When she was in her late 20’s my mom started a job nannying for a family, at the time, they had 4 kids with another on the way. My mom nannied for them for 6 years, and in that time their family grew to 6 kids, and my mom had me!
I grew up with them. Went to pre-school with their youngest (he’s just a few months older than I am.) We were inseparable, if he was sick and couldn’t go to school, I’d cry throw a fit in protest. If, for any reason, my mom actually took me to pre-school, I’d sit in the corner and cry.
As we got older, their youngest daughter and I became really close. I’d spend full weeks in the summer at their house, and we’d have weeklong slumber parties.
However, just before 6th grade, my mom got married and we moved away. I saw their youngest Daughter (Carrie) once after we moved and that was it.
Then this past summer, I got an invitation in the mail to her WEDDING! It was yesterday, and for the first time in over a decade their family, my mom and I were all re-united. It was wonderful. It felt like little time had really passed, and hopefully we’ll manage to keep in touch this time! 🙂
I’ve attached some photos, some from when we were younger, and some from the wedding. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do 🙂
