Nanny Day In The Life Made by a Mom

Twin’s Schedule:
The twins wake up at 7:30am, and I will breastfeed them both in the morning before the nanny comes at 8:00am. Since I will need to leave right around 8:00am, our nanny needs to help the babies get dressed and ready for the day. I leave out their outfits in the morning, to make this easy for her. They usually play from 8:00-9:00 before breakfast. Their favorite morning activities are tummy time, reading books, listening to music, or relaxing in their swings.

They will eat breakfast at 9:00. Breakfast is usually oatmeal and a pureed fruit. Their favorites are bananas, pears, and peaches. After breakfast, they will go down for a nap at 9:30, sleep for 1.5 hours, waking up at 11:00. As soon as they wake up, they each will take a bottle of 4 oz of pumped breast milk that I will leave in the fridge; it will need to be heated up in the bottle warmer. We have two to make warming them faster and easier.

They will have play time again from 11:30-1. During this time, we set up a blanket in the backyard for them to hang out on while they play with toys and watch their older brother explore, or we hang out in the living room and play with toys, or we will take a trip to the local park (which is about 2 blocks from our house).

They will eat a later lunch of pureed veggies at 1:00-1:15. Their favorite veggies are green beans, carrots, and peas. They are definitely not picky eaters, and love trying new foods. After lunch, they will take another nap at 2:00. They will sleep for 1 hour, waking up at 3pm, and will have play time until I come home at 3:30-3:45.

3 Year Old Schedule:
Cameron will wake up for the day at 8:30am and will need help getting dressed for the day. He likes to pick out his own clothes, so I normally leave out 2-3 choices for him to pick from.

He will eat breakfast with the twins at 9:00am. Breakfast usually consists of 1-2 of the following: eggs, toast, cut up fruit, yoghurt, oatmeal, or cereal. I will prepare his breakfast and leave it in the fridge so that it will be easier.

He will have play time from 9:30-12:30. He will eat lunch at 1:00 with the twins. Lunch usually consists of 1-3 of the following: a protein dish (baked fish, baked chicken, lunch meat, or something of the like), some sort of pasta dish, cut up fruits and vegetables, sandwiches, or soup. Again, I will prepare this and leave in the fridge (labeled Cameron Lunch). It may need to be heated up, and cut up. We want to make sure, though, that all meals are eaten at the table, either in the dining room or at the picnic table in the backyard. We have portable high chairs for the twins if you decide to eat outside.

After lunch, he will take a nap at 1:30, sleep for two hours, and wake up at 3:30, when I will be home for the day.

"the nanny", how I hate that phrase. The fridge, the dishwasher, the car..... Us nannies are people, not inanimate objects, an initial, not even the real one would be appreciated! Sorry OP, off my soapbox now! Sounds like a great day!

Sounds like your nanny has a busy but pleasant day.
