Nanny update

Thank you all for the kind and encouraging emails and comments.

Here's a quick update of what's happened in the last week and half.

We made an offer to a lady we liked on Sunday evening. We made the offer knowing that she would continue to look for a job in her field which is not in child care. But we liked her and figured we could just "kick the can down the road". We did ask that she give us at least a month's notice before she planned on leaving. We understand this wasn't entirely workable but we figured it was worth it to ask.
She had some hesitations with that so that also made us hesitant. I have been  a little stressed about it and going through the process all over again in a few months  within a 2-week period (since that's the standard for giving notices) once she got a job was just not appealing.

On Tuesday, we interviewed with another candidate who is a full-time nanny. We really liked her especially since she had a lot of the qualities we were looking for.

On Wednesday, we received an email from our current nanny. Due to some personal commitments with her family, they are no longer moving anytime soon.

We were VERY elated and are excited to say that she will be staying with us at least for the near future.

JOE is especially THRILLED. Not that she really knew anything about what was going on.

I took this picture this morning. Gotta love my little girl's poses when she sleeps. 

Have a fabulous Thursday. We're just a day away from the weekend!


  1. Amen to the end of your nanny search!! We have the same breathable crib bumper! just different colors ;)

    1. Thank you! We are really happy. We truly feel that "all things worked together for good" here.

      I love the bumper. I am never worried about baby girl sleeping too close to it. :-)

  2. Woohooo!!! God is glad it worked out in the end!!

  3. Ohhhhhhh, her hair. That is everything.
