I sit beside the fire and think of all that I have seen, of meadow-flowers and butterflies In summers that have been; Of yellow leaves and gossamer in autumns that there were, with morning mist and silver sun and wind upon my hair. I sit beside the fire and think of how the world will be when winter comes without a spring that I shall ever see. For still there are so many things that I have never seen: in every wood in every spring there is a different green. I sit beside the fire and think of people long ago, and people who will see a world that I shall never know. But all the while I sit and think of times there were before, I listen for returning feet and voices at the door.

-J.R.R. Tolkien, from The Fellowship of the Ring

Nanny 911: The Next Generation

Well, for any of you who don't watch Nanny 911, it's a reality show that's based in England. These really cool-looking nannies {pictured above} go to peoples' houses in the states and straighten the kids out. Well, i believe you are reading the blog of the next Nanny! But maybe you'd like an explanation for why I say this? If your answer is 'no,' well, thats too bad. You're going to have to keep reading, anyway.
So this morning, I wake up to my mom hovering above me, with the overhead lights blaring. I had spent the night sleeping in with Kiara and Karleigh, as I usually do on the weekends. My being in there generally helps the whole household be able to sleep in on saturday mornings. ANYWHO, back to my story: So, there was my mom, hovering above my make-shift bed on the floor, and for the life of me, I could NOT figure out what she was doing. Keep in mind, this is happening at eight o'clock in the morning, and I was completely out of it! So I sit up, and my mom looks at Kiara, and says, with extreme aggitation in her voice, "What did you do when you got up?!" Come to find out, kiara had tried to cut ruby loose this morning {thats a long story, but to make it really short: we've been having to put a wrist strap on Ruby's foot at night, because she kept getting up, and was playing around with stuff in the middle of the night that could've been very dangerous. So we attatched one side of the elastic strap to her ankle, and the other on my dad's night stand.}. Kiara had gotten up, went into the kitchen and pulled open our silverware drawer, pulled out a pair of scissors, went into my parents bedroom, and cut the wrist band so that Ruby could get up and play with her. Needless to say, my parents were furious. So, with that in mind...
Tomorrow is my parents' anniversary, and today they went out to the race track to see the qualifying runs, then out to eat, etc. etc. etc. I was left home :( to babysit, and one of Kiara and Ruby's reprecussions was that they weren't allowed to play hardly at all. I had to have them doing chores all day. Trust me, it wasn't fun for them OR me, because after a while, I started running out of things for them to do! lol
So, in the future, I picture me being right up there with Nanny Yvone and Nanny Stella. Which, isn't that bad of a future, really. I mean, you get to wear those awesome outfits that they have {cause I think the nannies look so cute in them!!!}, you get a cute little car to run around in, and you get to be based in Nanny Central, which is in England!!!! {In case you all didn't know, I have a dream to one day live in Canterbury, Kent, which is in the east of England}
So! Thats my story for the day! What's yours?
