Our nanny, who we've treated like gold, paid well and have given quite a bit of time off to has grown increasingly hostile. She comes in in a bad mood and is starting to be snotty to me. I'm warning her tomorrow if she doesn't shape up she will be dismissed with no severance. This is unacceptable and if she is this short and mean with me, I cant imagine how she is with my children (2-under 4). Has anyone else dealt with this behavior? What causes it? My husband suggests we wait it out for another 2 weeks as she is sure to return to her "trial period" behavior in anticipation of a smokin' bonus. I don't understand why nannies cannot be consistent. Anyone? Anyone?
