Auntie Cara Saves the Day...

And the award for the best auntie in the whole wide world goes to....

Cara Mae.

You may have noticed a lack of posts from last week. It was a bit of a rough one. Our nanny decided to leave us so we found ourselves scrambling. We obviously wish we lived closer to family but in times like these it is even harder. I don't consider myself a stress ball but this was easily the most stressed out I have been in a long long time. 

Change is hard but change can be good...

So priority number one was finding a short-term solution. Auntie Cara is a teacher in Arizona and the school she teaches goes year-round so rather than getting the summers off she gets 3 weeks off every quarter. And guess what? Her next break started Monday - talk about good timing! She arrived Sunday night and is staying until the 30th. Words can not begin to describe how thankful we are!

Priority number two was finding a replacement au pair. We love being able to have the boys at home so this bump in the road did not change our overall decision to have a nanny. So this weekend was spent interviewing several other au pairs and we are very excited to have made a decision. 

(Here's a video of Mason trying to help me look at au pair profiles online...)

Noi from Thailand will be joining our family on October 1st. We are very excited for Noi to meet the boys. Thai au pairs have a reputation with the agency for being excellent with babies and being very family oriented. We are very excited.

PS - stay tuned for a guest post from the award winning aunt!
