• Nanny

    I hate to say this, but I think our summer ‘nanny’ is really lazy. I picked her as she impressed me at the interview. She’s a 27 year-old married 2nd grade teacher. Very easy to talk to… which I always look for. I don’t want it to be awkward with someone in your house so many hours a week. And she’s not all bad, the girls do seem to have…

  • Summer Nanny

    I finally hired a summer nanny! She is coming over tomorrow for me to show her around, get to know the girls better, discuss the schedule going forward, etc. I’m excited, but really anxious too.

  • Hire Help?

    My COVID test was negative. Thank God! The girls still have stuffy noses, and… they both have dentist appointments tomorrow which we booked months and months ago.

Although I guess we wouldn’t have help overnight, but anything would be better…

  • Babysitters

    Is it bad I’m stalking Facebook for girls that work at our daycare… hoping maybe one or a few of them would want to watch our girls from time to time? I feel like since they already know Nora and Nadia, plus Nadia is awful with me ever leaving her, even with Eric lately. I friended one so far and also sent her a message. I just feel like we…
