Being an Au Pair is full of surprises; surprises that aren't nearly as boring as you might imagine.

Like being told by a 6 year old on a Wednesday morning to stay in bed.  As if this wasn't delightful enough, 13 minutes later, I got this:

Plain yogurt with granola, green tea, bread and butter, and a glass of apple juice just the way I like it: 3 parts water, 1 part apple juice.

These girls learn quick.

So you see, it's not all bad, this job.

Except, guess who cleaned the kitchen from their breakfast making project?


  1. You had to wait a whole 13 minutes for your breakfast in bed!


    Obviously you're not strict enough!

    Do you think Mary Poppins would have stood for that?

    All the best


    P.S. Don't really approve of your breakfast? Where's all the cholesterol and stuff like that? No wonder you're so skinny!

  2. That's cute. So by the time my son is 6, maybe I'll be getting stuff like this? So far he hasn't worried much about my breakfast needs.

    That is some seriously watery apple juice. And you're missing a few pastries. But still, adorable.

  3. I like the strawberry tray ; )

  4. Awwww that is so sweet. I see you have the Starbucks London mug, which I know because I have the Paris one. Overpriced but so cute that I couldn't resist!
