The day to day life of a nanny of a 5-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl in south western Ohio.
FINALLY get to see my kids again. Not seen them since Friday. I’ve spent a few hours every day this week checking care.com and sitter city filling out applications for morning jobs that won’t affect the possibility of getting my kids in the afternoon. I can’t wait till we get a real schedule worked out. This is killing me. Thinking about asking for the kids Sunday to take them down to a comic book convention. Ty would be thrilled. Even Kayley has talked about wanting to go.
So Kayley got home from school yesterday and informed me that “You’re 25 now. Soon you’ll be old. If you’re going to have sex you should probably do that soon.” Later when we went to the pool she kept nudging me and nodding toward the really cute life guard. She’s really struggling to grasp that A my love life is none of her business and B I have zero interest in dating or having sex. Though she fully agrees that I don’t have to have children.
we need to learn to stop apologizing for saying no to requests to caring for others when we ourselves feel worn out.
we need to learn it’s alright to be a little bit selfish at times and take care of ourselves.
after all, how else can you be able to care for others if you aren’t cared for yourself?
remember to love yourself! ❤💙💚💛💜
Asked several times this summer what the plan was once the kids start school. Becky avoided and ignored the subject at every turn. Today is Ty’s second day of Kindergarten and FINALLY she says that we need to work out a new schedule. Color me irritated please.
Me: You nervous Ty?
Ty: No, I just wish Kayley could stay with me all day and show me where stuff is.
Kayley hugs him: I will walk you to class but then I have to go upstairs. I'll just be upstairs in my class. You'll be okay then we'll ride the bus home together and Sarah will be here.
Me: Plus its been a long time since Sissy was in kindergarten. She doesn't know where stuff is anymore either.
Kayley: Nope, but I had your teacher. She's really nice. She'll show you around.
