This Sept. 22 to 28 is National Nanny/Sitter Recognition Week. It's a special time to stop and let your child's caregiver know that they are amazing superhumans, and if you could commission a large statue of them to be displayed in the local park you totally would. But statues aside, another simple, sweet way to pay tribute and show thanks is via a social media post. Below are some Instagram captions for National Nanny/Sitter Recognition week, to help you pay homage to your favorite nanny/sitter, and let them know how much you appreciate all that they do. Because they do a freaking lot. Some of these suggestions are sillier than others, but I'm sure all nannies/sitters could use a good laugh. Especially after chasing your child barefoot across a floor strewn with Legos.
In all seriousness though, families (and society as a whole!) are truly indebted to our childcare workers. They perform a vital role for so many of us: whether it's a nanny who takes the kids after school so you can work, or a sitter who pops in for a few hours so you can meet up with a friend or go on a walk, or just try to remember what it's like to talk about something other than "Paw Patrol." We call them "lifesavers" for a reason. And really, we can never thank them enough. But we can try.
