Well almost a month into my summer vacation I find out the family I nanny for is going through a rough time and will no longer need my services 🙁 I’ve been watching them for 7 years and we had a great thing goin, I was paid amazingly and loved how laid back the family was and it was just the best job ever. I always knew it was getting close to them not needing me anymore because the girls were getting older but I was supposed to work this summer, though not as much, just two days a week, which for me ment $110. Which I was happy with, I don’t need that much money and I loved my job. Well last night the mom left the dad and her and kids moved in with her parents so her parents are going to watch the girls. I’m so sad for them, but I saw it coming, they’ve never had a great marriage but it still sucks and I’m also sad for me because I lost my awesome job. So I was stressing all day because even though I wasn’t getting paid a lot, it was enough for the summer time and I know this is bad but I’m picky about where I work. Well my mom was out to lunch with a friend and I guess she needs a nanny for her 18 mo old son, she needs me four days a week for 5 to 6 hours and I will get $110 a week. I got really lucky and am super grateful for it but I’m going to have to work double the hours for the same amount of money with a kid who needs a lot more work than the girls needed.
Now that I am done venting I am going to look at this in a positive light. I lost my great job but was able to quickly find a good job that I will probably enjoy because it will also be laid back. Maybe this can turn into a long term nanny/babysitting job 🙂 And it will give me more to do during the day because I will admit that I have been bored latly. I can watch the little boy at her house or my house so I can still spend time with my mom and grandma and the mom said I can take him places if want to go out with a friend or something. It will be just like my old but with less money but that is OK and I am happy for it 🙂
