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 Sittercity.com, 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.”
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.
