This has been a hard year for me and not an easy one for my family. We've had the same nanny since March-ish and she is okay. Definitely, no worries about her being poached. I don't have a lot of liquid assets beyond what I will need for the basics of Holiday giving. I understand I have to contribute to teacher's gifts and the like, but I am in no mood to give this nanny a gift or bonus. Is anyone else with me on this one? She is getting over a week of paid vacation. I will see her on the 22nd of December and not again until the 2Nd of January. That is an awful lot of vacation time at one clip. Why have so many of you set such an awful precedent for over tipping people at the holidays? I'd feel better about doing this if I knew some of you would get on board.
