I originally planned on writing a daycare update after Charlie’s first day. Unfortunately, my internet has been down for a couple of days.
So without further ado, here’s an update on Charlie’s first 3 days at daycare.
I arrived at daycare around 8:30 and planned to stay for about 30 minutes to help him adjust. The second we got there he asked to be put down and ran over to the toy vacuum. From that Continue reading
So, the nanny that I didn’t like decided to quit. Funny enough, it hurt my feelings, but I am glad that I didn’t have to let her go. After thinking about it, she decided that she would never be able to allow Charlie to cry and she knew that she would spoil him too much. In the end, I really appreciate her honesty. And so we began with round 2 of nanny interviews…
We conducted interviews all last weekend and I’m happy to report that we found someone who we liked right away. She started work on Tuesday and so far she is great with everything that we have asked of her. She puts Charlie down for a nap with ease, she gets him to eat foods that I can’t, he is always laughing with her and as a bonus she cleans the house while he naps. Sounds perfect, right?
I apologize in advance if this post doesn’t flow well. I wrote it while watching, Bachelor Pad. I know, I shouldn’t multitask, but time is short these days!
So, we are not 100% a go with our nanny. We love her already in spite of my jealousy. The only problem… she doesn’t quite know how to discipline Charlie. In fact, she consistently spoils him. I am not strict by any stretch of the imagination, but I do have rules that I like to abide by.
Over the course of the last 2 years, I have been working with 4 partners in a start up opportunity. For a while, it was manageable to both be a mom and work part time. Lately, however, business has picked up a lot. Yay! Unfortunately, that also means that I need help with Charlie. Over the course of the last few months Larry and I have been debating over whether or not we should put Charlie in daycare for some socialization or hire a nanny who can not only watch him but also help around the house. After weighing the pros and cons, we decided to go with a nanny.
