I don't know how to respond to this. The family I worked for recently hired a new weekend nanny. She works Sat & Sun from 10-8. She has only been with the family since the beginning of May. Right away, I got a bad sense from her. It turns out she is interested in a full time job, most specifically my job. The mother actually had a sit down with me and said, "*Jill is interested in working for us on a more regular basis, so I wanted to sit down and talk to you about what you think your plans are through next year". She was nice about it but mentioned that after three years, she would understand if I was feeling burned out. She made several suggestions. One is that I reduce my hours, and she could pick up one or two of my days, or I could take the weekend job and she could assimilate into the weekday job or nothing could change at all. Of course, I want nothing to change at all, but the very fact that she raised these issues with me after such a short time with new nanny has me heartbroken. She told me she didn't need an answer now and she assured me that Jill didn't know that she was talking to me. She presented it as a possible out for me if I was looking for one. I don't get it. I know that my performance is consistently awesome. I get that Jill might be dazzling them right now, but she is the new and fresh face. She strikes me as sneaky and up to no good. Let's see her three years down the road! How do I recover from this? I'm mad at myself that I feel so hurt, but I cannot shake this awful feeling! *not her real name.
