And We’re Off…

Hey – that would work for school and Veteran’s day as the kids are off today…but alas, I was talking about the nanny search.

I’ve reached out (so far) to 4 people who look good on paper. I know I’ll be sending a few more inquiries out tonight after the kids go to bed as well. I really hate this process. It’s almost more nerve-racking than dating! I suppose mostly because it’s not just my life I’m messing with…it’s my kids’ lives. You send an email to someone who looks good and hope and pray that they’ll email you back. And then if THAT goes well, you ask them to meet in person and see if THAT goes well. See the parallels here?! (It’s a good thing I met Mike online – and it worked – or this would be even more awful LOL!)

I keep thinking that perhaps I should go through some agency somewhere…but I just can’t justify spending the money on that. I have in my head that the agency would do exactly what I’m doing. . . look through profiles online and then do some background research on people I like. And I suppose having someone do that for me would give me a lot of time back…but this is one of those things where I don’t know who I’ll like – or not like – until I see it.

So…wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed that a.) I’ll find a good one, and b.) it’ll be my LAST nanny!
