These children in front of me are the perfect example to capture my feelings about Nanny and Me releasing across the country. They embody everything about this world that is gorgeous: imagination, innocence, and boundless hearts.
Writing my book was a labor of love for these very kids smiling in front of me. I think to myself: will they buy Nanny & Me? Will it find a home on their bookshelves, snuggly between Goodnight Moon and Where The Wild Things Are? (childhood favorites of mine) Will their working parents read it to them and feel a sense of relief that someone out there "gets it" - gets their guilt; their fear and their hope.
I put all of my hopes and dreams into my book. I wish I could explain more eloquently how truly fortunate I feel to have the opportunity to travel the USA promoting my message for families everywhere. So, instead of trying to find the words, I'm going to make you a promise:
If you let my baby into your lives; your children's lives; your grandkids lives ... I promise to be here to celebrate those new memories with you; and be here to help you find the comfort and joy in this transitional period of your lives. Welcoming a nanny or babysitter into your home is going to be a marvelous moment, and I want to hear about it! Write me; keep in touch on Facebook and share these triumphs with me! I wrote the book for YOU ... And this journey is just beginning. Take me with you, and I promise to take you with me.
Thank you for making my dreams come true! Here's to the future and what it holds. Nanny and Me is about to find its place in hearts and homes. My love goes with you all, always ...
