She has been truly amazing with Conor and Caden. They absolutely love her. Since I am unable to be with them on Wednesdays and Fridays, there are very few people I would want them to be with - and Jackie is certainly high on that list. As many of you know, I love my job and when we found out we were expecting twins, I figured going back to work was not going to be an option. And if it weren't for her, I don't know how I would've done it.
Not only do the boys love Jackie -- I can totally tell when she walks into the house in the morning and their little faces light up -- but she is SO great with them. Managing multiples isn't easy and she accepts the challenge happily. Jackie, ironically being a twin herself, is very familiar with babies and has a great multi-tasking ability. I am super impressed and very fortunate.
I am especially grateful for her sending pics throughout my workday. What Mom doesn't love seeing this???
In addition, I must say that it is really nice to bounce ideas off each other like "Oh, when I put them down for naps, I do this :::great idea here:::" or discussions about how and what we feed them during the day. In short, I am very thankful for her and that is why I chose to write about her during this "thanks"giving week. ;)
And of course, I am ALWAYS thankful for these little nuggets. I just love them so much.
Shaz, Conor James and Caden Francis
