A day in the life of a nanny.

sleep in
9:00 eat breakfast
9:30 take walk
10:15 various random things
12:00 eat lunch
1:00 Moms leave and official duty begins
1:15 sew dress while Jenna plays nicely, Chiara naps, Karissa and Dawson rest
2:45 children all wake up and various books are read, toys are played with, etc
4:00 listen to oddessey
4:15 get self ready
4:30 get children ready
5:00get children in van
5:05 drive out lane and p.u. Dawson who went out to check the mail
5:06 go to fresh start
5:20 talk to the cooks and help w/last minute prep
5:25 eat a bangin good dinner (that I didn’t half to make) with the parents
6:05 rush to grocery store w/sister
6:25 load children in van
6:40 arrive safe and sound at our little house in the woods
6:45 listen to coyote’s howl as I unload children and grocery’s from van
6:50 children play various things whilst I update

So thats pretty much my life in a nutshell for the next three days.  And I think I’ll be quite used to the title mom till all is said and done.  The two 1 1/2 year olds don’t seem to realize that the term “mom”  is only for your mom.  Not every adult women who takes care of you occasionally.  The rest of the evening will be filled w/various random childrens activites and conversations and then the parents will arrive around 9:30.  And instead of staying up till midnight recieving my condensed seminar from Chris and Dave, I think I’ll head to bed.  To many late nights and then I sleep in and don’t get anything accomplished before official nanny duty begins.   

Well Jenna’s begging for attention, so I best run along.  Later.

    Sounds like you are having a grand time.  Like the part about not cooking – could use one of those breaks myself
