I sent out a desperate plea to some friends for help while I get Your Child Talking launched and spend some essential time on the moolah-raising for Purse and Boots. So while I’m “at work” I’m entrusting my blog to the care of others once in a while. So today I’m turning IPoMP over to the incredible CDG from Move Over Mary Poppins. She’s an ACTUAL nanny, so what can go wrong?
Lori’s hard at work at Your Child Talking…
She did the responsible thing. She hired a nanny to watch her readers while she was at work.
And by hired I mean she flattered me by asking. I’m notoriously easy. I might have said yes
hoping to boot one of you ladies out of her court because she’s pretty. Just sayin’.
So, basically, I figure if IPoMP is still here when Lori gets home, what happens between us stays between us. But you’re going to have to help me clean up.
And if I serve Kraft Mac&Cheese for lunch, you have to tell her you ate vegetables. We should probably get our stories straight as to which ones. (Broccoli always impresses parents, as does asparagus.) She’s all smart – and she’s got teenagers. She’ll figure it out if we’re lying.
A good nanny has always got a bag of tricks to keep the kids occupied. I like to start the day off with an outing. If the weather’s nice, we can play outside! Let’s do chalk drawings on Lori’s driveway for when she comes home!
Wow! That’s great. Lori will love it! Hey! No! Don’t get out the hose!!!
Okay! Time to put the hose away! Um… Let’s just say we were watering the plants.
Eat up your
macaroni and cheese organic whole wheat pasta and locally grown broccoli (we’re sticking with broccoli)!
Now for some
shameless self-promotion a bedtime story! What? Romances aren’t appropriate pre-nap reading?
“What a good nap we had! And what’s that? Oh! I hear it, too. Must be Lori coming home from Your Child Talking.”
Quick, everyone! Hide the Kraft boxes! Someone stash the sparkly, lavender paperbacks! Now, everyone sit quietly, and we’ll sing a song to welcome her home!”
“Keep singing, Everyone! We want Lori to know how much we missed her!”
