UPDATE on Nanny Generals Needed to Outline Leaving Campaign
I posted last week about how I got my dream job and was very afraid to quit my current nanny job because my MB is unreasonable and we have a cruise coming up. Well, today was the day I gave my notice. She took it better than expected- said she was disappointed and that she could tell something was up. I still have (almost) 3 full weeks left with them so this should be interesting. She did not mention the cruise so I'm hoping that means she's ok with me not going and won't try to charge me or something ridiculous. I still don't feel like I'm free and clear yet but I'm so relieved! I told her I was leaving for a more consistent schedule. What I really wanted to say is that I'm leaving because you treat me like dirt, you teach your children to look down on "poor people", you change my schedule every other day without remorse, you're a SAHM who does everything in her power to avoid your children, you refuse to come home until the kids are asleep even when they are crying for you, etc, etc, etc This is my exit from childcare. I want to say to all you career nannies out there that I have so much respect for you. This is a tough and sometimes thankless job and it takes an amazingly strong person to dedicate their life to raising other people's children. You rock! I guess it just wasn't for me. Goodbye All and best of luck in your nanny adventures!
