Monday 11 a.m.I've been trying to find a nanny for the last two weeks. Its been such a struggle. I mean, am sure there are so many people out there looking for a job. Why then is it so difficult to find one?
Anyway, after numerous phone calls, failed meetings and following many leads, I finally hired a nanny. She arrived on Monday at 11 a.m.
I've been really praying about this issue. When you hire someone you dont know and have never met to come live in your house and take care of your baby, it is a difficult thing. But, I needed the help. My baby is almost nine months now and a handful. I was getting really overwhelmed trying to put in some work, take care of baby and complete all house chores.
Am really hoping that things will get better as we get to know each other. One thing that made me really happy was that Lowell did not have trouble with her even for a minute. Over the past few weeks, he has been having serious issues with separation anxiety. He has been so clingy that I could not go to the bathroom without him wailing like he is in pain. However, he's been super warm with the nanny and I hope they get along well.
All in all, am still praying that things work out and everything falls into place accordingly.
