Good-Bye parties for your Aupair
The time has come, the year is over and it flew by. You are going to miss your aupair, she has become a part of the family and you know it will be tearful good bye. But you also know that now you have a new family member and your life has been enriched. Families do good byes in different ways. I always ask what the aupair wants, sometimes they want a big party and other times just a quiet dinner either with their host family or including some close friends. We have done it all from big blow out back yard parties that went until 4 in the morning to a quiet dinner out at the aupairs favorite restaurant. Whatever you do, make sure you do something to mark the end of your year together. The Aupair has taken care of your most precious possession your children. Honor her and thank her.
