I work for a single mom and have for 7 months. She is a great employer. I have met the father as I see him one day a week when he takes the children for dinner and sometimes on Friday if it is his weekend and I am late. The mother told me today that the father and his new girlfriend want to take the children for the whole month of August to Martha's Vineyard and would like to take me. She said it would make her feel better if I went, although they can certainly hire a nanny there. I don't mean to sound horrible, but if I don't go, I will get paid for the whole month anyway. Is it fair to accept the offer with a high weekly rate? I don't know what to expect from the girlfriend. She seems like a reasonable person, she is actually a school administrator so it isn't as if she is anti child. Some guidance please. Either way, I want to work it to my advantage. The only thing I know is that the father has a home there and extended social network in the area. Part of me thinks I should be careful not to price myself out of the job so that might meet some interesting people? How to best handle this to keep everyone happy? Obviously, if I chose to go, it's a win for the children. Has anyone ever traveled or spent time with the husband and new wife or girlfriend?
