So without saying too much, mainly because I am E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D., this adorable little 1.5 year old is the reason I’ve been M.I.A. A very good reason, might I add! I’ve been watching him since Thursday night while his parents- my friends- are out of town until tomorrow. We’ve had a busy weekend…especially these last two days…but I’ve really enjoyed every moment of it. This little boy has stolen my heart and I honestly hope he never gives it back.
I promise I will have many more things to say from my Nanny Diaries, as this weekend has proven to help me see just how beautiful life should always be.
To quote/paraphrase the final words of Christina Bale’s Supporting Actor Oscar speech, “And for my daughter, who has taught me more things than I could ever teach her.” I agree, so much so that I found myself with goosebumps upon hearing his words as I cuddled with Max on the couch, with him clapping along with those actually attending the Oscars. (He loves to clap!)
And for now, my brief final words are these: Thank you, Max. For reminding me that we should always strive to see life’s preciousness as seen through the eyes of a child. It’s the little things that matter the most.
