Long overdue...The Manny

Have you ever had a best friend?  Someone you trust completely, and who has been there for you, and you for them, over the years and years?  I've been blessed with a handful of such people in my life.

Joseph is one of those people.

Last fall, as we struggled to pay for childcare and balance other expenses without sinking further into the hole, my very dear friend Joseph offered to come be our nanny.  It seemed a win-win situation--he could make a bit of cash, we could spend less overall on childcare and hopefully get to a better space financially, during the next year and a half before Noah starts school.

But there is so much more to it than that.

To tell you that story, I have to take you all the way back to 1991.

Step back in time with me to another place....Collapse )

And so we arrive at today. Joseph's first day in his new official capacity as nanny to the Moore-Barnes kids. Good luck, Joseph, and thank you. You are the best brother a gal could want.
