This Nanny's Diary

As if two weren’t enough…

I’ve signed on for yet another job. Number three. Seriously. Although my experience as a nanny for 4-year-old twins this past winter was a complete and utter disaster, I decided to give it another try. You know, I’ll watch these kids during my spare time. All of that fabulous free time that I have when I take naps, read books, exercise and spend time with my fiancé and dog. You know, that imaginary peaceful and relaxing time that I’m willing to sacrifice for the sake of a few more bucks per week.

Today I was approached with the opportunity to be a once-a-week nanny for two sisters (three and five years old) who attend the preschool where I work. Just one day, most probably Monday, every week. It’ll be after school, in the evening, and hopefully not past 8:00 p.m.

Hopefully I’ll have nothing but positive experiences to write about in regard to my second go-ahead as a nanny. Stay tuned, and wish me luck!

At least you'll have lots of fodder for your own personal "nanny diaries."

I finally updated my links and added you to my blog roll! Yey! Now you're just a button away (whereas before I used to have to search through old comments to find you!)

Oh yes, I too have always adored Matt Damon since Good Will Hunting. That movie holds a special spot in my heart b/c it came out the December of my 1st year of college - when I was a lonely, nervous freshman at Boston University. I remember watching it in a Boston theater and feeling for the first time that "hmm. Maybe Boston is home now."

Oi, vay. Good luck! I've been there and done that and I was happy to leave it behind!

Well, we gotta do what we gotta do, right? I always think "it's just one night. It's just 5 hours of your life. 5 hours out of the whole week. You can do it!"

Seems like we're all working second shifts these days, huh?

Like Jill says we do what we gotta do. I admire your drive.
