And So It Goes…

I learned today that our beloved Nanny Jessica will be moving in 2 months. To say that I’m bummed is an understatement. And the kids are at an age where I think this will be a pretty big impact for them as well.

I’m incredibly happy for Nanny Jessica, as this move means great things for her – and I’m a firm believer in doing things that are right for you; but obviously…this sucks!!

And it has to make one wonder…Nanny Jessica is our 9th nanny. Yes, you read that right. NINE. I’m here and I know exactly why each nanny has left us (or been fired…), and it still makes me pause and wonder… are my kids THAT bad? And then…I know that they aren’t. I mean, they are definitely kids, but they’re good kids. So…does that mean that Mike and I are terrible employers? I don’t think so…I mean, I think I’m incredibly flexible (it helps that my job is flexible with me so I can be flexible with my nanny). And I know I’m grumpy in the morning, but after the coffee kicks in, I’d like to think that I’m relatively pleasant. And I try to not butt in and let the nanny be in charge when she’s here…

So … I guess that just means we’re left with lousy luck.

Keep your fingers crossed for us that we’ll find a wonderful replacement!

  1. You are fantastic and reasonable bosses, and your children are sweet and wonderful. I’ve been lucky to have been with you all so long. Don’t even worry about that!

  2. What a blow! While I hope everything goes well for Nanny Jessica, I hope even more that you can find a new nanny who is as good. Anyone I know who has had a nanny seems to lose/fire them at about the same rate as you have. Wishing you well and wanting the nanny search task to be an easy one for you.

  3. I don’t envy you. I know how much you all loved Nanny Jessica. Good luck finding a replacement.
