Three peas in a pod

Three peas in a pod

I was chatting with a pregnant friend today (what, I have those now? apparently I do) and she asked about the nanny share. I’ll be honest, I think I’ve got the perfect set up, but as you know from previous posts we had a rocky start at finding the right fit. It took four families to find one that was just right. One didn’t go beyond the first meeting, one decided to go with their own nanny, one wasn’t the right fit age and location wise even though we really liked each other (and still meet up when we can), and obviously the last family is such a great arrangement we hope it sticks until school starts.

So what do you need to think about and look for when you’re looking for a share? (more…)


I need to sign up when? March 9, 2011

What's all this white stuff then?

I’m not looking for different childcare – Nanny M is magnificent, but NPN posted about childcare centers today and I read the blog. Can I just ask, seriously why in the hell would a childcare center have a 1 year wait list to get an infant into care? You would literally (and yes, I do mean literally) have to sign up with one of these places as soon as you found out you were pregnant.
