What do our au pairs really think of us Host Moms?
Every now and then I wonder about this.
Au Pairs see us at our very worst mommyness (e.g., wet hair, no makeup, screeching about laundry) and at our very best (snuggling our kids, solving problems, singing in the car). Au Pairs also see what we can’t see — because we’re too crazy-busy to take time out to reflect on what a great job we’re doing as moms.
Au Pairs have the inside scoop on us host moms. But most times, host moms never find out exactly what it is we do that you au pairs think is wonderful, because it seems impolite to ask for specific examples of how great we are.
So, let me (aupairmom) ask on behalf of all host moms:
What do you see when you see us, your host moms, at our very best?
