Well kittens, first let me apologize for my late posting today. I’ve just been so slammed at work. You know you always rank higher on my priority list but alas, work pays me, and well, you don’t, so even when I’m slow, remember you’re always first in my heart…..
And with that, today’s posting will be short. For those of you on the edge of your seat, dying for a nanny update, here’s hoping that third time’s a charm chez moi.
We interviewed a woman last Thursday who captured my heart from the minute she walked in my door but I didn’t even want to speak of it until everything was finalized, for fear of jinxing. I have become even more superstitious since having a baby – something to discuss later – but like baby sleeping habits, baby’s health – I just didn’t want to really talk about this nanny until it became real. Just like we don’t speak of baby’s sleeping habits. Ever.
And so here it is – all final. She starts a week from tomorrow and I couldn’t be more ecstatic. I have no doubts about her, I have no desires to read other emails from other prospective nanny’s and no desperate need for my mother to come over and give me her read of the new nanny.
In other words, I ignored my gut the last time because I was distracted with a sick kid and desperate to just get it all over with. It’s probably true that what doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger, and this one wasn’t fun – but new nanny seems fabulous and all is well in the land.
More tomorrow, I promise.
