Today is going to be an emotional one at our house… it Alex’s last day and I can’t say I’m not a hot mess… forgive my sentimental AKA crazy hormonal self, but 3.5 years with her in our lives has gone by in a flash and nanny doesn’t do justice for what all this sweet gal has done for us.
When she came on board, I was 7 months pregnant with a 13 month old I was trying to chase around and it was pure insanity. I was in the process of starting Sugar Bit, Jeff was traveling more and more for work, and let’s just say I could barely keep up with everything in between [laundry, tidying up the house, cooking dinner, doing the dishes, etc].
That’s when our own version of Mary Poppins came into the mix and saved us all.
Alex, I want to say thank you… thanks for being there for us unconditionally, for loving my girls so well, for helping them learn and grow, and for everything else you’ve done for our little family.
From being our go-to babysitter to someone I knew I could count on, I genuinely mean it when I say you have helped me be a better mom and have taught me so many life lessons on what it means to nurture and love and teach. You have been like a family member… someone we genuinely love, respect, and care for and I’m going to miss seeing your happy face everyday.
Most of all, I hope you know how proud we are of you for taking this big step into the corporate world and we will be rooting for you to succeed in your new path! Change is hard and takes time to adapt [I’m telling myself this a lot as of late], but I know you will knock their socks off just like you did ours.
It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later… you can’t get rid of us that easily 😉 We love you Auntie A!
