We had our good bye dinner for Bun tonight, my Thai au pair. I will miss her so much. But she is off to a good place, to care for "twins on the way!" in San Fran.
Since I am tired and sad to see her go, I just want to say this:
My au pairs are so sweet, intelligent, and interesting. And when I say that, I mean that from the depths of my soul.
If you think that foreign girls who come here are slaves and just want to get married, I challenge you to meet a few au pairs. Not only are they really cool, I look at each one of them and think that they will be something in 20 years, since they are so special now.
