Caren, an au pair in New York, takes care of 5 year old twins: C and S. This is Caren’s story:
“My host family has two boys. They are twin 5 year olds. C is 1 minute older than S. The boys need to go to the potty before going to school in the morning or going out with their parents. C takes a very long time to make a poop poop, and he always refuses to sit on the potty after a few minutes. He comes out and said in a very sad voice, “I can’t make a poop poop, Caren. I don’t want to make a poop poop.” At that time, S will go the toilet and check the poop poop and speak like an adult. “C, that’s not enough. Try again. You need to believe in yourself and then you can make a big big poop poop.” They make us all burst into laughter.”
Caren has another story that shows why she loves being an au pair.
“S once said to his grandmother, “Grandma, I fall in love with someone.” His grandma was so surprised and asked,”Who?” He said “Caren.” And grandma asked him how much he loves Caren, he said, “I love Caren from the earth to the moon and come back to the earth – that much.”
