This week we had a nanny start watching our children, instead of having to take them to KinderCare every day.
A nanny, you say?
Well, okay, so she's the fiancee of Wayne's nephew, so it's not like we took out a listing and interviewed a whole slew of college students. But she knows the kids, they know her, she's very responsible and is going to school to be a pre-school teacher, what more could we ask for??
And I have to say how WONDERFUL it is to not have to get four people ready to leave the house every day. This morning Marissa slept in extra late. We woke her up right before we left just to say good-bye, and we left. No battles over putting clothes on, no crying and not wanting to get buckled in to the carseat.
We are going to be extra spoiled by this summer and are going to have a difficult time re-adjusting to dropping kids off this coming fall. And it will be exasperated by the fact that we'll have to drop two kids off at two different places -- Marissa at KinderCare and Lindsey at Minneapolis Kids, the before and after school program at her kindergarten. I just won't think about that right now.
