Just gotta brag....

Pardon me for a moment, I just have to brag about some of the comments Older Daughter has been getting on her papers at nanny school. Ready?

1. Outstanding performance on your midterm, especially your [name of child] observations! Amazing!

2. Your in-class participation is excellent! Enjoyed your presentation topics and your style of presentation.

3. You are well on your way to being hired. Your employers will be lucky to have you!

Aahhh, does a mother's heart good, it does....


  1. Amazing how if you read and comprehend how far you can go. Very glad older daughter is doing well but I am not surprised. That apple did not fall far from the trees that her parents are.

  2. That's awesome! You and Don have given her a sound foundation of skills and values. She has worked hard and made the best of it. Thank you for sharing. That school and her career choice is very interesting.

  5. I'm pleased and proud for you and Don, Patrice, and completely not surprised.

    Best of all, I see a long career ahead wherein this fine young woman you raised brings her positive influence and outstanding character into the lives of many impressionable youngsters, and we will all as a society be the better for it.

  7. Wonderful news, although I'm not surprised! I was wondering how she was doing. She definitely will be an asset to the lucky family who chooses her for a nanny.


  8. No surprise there! Well done, all around!

  9. Thanks for the update on your remarkable daughter! I was wondering how she was faring at nanny school. Cindy

  10. Wonderful to hear how well she is doing with her schoolwork and training. Is she happy, is she loving it - is she excited? Or is she homesick and just wanting to just be back at the house?

    1. She's loving it. She was homesick for a few days but now she's excited to be using her skills and talents.

  12. I also look forward to hearing about O.D.'s adventures as a top-notch nanny! I feel the pride you feel when a daughter like yours does well. Am so proud of her accomplishments already! What a boost in her self-esteem to get such wonderful compliments from her instructors. Helped vanquish the homesickness, I'm sure.
    P.S. I LOVE your landscape pics!! I save them for Wallpaper to enjoy even longer. (better than bees) :-)
