This week is bittersweet.  My niece, one of my greatest friends, and nanny to my boys will have her last day at the Heflin house on Friday.  She recently graduated from dental school and will begin her new job on Monday.  Why am I fighting these crocodile tears?

Because Donna Dean has been there for the boys since the beginning. She was the first sitter Austin ever knew.  She started watching him at 6 weeks old until he was 18 months.  

Austin loves his "Nonna".

 There isn't anything that she wouldn't do for him or Jack....


 ...or the rest of the family.

She returned to us when Jack was 11 weeks old and has been watching the boys since.  Okay, here comes the waterworks...

Donna, thank you so much for EVERYTHING you have done for all of us.  Thank you for driving out of your way every day to our home to spend time with the boys.  Thank you for constantly being such a positive influence and loving them with all your heart.  

We love you so much and wish you the very best on this exciting new chapter in your life.
