I need some advice from nannies and moms who work TOGETHER.
My boss informed me this morning that she was taking a (recommended) year sabbatical from her company. During this year she will be paid a portion of her salary to work part time pro-bono. As such they do not want to let me go. They've been very communicative about this transition with me and very honest about their personal financial situation. She is going to continue looking for and interviewing for other jobs, and is hoping to be back working at the most within a year. Since I'm such a great nanny (pat on back) and we have a good relationship among all of us they will keep me on full-time while she is home.
This makes me slightly nervous. We occasionally do this on Fridays as she is always home that day, but I'm a little concerned how this will play out day to day. I would love advice on how moms and nannies have made this work well. My boss said she will make some sort of schedule for herself so that I will know if she's working or cooking or cleaning... and I know me and my little guy's activities will continue as normal. Is there anything else that can help us in this transition?
