The Interview Tonight

January 7, 2013

Tonight we interview a new sitter. Ours is leaving to head home next week.


Honestly, it’s hard to do this. She’s been with us 7 months, and actually her first interview was the day my water broke with the twins. She’s stayed with us since, been such a rock in these months of appointments and changes. Bella adores her. I trust her completely, and her calm demeanor is always such a welcome spot in our crazy lives.

But we need someone else. She comes 3 mornings a week right now, sometimes more. Both for working and appointments I have to have someone. And with Sam leaving (right after her) it’s even more important to find someone so I can get a break and get things done.

Using, we found someone we really liked initially. There were the usual odd applications like a name and number only, a letter on how one candidate has been a full time nanny since she was 13 to her church, someone else who stated they charted $12 as “mandated by the state.”

What state?

But this sitter seems great, and I’m hoping Bella really likes her. I hope I like her. And I hope she likes us.

I also hope she doesn’t read my blog. Because that’s just uncomfortable. And awkward.

And then I can’t write about it if it goes all wrong.

I mean. No.

    It is SOOO hard to find someone you can trust to care for your kids. It is the #1 most stressful thing to do for me personally. Good luck & I hope your potential new sitter exceeds your expectations.

    Oh my gosh, how stressful! Especially because Sam is leaving so close to the same time. When my oldest was One, we moved from San Antonio and the sitter he’d had for 6 months. It was really, really hard.
