Thank you to all ... Looking forward

I think I would just about lose my mind without this site and though I rarely respond, I read every entry.

We only put our stresses/worries/issues/complaints here .. but there are also so many great things that happen (maybe not every day!!) which is why we do this job.

So I made this decision last year to leave ... I wrote a letter of resignation ... sat the mom down and talked about my issues (well, most of them ...) and they agreed to ALL of them.

Interview advice + pay

Hi everyone, i'm still looking for a job and have an interview tomorrow and one on monday. I need some advice. I have anxiety and sometimes during interviews i get choked up and probably make myself look bad. Like if they give me a scenero I choke up and say something dumb, but I would really do something different. I have a passion for kids, but my anxiety and talking to adults sometimes doesnt go well.

Anxiety about quitting job with PSYCHO mom

Hey guys! I'm sorry for the length of this, I just felt that it was necessary to let you all know everything that has been going on. I'm hoping to get some good advice on here becasue I am truly stuck right now..
So I'll go ahead and give you all some background info on this new family..

We never go outside!

Hey so I work for a very nice family taking care of a 16 month old. I watch her for 40 hours per week. I started working for them this winter when the baby 12 months old. Since it was winter when I started and the baby wasnt walking and napping twice a day still, it seemed to make sense to stay inside. I'd offer to take her to baby playgroup or mention that she would probably start walking at the same time the weather warmed up and so on. When I started checking out books from the library, the librarian told me of a few playtime's and storytimes for kids her age.

Hi :)
So a little back ground if you may not know my story:
I live in CA and am a full time nanny (m-f) to 2 littles - A (3 ½, F) and C (will be 2 on Friday, M). 2-3 days a week I also watch their cousins - E (4, M) and H (23m, M). I have been with them for the last 22 months.

Need Advice about Current Situation

I just found out my current family is moving out of the country so I obviously started looking for new jobs. I interviewed with a new family and ended up being offered the position that starts next week. I let my current family know right away (which was a week ago), however, they spent all of last week trying to convince me to stay. Finally over the weekend I explained that unfortunately I just can't stay with them until they move (which is in the middle of summer) and they asked that I stay through the end of next week knowing my new job starts next week.

My husband is being transferred, when do I give notice?

Hi everyone,

I started with a new family in February after being with my previous Nanny Family for 3.5 years. I'm with one infant girl who is 6 months old. My husband just found out on Friday that he is being transferred for his job back to his home state. We eventually wanted to make this move and overall it's a great move for him and for us, but we didn't know it would happen this soon. He will be transferred in 2 weeks.

Banking hours & misc

I've been a Nanny 4yrs now. My current NF is the only family that wants to "bank hours"=let me explain: the Mom said I had Tuesday, April 4 off & instead of NOT paying me, she paid me, thereby "banking" the 8hrs & then when she wants me to work & provide childcare on the weekends &/or some other day; she doesn't have to pay me since she already included pay for a day I didn't actually work.
