20,000 views on my blog.

Another blogging milestone. Today I reached 20,000 page views of my blog! I’m excited to receive this many page views.  Thank you to everyone for spending a little time with my blog.

I started Go Au Pair blog at September 2010 to support Host Families and Au Pairs in Philadelphia and suburban, Montgomery, Bucks County and close NJ. It took me one and a half years to reach 20,000 page views of my blog.

My blog contains 132 posts and 28 pages. Many people contributed to my blog, writing interesting posts and even series of posts. I would like to thank you my former Au Pair Lala from South Africa, who wrote My Au Pair Year.

The host mom Anna, who is in her six year of hosting au pairs,  kindly contribute to this blog. She wrote many posts which are very  popular in her series From An Au Pair mom. Anna also answered many questions that new host families often ask. How can a young Au Pair be a good caregiver?  Which country is the best au pair from?   No doubt that many of her posts have so many hits!

I also would like thank you the Au Pair Juliana,  from Brazil, who lives now in Bucks County near Philadelphia, for writing her wonderful Au Pair Journal, and many other Au Pairs. I can’t do this without your help and support.

I enjoy working as a Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair. We do many interesting things together with Au Pairs from my cluster: going to the interesting  places, organizing parties, volunteering and supporting each other like a big family. This blog is the place where we can share our wonderful experience with each other and you, my dear reader.
If you are reading this blog for the first time welcome to Au Pair world!
Thanks for checking out my blog  and I hope you’ll return soon!

YOU KNOW YOU’RE AN AU PAIR WHEN…

Hi, everyone!

Here are my friends Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency and I at the Brazilian Festival  which we had recently, here, in Bucks County, near Philadelphia. It was the best event ever and we had a lot of fun.

Spring is coming, the weather is getting warmer and warmer and our host kids are becoming VERY excited about all the activities we’re about to do.

I often find myself more excited about some things than my kids, though…

and that’s the topic of this post.

  You know you’re an au pair when...

You have a list of  your favorite Sesame Street videos (and insist with a two year-old that that’s better than others).

Here’s a list of mine:

Ok Go: colors

C is for Cookies

Elmo’s song

Elmo’s got the moves

Feist’s 1234

Ricki Gervais’ Elmo Lullaby

Well, that’s it for today. I’ll be back soon with more fun stuff.

See ya!

My beautiful Brazil, Lindo maravilhosa!

Lindo maravilhoso  (leen-doh mah-dah-veel-yoh-zoo) is a Brazilian saying that literally translates to Beautiful, Marvelous!

Hello All,

As you may know, I am from Brazil and we have three more Au Pairs from Brazil in Philadelphia cluster of  Go Au Pair agency. Jessica, another Au Pair from Brazil, suggested switching  an aupair meeting to a Brazilian Festival. Sounds like a great idea, a Brazilian Festival, here  in Bucks county, near Philadelphia.

Our Brazilian party is coming and here’s a few things you should know about Brazil.

Our flag is composed by four colors:

Green representing our forests;

Yellow representing our gold;

Blue representing our Sky and

White representing peace.

The stars represent the Brazilian states and “ORDEM E PROGRESSO” means “Order and Progress”.

Brazil is located in South America, here’s a map

Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rousseff, was elected in October 31, 2010. She’s the 36th president.

The President’s official residence is located in Brazil’s capital, Brasília.

Brazil is famous for its success in Soccer World Cups (we are 5-time champions), for our famous soccer players Pelé, Ronaldo and Kaká, for instance.

You will be hearing from me soon,  the next part is coming.
