advice on taking another job?

Hello all!

So I wanted some advice. I've been a nanny/babysitter on and off for different families for about 3 years. I am currently trying to find a more permanent job in my field of communications. While I am searching for a job, I have no current job and was interested in getting a nanny job to fill the time and get some money.


HELP! I nanny for two girls one 5.5 and the other 2.5. The younger one is simply driving me mad! I KNOW I KNOW she's just being 2 but i don't know what to do with the attitude and temper tantrums and OVERALL disrespect I'm getting from her. Her mom is always on board with her being respectful and not being rude however the dad allows it, ONLY getting fed up with the girls when he is busy on a business phone call or trying to work from home which is OFTEN. so...I believe the girls are getting mixed messages from the parents and from me.

Unpaid and threatened

I need advice! I was contacted by a couple who were looking for an overnight sitter from last Wednesday to Saturday. I met with the two Dads, met the little girl and even went to her therapy appointment because she has ADD and Reactive Attention Disorder. I gave the fathers my rate, $260 a day and we had a verbal agreement that they would wire me money, leave petty cash, and refill her medication.


So, I've been working with this amazing family for about 8 months now. They have two children, two boys who I absolutely have great affection for. The MB is a stay at home mom, so we see each other every day and spend a lot of time together. Anyway, the oldest boy who is 3y/o has separation anxiety which is something we are still working on. But the other child who is just 16 months began showing signs of separation anxiety as well. I don't know if it's a phase he is going to go through or if he has picked up the behavior from his older sibling.

Household notebook/ sub plans

Hi, does anyone know of a good notebook that has a place to list important household numbers ( think electrician, phone, cable) and a place to leave notes ( like carpet was last cleaned 12/12/12). And a spot for info like the main water shut off switch is in the basement next to ...

Also a spot to list what you do each day of the week with the kids?

I don't want to reinvent the wheel if there is a good one out there already.

Thanks. Annie
