Besides the fact that some days the boys are still sleeping when I leave for work (which makes for much more serene mornings for mama),
and that there has been a noticeable change (for the better) in Gus's behavior due to having more consistency and routine in his life,
and that we are forced to make sure our house is reasonably clean and tidy every single night which actually gives me so much peace in the mornings,
and that she organized our out-of-control sippy cup stash situation (!!!),
and that three days a week I don't have to unload the dishwasher (oh I DREAD that task) because she does it for us,
and that in hindsight the whole potty training process went so smoothly thanks in part to her,
and that Gus's independent play skills have improved by leaps and bounds since she started two months ago,
and of course the fact that the kids both really seem to love her.
BESIDES ALL THAT...
Our nanny is freaking awesome because
she does adorable holiday crafts with the kids!
I am sooooo not an arts and crafts kind of person, as much as I would like to be, but I simply cannot resist the whimsy and nostalgia that is a good homemade children's holiday craft project.
Oh for freaking cute.
