Well let's find a word that rhymes with DUCK

I've come to the conclusion that you will eventually read about the rest of Nina's trip.  Like when I feel like it.  But I want to write about something.  Because it happened today and it's hilarious.  In my opinion.
Ok so Fien and I went on a walk to feed the ducks...
See aren't they cute?
And look how much fun she's having!

Then we were walking back.  And it was as if every thing that could go wrong did.  Because first a duck started coming toward us scaring her into a backwards walk.  Then she does this drunken stumble kind of thing.  Then she catches herself on a patch of grass on the ground...that wasn't actually ground.
Do you see where this is going?

Yes that's right.
As if in slow motion, Fien fell INTO THE LAKE!
I am a horrible horrible nanny.

Ok, I was holding her hand, so actually I had her out of there before she even knew what happened.  And yes she was crying but she wasn't hurt in any way and my hugs were enough to calm the flood gates.  And yes she was soaked from head to toe, but I quickly got her undressed and into the clean clothes I always have in the stroller.  Then I took off one of my two shirts to let her dry her face.
And by the time we got back to the house, she was totally fine.

And by the time Mama got home, we were laughing about it.  Because really...this is all I can think of...

I'll say it again...horrible...horrible nanny.

Word of the day: eenden - ducks
