you know you are an au pair in usa when... [now edited!!] always introduce yourself with : "Hi! my name is (your name), I'm from (country) and I have (amount of children you are taking care of) children!!" [so true... xD] are drinking the water you used to swim in when you were little (Chlor-Wasser) and you don't mind anymore!

...everybody is greeting you with a "Hi!How are you!" and you can't respond fast enough, so you say it first! [it get's really anoying!]

...the worst thing is, when the dad is working from home know what a S'MORE is. spent all your money at the MALL and you still have nothing to wear [nada!nadica de nada...] hate Dora, The Wiggles and Thomas [older kids here!] say silly instead of stupid [yep...] go to PLAYDATES [oh yeah...]'ve seen more movies in one month than in your whole life at home drive over 30 minutes to a friend and you think it's not far [please kill me! i don't want to drive anymore... =x] only have other Au Pairs as your friends [not only, but almost] can make bacon [também não é assim tão difícil!] say "like" and "totally" every three words [like, no i don't!]

...someone has asked you silly questions like: "do you have cars in Germany?" - "You don't have Thanksgiving?" - "How long does it take to DRIVE to Europe?" ["do they have pizza in Portugal?" true story, há uns dias atrás] don't think it's wrong to have cake AND ice cream. [i don't think it's wrong to have ICE CREAM AND ICE CREAM!] park as close to the store as possible so you don't have to walk even one yard too far [=x yeah... sobretudo porque se for a algum sítio tenho que conduzir mais que 20 minutos... it's makes sense] cherish moments of silence more than ever before [oh boy... i SO do...] notice yourself saying "GOOD JOB" a hundred times a day [more like a million times a day. times 4] wonder why you slept the whole night long so uncomfortable and you notice the next morning, you slept on a barbie, a lollypop, sandtoys etc. [a minha cama já é desconfortável o suficiente. e não ter cortinas e o quarto estar virado a nascente também ajuda muito...]

... you need to be creative to find new punishments because a time-out doesn't work anymore ;-) [no movies for 2 weeks]

... you have to admit to mistakes you never did or put the blame on you day for day're sure you don't want own kids within the next 100 years [my kids won't be like this =P] know now exactly how difficult it was for your parents to have little kids and you feel like saying thanks for all you've done to your mum and dad every day [nowaii!! i was such a nice kid =D]'re ready to drink anytime of the day [not drink, but sleep...] start to love disney movies again and can copy every passage of them've learned what it means to be patient [boy... have i...] know what a LCC is [yeah. and here they suck!] know that you should never SHAKE A BABY!!! take a nap, after you dropped of the kids at school (after being up for just 2h :-D) [all the time you can!] are DRIVING to the busstop to pick up your kids, which is only 200 meters from your house.

...the kids call you mum cause you spend too much time with them [sometimes]

..... you think $160 every weekend just for shopping and coffee are not that much [it's not enough!! nowaii]

... one cup of coffee doesn`t make you awake anymore, it just makes you alive. [shitty shittiest coffee...] or your friends are KELLERKINDER!!!! [oh yeah! \m/] miss the good ol' days when you were able to go to the bakery and get real bread w/ real crust ( not that American sh** called bread..haha) [any food =( ] don't walk into the bank, you use the drive inn to get your money [not here,  but i did it already =D] use Purell instead of washing your hands
