So much love to her

04:00 Yannie 52 Comments

April was lucky enough to be grown up in a their family in her first 3 years after born, or I should say that I was lucky to have her taking care of my precious first born.

I had to admit that I worried, puzzled and concerned initially whether she could help me babysitting my new born when I was at work. Never did I expect the nanny and her family love my baby so much.

I will never forget her help in babysitting my elder daughter in her first 3 tender years. I was thankful as whenever I went picking up my baby, my baby was already slept, fed and dressed up well. She took very good care of April, and April was a happy and active baby. Needless to say, other than herself, her husband and her 4 grown up daughters love April dearly too.

When May was 1 year old, I decided to take April to May's nanny's house, due to the distance from her house to my office was nearer, and May was too young to switch nanny. I remember I felt terribly bad when seeing April's nanny shedding her tear upon hearing my decision.

Each time when I heard May's nanny complaining about April's tantrum and whines, I felt so doubtful on my decision for switching April to her house. She was loved by her own nanny and her family, but she was complained by her new nanny.

I still let April visit her nanny and put up a stay at her nanny's house during her school holiday. 
April sure likes to visit her and stay with her, because she would bring April to the mall, watching movie and dining at April's favourite outlet, Sushi King.
 
She and her family treated my April like their youngest daughter, albeit she herself has four grown up and beautiful daughters
 
All pictures that I put here were all taken from April's Cassie Jie Jie (her 4th daughter) and 三姐 (her 3rd daughter) 's FB.

More pictures in the below slide show. If you view the pictures, you will believe that they really love my April so much. Pictures were all taken at  三姐 and Cassie's ROM. They made April  their flower girl. They made April the centre of attraction in all their family functions. April is blessed to have her 奶妈 and her whole family.

  4. So sweet of April's nanny and her daughters. We sent Ian to a nanny when he was 2 yo but it lasted only 6 months. He always cried and refused to get down from the car when I dropped him at the nanny's every morning. He also told me the nanny always scolded and beat him on his hands. He was a curious (still is)boy and would touch anything within his reach. The grandparents took over the babysitting job soon after as they couldn't bear their only grandchild suffer. Ahahaha..

  5. Just like my girl. She was taken care by her nanny till I graduated from my degree. She's already in year one at that time. Now she's grown up, yet she still visits her nanny who stays not far from us.

  8. You are so blessed to meet good people always! This nanny must be heaven sent to love your child like hers. I often heard horror stories about nannies in KL who traumatized the children and parents.

    1. There was a famous case in KL that came out in newspapers. A nanny took in about 4-5 young infants for day care. How did she cope so well much to the parents' satisfactions? She still could play mahjong with the neighbours in her house every afternoon while the kids slept Zzzzzzz.


      She fed them all water spiked with brandy! Muahahahahaha

    I also make it a point to at least visit Raimie's babysitter during Raya. ALso, at year-end, when Raimie receives his trophies for excellence in school.

    A way of thanks to her for taking good care of our child during their formative years. Don't you afree, Yan? :)

    Well, when April been taken away, mom really had a bad time. She cried every night. Its like her precious been taken away. It took almost months for her to recover and accept her absence.
    SK, you are right. I am totally agreed regarding how April behave. She's well-mannered, behave, smart and intelligent. She's so love by us probably she's the youngest in our family.

    1. It's horrible to hear and read news about monstrous nannies who work and treat the children under their care as money generator. No love involves in the process and the children grow up hungry for attention and spoiled.
