It was on a long drive to Ohio back in 2008 when I realized that we needed AuPairMom — so in celebration of (yet another) 8.5 hour ride, here’s an open thread for the long weekend.
This open thread has a special twist though:
To contribute, you must use the phrase “I am grateful for our AuPair because…”
Then add anything you want to about why you’re grateful for her/him. You don’t have to use this exact phrase– a reasonable facsimile will do. Any threads that diverge from this concept of gratitude will be pended for another day. Let’s see what we can make with this challenge!
(Au Pairs-– of course you can join in! Just tell us what you’re grateful for about host families, host kids, this au pair adventure, … )
