Day 37: I'm Lovin' It

It's day one of "the Nanny." (Welcome to the blog, Amy!)

At 7:24, I was fully dressed. No stains on my clothes. Sipping a cup of coffee and thinking through my day.

Normally, at 7:24 a.m., I was battling someone to do their hair, or "encouraging" someone to shove their breakfast down their throats at breakneck speed, or drink their drink, or stop taking their shoes off, and on, and on, and on.

I hated that schedule for the girls. Everytime I awakened a sleeping baby, I could only think, "poor thing, you just shouldn't wake a sleeping baby!"

I hated that we were raising the girls from the earliest of age to go at life, full speed, from the moment their feet hit the floor in the morning.

So this morning, at 7:40, I went upstairs to say, "Good morning," before I left for work. And I was greeted by a sweet little girl sitting in her bed, singing to her sock monkey. That's how to start the day.

Shortstack was a little worried, a little apprehensive (I knew this because she was licking her sock monkey's ear . . . when she's worried, she licks).

But I know they are in good hands with "Miss Amy." And just to make sure their first day goes well together, Tina came over to hang out in the morning. And they love their Tina. So, I'm sure it will be a good day.

All that to say, I'm lovin' it already. I hope Amy feels the same way by the end of the day. As I was leaving, I heard Tina tell her the story of the time the girls wiped poop all over their crib when they were supposed to be napping. (I walked out really quickly, just in case she changed her mind about staying!)
