… asks a Host Mom who

I think I’ve always assumed that, like quality and pr0n, “you know it when you see it” if you’ve got a Rock Star Au Pair.
And, I’ve probably also assumed that what makes some one a Rock Star Au Pair really depends on what your family needs and what qualities you hope for. But maybe I’m wrong.
If there is a basic set of qualities that distinguishes a Rock Star Au Pair from a terrific Au Pair, what are these qualities?

What makes an au pair a rock star?
So many of the commenters on the site talk about their “rock star au pair” — they sound great! But I am just not clear what that means. As my husband and I debate whether or not to ask our au pair to extend with us, I keep thinking, “is she really a rock star?”
And I just don’t know because she’s our first au pair.
It would be so helpful to hear your perspective and that of the commenters on the site as to what makes an au pair a rock star.If it helps… Our au pair has been with us for a little over four months. She is great with our two kids and we really love her as a person – we enjoy her company and she immediately fit in and felt like part of our family. She has been really helpful with things like dinner prep and emptying the dishwasher and does all of the childcare related duties we ask her to, but I don’t know if she is a “rock star.”
I just don’t know if we should ask her to extend or not and I’m hoping having a better understanding of what a “rock star” au pair does/is/means will help!
