How long do I have to go on feeling something isn't right?
I switched from using a top notch daycare to a nanny when my child turned three and a half so that the nanny could take my child to attend gymnastics and swimming classes. I don't think I was ready for that step myself. I feel like I have a stranger in my house. The nanny has only been with us since Valentine's Day. My husband insists that I give her a chance. How long do I have to go on feeling something isn't right? I don't feel my child is in danger. I just feel something is off. In the beginning of March, we suddenly had a bed bug infestation. I don't really know if I blame the nanny for the bedbugs and can't get past it. I don't know. My daughter likes the nanny but not the way I thought she would. I wanted her to leap up and run to her. I feel like so much of my daily life is not about keeping the nanny comfortable. When it was too cold to walk, making sure there was money for a cab, money for lunch out, responsibility to get her to and from my house in inclement weather. Did I just make a bad pick? How do I know if a nanny is just not right for me?
