Meet Regarding Nanny: Kellie Geres
Wow! What a year this has been. One year of Regarding Nannies. It’s been a whirlwind ride, and I’m hanging on, looking forward to this next year.
When you aren’t Nannying or writing for Regarding Nannies, how do you spend your time?
Writing and working on the blog every week takes a lot of time, but when not working on Regarding Nannies, I can usually be found on my computer, typing away on ADCAN – Association of DC Area Nannies business, as I serve as the current president. I’m honored to be part of an amazing group in the DC area, which celebrates its 25th year in September. I also enjoy traveling, spending time with family in Richmond and in Minnesota where I grew up. I’m close with all my family, and live the furthest away from everyone, so I treasure the time we have together. My grandmother and I are very close. I have learned so much from her, and we share a love of reading. I’m an avid reader – I am never without a good book, or two or three. My other favorite past time is scrapbooking – I love to scrapbook – wish I made more time to do that. I enjoy making books for others and my greatest scrapbook accomplishment was a Heritage Album for my grandmothers 85th Birthday, spanning her life and the lives of family members.
How have your relationships with children changed you as a person?
Being a nanny for 21 years, I’ve learned a few things about myself and children …
Patience is a virtue
Caring for teenagers really does cause gray hair
Porta-potty’s really do look like refrigerators
Melting ice cubes on a hot day in Atlanta can entertain a four year old for long periods of time
My family will never understand what I do, but love me anyway
