I put in my two weeks notice today. I have been with this family for 4.5 months working 35 hours a week caring for their infant twins and taking home $425 every week. They seemed a little surprised that I was going. I'm surprised they thought they could keep a nanny for more than a few months for so little pay. They were nice enough, but the nickle and dime type, always trying to find a way to save a penny. That's their right, and it is my right to earn more. They were unable or unwilling to pay more so I'm moving on. My message is this: Parents, pay your nannies well if you intend to keep them.
