Our nanny Lika is going back to Georgia. We are going to miss her very much. She started working for us last fall while I was teaching at the University of Colorado. Most recently she had been coming to watch Spencer so I could get work done on our bathroom remodel. Now I will be hiring temporary babysitters a couple times a week to fill that gap. I’m sure none of them will be as good as Lika. She took Spencer for long walks, was really great at playing with him, cleaned up around the house, and on her last day, she baked us some tasty Georgian cheesy pastries. She also fit in with our philosophy of letting Spencer play with most anything that isn’t too fragile or dangerous. On Thursday at some point Spencer decided to climb in to a trash can. What an adventurous guy! Spencer doesn’t really show his enthusiasm for Lika in the picture with her, but trust me, he was normally extremely happy with her.
Good luck with life in Georgia Lika. May our paths cross again.
