Summer activities for kids!


As far as I know, keeping kids busy while they are at home all day is a big challenge. For Au Pairs it represents a time to be brilliant and to suggest new games and activities to their host children.

Until the end of the countdown



Yesterday, I sent the last documents to my au pair agency. I am very happy because it means I’ll get soon my flight details. Everything is paid, everything is done. My host family can’t wait to welcome me in their home. I hope time runs fast till August.

May is gone!

OMG May is gone! Something’s changed in these months!!

  • The 16th April, I got my first tattoo. It’s really significant for me because it means a new beginning. I have a bad scar on my belly, caused by an urgent appendicitis surgery, and I’ve always felt ashamed about it. I’ve covered it with a feather moved by the wind. It represents freedom, change and wish fulfillment. The hope to fly up to my goals.

  • I’ve joined the gym! I have to loose 7 kg before leaving. If I add extra kilos in USA at these ones, I will probably become overweight. So I have to become fit and trained as soon as possible to avoid problems.
  • I became a Cheerleader! yeahh I feel like an american girl. There is an american football team near my place and a friend of mine asked me to join this team. It’s really funny and I learned lot of things about this sport. It is much more interesting as it seems even if it’s a bit aggressive.

I am increasingly closer to US!!
