We have had the same nanny for a year. She's fantastic. She is great with the kids, pets, and housework. My husband and I work a lot and don't necessarily have adequate time for our children, our nanny has completely taken over that role as well as all house hold functions, she also makes sure kids and animals appointments are met and kept up with. We have two children who absolutely adore her. She is not only a great nanny, but a phenominal person as well. She really does go above and beyond normal nanny duties and never complains, we can not imagine day to day life without her. She is very young, but you would never know while having a conversation with her, she carries herself well.
We have always had an open and honest relationship with our nanny, but we have recently just found out that she has been hiding something from us. As I said, she's been with us a year, and we've yet to meet her husband. Curiosity got the best of me and I googled his name. I was shocked to find he is incarcerated. For what, I'm not sure. I'm sure I could find out if I looked into it but as of now I'm still trying to take it in. My biggest question (other than for what, of course) is why? Why hide this from us? I would assume it was a fear of prejudgment. Which kind of hurts my feelings, because I consider us to be very close. But on the other hand, seeing my reaction upon finding out makes me realize that I am a lot more judgmental than I thought I was. She is amazing, but this news makes me uneasy. I don't know how to go about it or what I should do. I have two children and one on the way. As much as we absolutely adore her, I am now just concerned. I am open to any advice, comments, questions.
