Mothers Day

Leave a comment

This past weekend was mothers day. I know not many aupairs are mothers themselves,but they play a major role in the lives of the children they look after and are often the stand-in mother figure for those children when their mothers cannot be there.

Did you do anything for your employers this mothers day? We painted flower pots and planted bulbs. I enjoy doing crafty activities with my charges,but sometimes the activities and home-made gifts are not received as graciously as we would like them to be and it’s not pleasant to come in and find all your hard work forgotten in a cupboard or even worse thrown away. I do however,keep on creating and giving as I feel it is important to teach children the intrinsic value of making and giving something from your heart rather than just buying something from the shops.
