    Ok, you creative types! I need your help. Our nanny is leaving us on August 3. (It's ok, we will miss her, but I get to stay home with the kids now! :cool1: ) We really love her and she and DS have the sweetest relationship. She has a great relationship with DD as well- she was DD's preschool teacher for 2 years before we stole her! Anyway, I want to do something nice for her. I thought of a scrapbook, but I don't have tons of pictures of her and the kids. Mostly the kids. Should I do a mini book of the kids? Or something else? HELP! I don't have tons of time left (nothing like procrastination!)!!

    Yes. Do a book of the kids and include any photos you have of her and them even if there are not many.

    You also want to ask the kids (if they are old enough) what their favorite memories are, things they did, things they like about her, things they will miss (like was she a good cook, storyteller, tickler).

    Include your memories too.
