Host Mom writes a Poem to her Au Pair


ChelseaThe new au pair had just arrived.
The following day, I went outside.
And on the backyard deck, I saw something was amiss.
All our crocs were lined up neatly…
    Who had done this?
The kids? No way! The hubby? Couldn’t be.
Oh My God!!! It must be Chelsea!
I confronted her about it.
She said she tidies all the time.
She asked if that was ok..(chuckle)
Oh honey, we’re gonna get along just fine!!!!
2 rules for the children. No sugar no tv.
And what did she say? “Works great for me!”
She is caring, sweet and truly kind.
That family in NYC missed out! This girl is a find!
So vivacious and full of life, the kids adore her!
So neat and clean, germs and dirt abhor her!
A modern day Mary Poppins, singing while she works.
Performing for the children, dance parties to Firework.
Every morning she greets us with her beautiful smile.
Going with the flow and always going that extra mile.
Ballet carpools, making lunch, Bodhi’s cloth diapers full of poop.
She goes above and beyond daily. Walking the puppy and closing the coop!
Every task she undertakes, she performs with care.
And if my clothes are in the dryer, she’ll even fold my underwear. 🙂
In this crazy fast paced world with our crazy schedules and busy life.
She is better than the best au pair…. She is like having my own wife!
Chelsea- for the beautiful spirit that you are and for all that you do.
November is also the month of gratitude- and I’m so grateful for you.
