An Au Pair forever.

This story was told to me by one Au Pair whom I asked for permission to share it with you.

As you may know, an Au Pair comes for a year or two and then returns home. Most Au Pairs bond with kids and host family and become forever friends.

This Au Pair has been taking care of three boys from three to six year old. She has bonded with kids closely and they love her as a family member. The boys say to her that they love her very much and are holding their arms wide open as they can saying, I love you this much.  Kids try to show her their love an appreciation because they feel that just saying the words may not be enough. The youngest one recently said to the Au Pair, you are the best girl I have ever seen in my entire life.” It is such a compliment coming from a three year old boy. 🙂

Here is the story. One day the whole family was walking in the park and approached a fountain where the children saw a lot of coins. The mom explained that it is a special wishing fountain and many people believe that tossing a coin in a fountain brings miracles and wishes come true.

Of course, kids wanted to toss a coin and make a wish too. The mom gave the kids each one coin and told them to make a wish by whispering into a coin, closing their eyes, and tossing that coin into the Magical Water to ensure that their wishes come true.

The oldest boy immediately said that he needed another coin because he had two wishes that were very important. The mom asked him what his wishes were. The first one, he said, I wish for one close family member, who was sick, to get better. The second one, the boy sad, I would like my Au Pair to stay forever with us.
