The Au Pair Has Landed
I should write a long post, but I don't want to spend the time.

Hongmei, our new permanent (well, at least for a year) au pair is here, and I could not be more pleased. She is a bit inexperienced, but she more than makes up for it by being super conscientious, smart, and eager to learn. Also, she seems to have really taken to the kids, and Margaret likes her already. Margaret usually does not warm up to people so quickly. Hongmei has only been on the job one day and already Margaret has been asking her to pick her up. My gamers can probably attest to the fact that Margaret is usually a bit more stand-offish. Duncan is also smitten, but he's easier to please.

Now my only concern is making sure I do everything I can to make sure that Hongmei is happy and has what she needs. I really want this to go well.

Hurrah! It must feel so good to know that you have this settled for another year. Even if you're still working out details, at this point, the default is that you have childcare from someone smart and conscientious who loves your kids. How nice!

Yes, it's really nice. In fact, she's so nice I'm getting that feeling about how it can't possibly last.

Hopefully I'm wrong about that.

Edited to use my new userpic.
