Nanny in NYC

A modern day Mary Poppins

Wednesday, July 05, 2006


How did you spend your morning? Did you file an expense report? Get four loads of laundry done? Come up with a great idea to solve that big problem your whole project team has been obsessing over? Good for you!

Guess what I did this morning? Can't guess, well here's a visual clue:

Yup, for forty-five minutes this morning I stood out in the rain with two enraptured little boys. Drew and Luke love the trash truck and today we stumbled upon trash/dump truck nirvana.

We stood on Greenwich Street and watched this particular trash truck pick up, lift, dump and then put back seven dumpsters! Each time the truck would lift one we would all chant "Up! Up! Up!" and when it reached its apex we switched to "Dump! Dump! Dump!"

The general consensus, especially once the truck left and we engaged in some serious puddle jumping, was that it was one of the most productive mornings we've had in quite some time.

Much like you -- I embellish time and place a little when writing. ;)
