Its been a few months since I last posted about my adventures here in Nanny Land and I have to say, I have enjoyed the journey. I have been so busy and so blessed by this family and these tiny humans, I just never got back into posting. It would be wrong to not invite you, my dear friends, fans, and curious passers by, to experience snippets of the Sensational family I have the pleasure of loving.

Liam’s 2nd birthday party was a while ago and I am just now finding the pictures.  I had a lot, but sadly snap chat got most of them. Here are just a few though. He had a fun pool/ ice cream party and was so excited to open presents. Each time he received a gift he would smile and ask, “Is it for me?” The answer was always yes and it was greeted with a wide grin and a joyful “Thank You” to whom ever had given it to him. His favorite gift was a red tricycle from Mommy and Daddy.

Although the summer is ending and my technical title of Nanny is over in the next month, a new and exciting chapter has already started. The plot twists to reveal a new house for my family, a house that I too will be living in. In addition to the new house, there is to be…. A New Baby!!!! Congratulations to my lovely lady Diana and her hubby Rory!!!!


There is still a lot to do with the house and moving in on… MONDAY, but we totally got this!  I do intend to post house pics as soon as I can. I am so excited with the progress from before til now and we still have soo much to do, but everything is looking AMAzing!!!

I love these little ones. They are a blast and a blessing, fearless in most things and so much fun. I will post more soon, but I need to go — Liam is awake!!

Good Morning!

Good Morning!

Its 9:15 on this beautiful Saturday morning and Nikki and I are both awake eating breakfast. Jennifer spent the night at a friend’s home and Liam is still fast asleep. I realized yesterday that I did not post this last week, and a lot happened. Liam turned 2, and Jennifer Rocked at her dance recital. There were many beautiful days and fun was had at the waterfront and pool. I plan to upload as many pics as possible as soon as I pull them off my camera.

The plan today is let Liam sleep in as long as possible- Nikki’s recital is this evening!! Once Liam wakes up, eats, and gets cleaned up, we are off to the pool or river for about an hour to an hour and a half, and then back to the house to get ready to go into town for the recital. Its going to be a funtastic day, busy but awesome.

Summer time!

It is officially summertime in our neck of the woods! Temperatures in the 80’s and a perfectly functioning pool make for great days of sun and fun. So far we have had picnics at the pool, game days in the small field, and sand castle building at the waterfront. Hiking and dance parties soon to come. With great fun will come great pictures and videos as soon as I pull them (remember to pull them) from my camera.

Almost summertime!


I love that it is Spring time/almost Summer!! The kids and I spend a lot of time outside. Nikki’s coat, though highly fashionable, is usually worn as an arm accessory by me. It is much too warm for her to be bothered with it once we are actually outside in the glorious 60-70 degree weather. Soon the pool will be up and ready and swimming will be another daily activity!!!

The Dress I have yet to wear

Once upon a time, I decided to go into town on one of my days off and shop with some friends. My second favorite store in the local mall was going out of business, and as luck would have it, I arrived on their very last weekend. Everything was 70-90 percent off and I went a little crazy. The one item I fell in love with was a beautiful blue dress that I knew I couldn’t live without, so that in mind, I bought it and didn’t even try it on. This was about two months ago and I still have not found a reason to wear it but the children have. The reason: Bedtime. Last minute dress up game before winding down and slipping into their pj’s. Note: This is a strapless dress and the hanger straps still attached work as sleeves for small humans. Who would’ve guessed?

School is OUT!!

So I am a little bit late with this one, but better late than never, right?

Jennifer has completed all of her homeschooling for this year and will be entering 3rd grade this fall!! Congratulations, Jennifer! As a tribute to her I have found a picture that sums up how draining school can be, in the hope that she will enjoy her summer  vacation even more.

I suck at Blogging

Here we are over a month after I said I would post, and what do I see?  Oh, yes, no followers and the one post I swore to have a resolution to….

As it has been over a month since I posted, “The Battle of Bedtime”, it is safe to assume that Liam has gone to bed at least once since then. Actually, everything has turned out so well, he has gone to bed and slept, every night since. Nap time, however is a different story…

To anyone who has stumbled across this place, probably by accident, I apologize for my super delayed responses and postings. Turns out watching children is kind of draining sometimes, and posting about real life events to an unknown audience is not my natural first response. I will be better about this, my goal is to have at least 3-4 new posts a month. For your viewing pleasure and because I really need to make space on my phone, I will start adding pictures and videos as well.IMG_20150331_122130
