I just had a talk with the mom. It turns out, there is a reason that she’s been giving me so much time off this week. She decided that it’s not going to work with me being the nanny. She is sending me home and is going to find someone else.
I have mixed feelings about this. I’m kind of upset that she didn’t give me a chance to really get settled in. I’ve really only had one day by myself to work with the kids. She’s basing this decision off of one day of getting used to things.
I’m also upset because this was a great job and I could have earned a ton of money.
I’m also upset because I gave up a job at home that I can’t get back now for this.
Then again, I’m kind of relieved. I don’t know if I could spend six months with them and keep my sanity. The family is crazy.
I just hope I can find a job at home that can help me pay for school. ‘Cause I was kinda counting on the money, ya know?
So if anyone in Williamsburg knows of a place that’s hiring, let me know because I’m on the job hunt again.
I guess this ends the days of the Nanny in the Attic. I think I’ve learned a lot from the few days that I’ve been here. I’ve gotten some ideas about how I will raise my kids and how I won’t raise my kids. Food is always cheaper at WalMart. Kids don’t like being forced to do school work over the summer. And most importantly, there is such a thing as too much hand sanitizer.
