’s a magazine geared toward nannies!  Right now there is an online version but in Jan 2014 it’s coming to print! I’m super excited about this!  You can find the online version here: www.nannymag.com.  They also have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nannymagazine , and they have a twitter: @nannymagazine.

Do you have any suggestions of great informational websites geared toward nannies?
