my first day as a nanny
On day one, I fell in love with my son all over again. A new baby is in our home, clearly upset and DLO keeps flashing me this face, like, "We got this, Mom. Don't worry." He talked and smiled and smiled and talked, as though encouraging nannychild to stop crying. I couldn't help but laugh out loud and told him with my eyes, "thank you." Even if you are an absolute terror the rest of the day, rest of the week...thank you for giving me the confidence and affirmation that this was the right choice for us. Now a week later, I'm still convinced becoming a stay-at-home nanny was a brilliant idea each time he opens his eyes from a nap and wriggles with delight that I am still here. As blog posts go...Boring? Maybe. Real-life? Yes.
