In brief: Yes.

The relationship between nannies and their children can span the entire spectrum from indifference to pure love.
It's a different type of relationship than the one that he has with his mom. In your role, it's always good to re-emphasize how much his mom is thinking about him, missing him, loving him, glad that he's having fun, and how she can't wait to see him soon. =).
