Parenting a toddler is an emotional roller coaster. So frustrated and annoyed one moment, so in love one moment later. On rough mornings where Lake is all endless whinging tears, turning the reigns over to Luisa, our magician au pair, is a godsend. This was a happy scene from which to leave work. Even though Lake likes to say, “I don’t want you to go to work Mama,” he seems to have a better time of it when I do. When Luisa emerged from her bedroom and arrived on the scene, it was like a ray of sunshine came out and dried up all the tears. It takes a village as the saying fondly goes. A perfect day, I’m glad you got to spend it with Luisa!
