Hi all, I need some advice! I recently left my live-in nanny position for a live-out role. The 3 boys I used to look after now have a new nanny and I have a new position with a beautiful little girl. Whilst I was nannying with the 3 boys, we attended a local playgroup. The youngest C (now 20 months) and I both made great friendships and I vowed to go back with my new charge and C's mum said she would let the new nanny know about the playgroup, in the hope she would take him back too.
Today, H (my new charge) and I went to the playgroup and C and his new nanny were there. It was so great to see him and he came over and gave me big cuddles and was 'chatting' away, it was a great 'reunion' as such. However, when it came time to pack up, or when I walked away with H, C wanted me to pick him up, he wanted to come too. I felt really bad. Not only for C, who was probably really confused, but for his new nanny as well. What do I do? Do I distance myself while we are at playgroup, so that C can form a new relationship with his new nanny? Or do I just go with the flow? After all, it is only once a week that we will be in such close confines with each other. Any advice would be great!!
