Seeing old kids?

At the end of January, I put my two weeks in at a job I'd been working for 3.5 years. Long story short, the mom was crazy and continually treating me worse and worse. When I told her I was leaving, she told me I wasn't allowed to tell the kids until my last day. Two days after I gave my notice, she informed me (after hours) she wouldn't be paying me for my two weeks. I told her I would not be coming back. She told me she wanted to set up a time for me to say goodbye to the four kids, but when I tried, she would change her mind. So I never said goodbye.

What to do in down time while child naps

So do you read? Clean, watch tv? I am starting a new nanny job this week and my old job let me watch tv. I can't sit and do nothing. But I also don't want to be the maid and have to clean.. It's for a baby so there will be lots of down time since his is only a few months old and will sleep most of the time.. If they say no to tv, What is acceptable? Thanks!

Messy family

I get not everyone is gonna be super clean.. I was hired to do laundry (the whole families) dishes and clean up after children.
My question is when the family is sooo messy they rarely ever clean (there is a maid thank god) but then they don't pick up or wash a single dish and I come in Monday to weekend dishes.. is this normal? Should I ask them if they could try and keep up w their weekend dishes.. as I don't feel that should be my responsibility ... even weeknight dinner dishes are left for me in the am...

Too many toys?

Hi everyone! I've been a nanny to a wonderful family with two boys, 9mo. and 4y/o for 4 months now, and they are the greatest. Ever since I started I noticed the 4y/o is easy to anger, gets overwhelmed quickly, and is always looking for space every now and then. I know that space is normal, but lately, and a few weeks ago he's been acting out a lot (having A TON of tantrums, screaming, and stomping off). The mom and I were thinking it might be an attention problem or still adjusting to the baby being here and adjusting to the balance of attention between the both of them.

Vomit

The family I nanny for all managed to get sick over the weekend. :/ when I came in Monday I found a puke bucket near the bathtub in the kids bathroom... I was told to leave that they would take care if it... today (Tuesday) I've come in and see the vomit bucket in their kitchen sink with just a small amount of soap and water in it still w vomit all down the side- sorry gross I know- was this left for me to clean?! So I have to do dishes still ... I have no gloves or mask and not only is the bucket a problem, the children's toilet still has puke all over the seat.
