I feel horrible, but I can no longer take having to be a live in! I'm a nanny to fraternal twins that just turned 3. I started about three weeks ago and I've just been not having the best time. I think mainly with the whole live in part. I work Monday-Friday and occasionally work Saturday morning. Family is super nice...but I miss home a lot. I'm 24 years old and I've never been so stressed out before. The kids refuse to sleep in their own bed, so they want to always sleep with me, basically I get no sleep. I have to be up at 6 in the morning, make the kids their requested food (homemade pancakes, or eggs, yogurt with fruit). Which I don't mind, but I feel rushed because they have scehldule activities that I need to get them by. They don't listen to me at all and they're always having tantrums if I say no to them. The boy in particular will scream bloody murder if he doesn't get his way and it's stressful and cave in. I'm always running around to different places with the kids using my own car (which is okay) but they never give me gas money. So it's about $80 a week I put in because I have to take the kids to all these activities. I'm suppose to be getting breaks...but the breaks never seem long enough as I work more than 12 hour shifts. I'm so stressed out that I'm sick (I can't eat much when I'm there, constantly feel like I want to vomit). The mother signed me up to do volunteer work at a farm(which she never told me about). She literally told me the day before it happened that the kids are the ones volunteering which would only be once a week. I don't mind helping as it's always been my dream...but this one is crazy. I have to take care of an additional 8 kids (watch and make them snacks). If I'm not watching the kids I'm helping out on the farm. Their originally nanny is moving back to her homeland in two days, and won't be back until November or January. I like the family, but I don't think I can handle this anymore. They want me to stay long term and I feel bad...but I just feel overwhelmed. I hate disappointing everyone... Should I quit once the originally nanny returns? I would be giving 2 weeks notice and all that.
