“Hard to say goodbye” (Dreamgirls)

Sept 20, 2010

The end of September meant that our awesome au pair, Matthias (Matthew), has been with us for a whole year and would have to go home soon.  A week before he left, Nicolas arrived to take his place. It was very hard to say goodbye to Matthew. He was part of our family for a year, and the kids loved him a whole lot.  Matthew came to dinner the night before he left for good. The kids got to give him a gift and play with him one last time. The kids knew that Matthew had to go back to Switzerland to see him family, but I am sure it was much harder for us to watch them say goodbye than for them, because  they didn’t really understand what that meant. Hard to believe that Matthew arrived to our family before Max was even born! He was here for Max’s entire first year and through so many changes in all of their lives!
