You tell me often how much you appreciate me and how you couldn't do all of this without me but your words mean nothing when you pull crap on me. When you ask me 2 days before you need a weekend babysitter if I can babysit do not be upset if I tell you I'm busy and remind you that if you had told me WHEN YOU KNEW YOUR ORIGINAL BABYSITTER FELL THROUGH then I could have, don't let your preschool child tell me 2 days before you do that you need me to watch the kids the entire weekend so you and your spouse can enjoy separate vacations. When I tell you I can't and you pull two babysitters out of your ass do not TELL me the babysitter wont show up until 30 min after I'm supposed to leave. I have plans, and you knew about them. I shouldn't have to accommodate YOU. I am here every morning when I am supposed to and I am supposed to leave at the designated time. If you need me to stay late ASK me and most of the time I wouldn't mind. Don't tell me I have to stay late and expect me to like it.
The very next week when you ask me to stay late ONE DAY before you need me don't expect me to cancel my plans to accommodate you, I work 50+ hours for you so when I do make plans I plan on keeping them. I will not cancel them so that you can get your hair done. You have a spouse, maybe he could watch the kids once in a while. When I tell you I can't don't retaliate by telling me that the neighbor is going to drop of her 3 kids. Ask me if I don't mind watching them and next time I better get paid. You get one freebie on me and that's it. Three extra kids are a handful and I refuse to work for free so that you and the mother of the kids can go out to lunch and shop and your spouse and the father of the kids can go to the pool. Also TELLING me that the father will be late, and in the same breath tell me you know I have plans is wrong. Show up on time. I'm really getting fed up with your actions, remember these are your children not mine. You love to remind your oldest that I am the nanny yet who spends the most time with your children? It certainly isn't you and your spouse.
Let's move on to this weekend, where are your kids? That's right here at my house with me and my husband because you decided you wanted to spend the entire weekend drinking. Sure I could have told you no but like the previous weekend if I was to do that you would find a babysitter or two who you've never met and doesn't know your kids to watch them. It's sad when I care more about your kids than you do.
You may have money but that means nothing in the end, one day you will regret not spending time with your children.
