Nanny in action


It's been a while since the last time and so many things have been happening lately. Last week we celebrated my nephew's (who is the most beautiful baby in the world!) christening and almost a week later now I am in Amsterdam taking care of not one but three little ones.

I suppose there is always a first time for everything and as I was coming here my suitcase got lost in Copenhagen. Gladly I did get it a day later so I didn't need to go shopping for new clothes (even though that wouldn't have been so bad after all).

Once I arrived to meet my family I had three little ones jumping and running and being excited to see me which warmed my heart. I must say that I am lucky to have such a good family and they tried so hard to get me a bycicle since everything is designed for giants here. Now I am the proud owner of a bright pink bike and I couldn't be more happy to be able to move around. We went to so many bike shops and it started to get a bit frustrating, but one of the bike shop owners told me: " Don't worry you are going to find a bike out there that fits you". I guess finding the right bike is like looking for your soulmate :D

I am not going to lie that it isn't hard, but little by little I am getting to know new people and getting used to the routine of the family. The kids are very nice and I am glad that I found Mara from Italia who also works as an aupair close by so we can do things together with the children.

First step so far has been trying to find a Dutch course and I am looking forward to learn how to pronunciate all the khhaaa they use here.

So much to do but gladly I have a year to figure things out! Now I need to go cook something for the family and boy I am terrified that it will turn out to be a total mess! We shall see how it goes...
