On Saturday, our nanny got married, and now will no longer be taking care of our little guys for several hours each day. It was such a special event, Nate and Will even got dressed up for the occasion.
They were mostly good for the ceremony, and Will was first to say "hello" when there was a break in the action.
Will agreed that Maren looked beautiful on her wedding day. Nate was so overcome that he had to come over and give her one of his butterfly kisses.
Maren has been a nanny for Nate and Will since November, so she's known them for most of their lives.
Even though she was taking care of someone else's kids, she always showed generous love for our boys.
And in return, they truly loved her back.
Indeed, Maren has a talent for showing love for things she cares about, which bodes well for her as she starts her life with her new husband and, one day, her own family. They will be lucky to have her as part of their lives. And we consider ourselves lucky that she became a part of ours.
Congratulations, Maren. We're happy for you in this joyous moment of you life. But we're a little sad that you're leaving us for life in the big city. But mostly, we're just happy that you've made such a difference in Nate and Will's lives. Thank you.

What a lovely post. Entrusting your children to someone else's care has to be one of the hardest things you can do as a parent and it's lovely to hear what a fantastic job Maren has done.

On a totally unrelated topic, I thought of you when a I saw the Sky (UK satellite TV company) running an ad for Gordon Brown's first PMQs in the style of a WWF (or whatever the wrestling lot call themselves now, not the panda people!) trailer! It's on Wednesday - but of course you already knew that! ;)

Thank you Matt. I want every single picture that you took on Satuday! Give those boys some good kisses for me.

I apologise for the appalling amount of typos in my previous comment, which make it read rather as though it was typed by a blindfolded monkey with its' feet...
