I wasn't supposed to fall in love with the nanny.Thoughts on A Little Too Late: Oh, my heart. Hannah and Charlie were so completely lovely I can hardly stand it. Charlie's still reeling from his wife's betrayal and he feels like he's stuck in a rut. Hannah's dealing with her own issues along with being essentially alone in a foreign country.
When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I've been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I've been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.
For nine long months, I've been failing.
When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I'd found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I've been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I'd packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.
She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she's so much more.
The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn't. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.
They're both a little lost and a lot lonely and they are just WONDERFUL together.
I genuinely adored both Hannah and Charlie. She's gentle and soft-spoken. She devotes herself to Charlie's children and teaches Charlie how to be a father to them. The way she slips so seamlessly into their lives was incredibly sweet.
It certainly hits Charlie straight in the chest. For the first time, he sees what it feels like to be part of a family unit. For all Hannah is just the nanny, she's quick to include him and she treats his children like they matter to her.
*goes all swoony again*
Okay. I adore the two of them. I love how Hannah makes Charlie want to be more than he is. I love how Charlie helps Hannah find herself. They're perfectly matched, it just takes a while for them to figure that out.
