TODAY show - New Face of Mary Poppins, part 2

I hope you got a chance to see the TODAY show segment this morning. If not, my great friend Michelle LaRowe Conover sent me the segment link early this morning. Check it out and let me know what you think of specialized / niche nannies. This was a great positive story on nannies! While my interview wasn't included, it was great to see some of my wonderful friends on camera including Myrna Alphonse, Sue Downey, and MaryAnn X. Meddish. If you look closely, you can see my back and my nice green shirt I was wearing. I'm also thrilled that the opening shot was of ADCAN material we had on the Nanny Support Group table, and TANG got a great view of their information as well. Overall, a great segment and positive exposure for our industry.

See what's new over at Nanny Adventures

My friend Alice has a fun blog of things that go on in her corner of the nanny world. She's got a new post on how to get some fun freebies and how to save on shopping - just in time for the holidays.

But my favorite so far is the Lead Warnings ... this is a must read for everyone and will definitely make you smile.

New Face of Mary Poppins

While I was at Nannypalooza earlier this month, the TODAY show was there, interviewing conference attendees who specialized in a certain field of nannying - infant care, multiples, special needs and in my case - working for divorced parents.

Those interviews are scheduled to air THIS THURSDAY - October 30. The focus will be on specialized nannies. I invite you to watch or set your Tivo or DVR's.

After the segment, come back and share your thoughts on the New Face of Mary Poppins.

My wish is to make this a place for you to come back to again and again, and that you'll share with everyone you know. I hope you'll offer comments, suggestions and share with me your experiences.

2009 INA Conference Announced

The International Nanny Association will host its 24th Annual Conference April 23-26, 2009 in Dallas, TX.

I highly recommend this conference to anyone in the in-home child care industry who has never attended an industry conference before. This Thursday - Sunday event is filled with networking opportunities, workshops, phenomenal speakers, industry leaders, and much more.

The INA also recognized an outstanding nanny in her profession by recognizing the Nanny of the Year. As a past INA Nanny of the Year (1997), I encourage all nannies to bring out their best and reach for this accomplishment and be recognized by your peers for the work you love.

Watch for more details on the conference as they become available.

Have you attended an INA Conference? What is the most important thing you've learned from attending Conference? What is your favorite memory?
