Hi! I started my seven child nanny job on August sixth. As some of you will recall I had some nerves and reservations about accepting a position. So many asked for an update and I wanted to say thanks for the great advice as well.
I arrived to a clean room and seven smiling faces. The three youngest kiddos twenty eight month old twin boys and a four year old girl are my charges. The other four children age seven, nine, thirteen, and fifteen are as nice as can be. Many of you expressed reservations about truly caring for only the three children but so far that has been my experience. My days have started on time and ended on time or early. I think the mom is greatful to have me around which is a nice feeling. Apparently there was a childcare mother in law issue before and I get the impression things did not go so well
The boys and I love to be physically active jumping, playing ball, and hokey pokey while the daughter is all girl and very smart. I might have lucked out on this job but only time will tell. School starts Monday and both parents work in the local ISD so that will be the true test of timliness. My only concern is the discussion of an eighth! baby...but I think at that point mom would stay home full time. This is only a school time position so even if she did get pregnant the baby would arrive during summer. Thanks again for the advice.
