Warmest greetings from my family to yours!
A few months ago, my children's "yaya" (babysitter) of 17 years decided to move back with her family and start taking care of her own grandchildren. She came to us when my second child was only an infant. I would not have managed to cope when we lost James had it not been for yaya's strong and reassuring presence at home. She took on the role of "mom" to my kids while I went out to search for our missing family member and worked to bring home the bacon, so to speak.
Our beloved yaya Merlene stayed with us for 17 years.
It has been a totally different life since then. A new journey for me and my kids... a grand time at reviving and redecorating our home... Oh... and I'm cooking again.
My kids... how they have grown!!!
Believe me, it's a whole new adventure for me... Real motherhood at its best!
