 I started this blog a few years ago to keep my family and friends across the country updated on my life. Well i have not been doing a great job of that. Every time something big comes my way i never seem to 
 blog about it.

That needs to change. 

So lets go back two years. I was in desperate need of new job. I truly hated my job at the daycare i was at since we moved here to Texas. I really wasn't sure what to do so I decide to give nanny-ing a try. God knew exactly what I needed. He placed me with a beautiful, sweet little boy Dylan and his mom Carrie. The first day i met Dylan i knew he and i were going to be best buds. 
Over the next year and nine months this little guy and I spent every weekday together playing at the park, watching his favorite shows like Yo Gabba Gabba and The Backyardagains, going on walks around the neighborhood, visiting the library, singing, reading tons of books, and so much more.
Dylan stole my heart...hard. I learned what it was like to love someone unconditionally, not wanting anything in return....ok maybe a few cuddles in return : ) He taught me that although parenting is not always easy, it is so worth it.

I love that sweet smile.

In October his mom made the wonderful decision to start Dylan in a Montesorri school. I was so excited for him because I know he would thrive in this school setting. The only draw back was that since it is a 5 day a week school she would no longer need a nanny.

I knew this day would come and have been praying that God would prepare me for where ever He needed me. But I did not think it would come this soon. Dylan is only 3, how could it be time?

I was still planning on spending the next few years investing into this amazing little guy.

God had other plans.

We honestly had so much fun together. I loved watching him grow from a 16month old to a bright Cars loving 3 year old who always sang. 

 It breaks my heart knowing that he probably won't remember me when he is older. But, I am comforted knowing that I put everything i had into making sure he knew he was loved and hoping he will always remember that.

 The two years i spent loving on this little guy has changed who i am.

 Love you little buddy!
