She opted not to hire a nanny

The nanny of my nephews left two weeks ago.  My sister did not expect that she will leave earlier, they both agreed that she will only leave when the replacement arrive but she left earlier.  She informed her mother-in-law that the nanny she recommended left.  Her mother-in-law promised her that she will find a new nanny.  Two weeks has passed and the sister haven’t receive a call from her mother-in-law about the nanny.  They haven’t found a nanny yet, I guess.  It is difficult to find a nanny nowadays, that you can entrust your children.

Because the nephews does not have a nanny yet, I will be their temporary nanny again.  I am pretty sure my days will be tiring just like before.  The sister and I had a talked earlier about not getting a nanny.  In four years time, they already have seven nannies.  She is tired of getting a new one and train a new one.  Said that even if she is good to them, still they leave after few months.  Her youngest is two years old, and it is not that tiring to babysit him so I agreed to the sister’s decision.  I guess she needs a break in getting a new nanny.  I can still babysit her sons, I will just tell her if I need a break.  I hope I can!

Just being cautious

Few weeks ago, the nanny of the sister’s son just quit the job for personal reason. This is the reason the sister is now looking for a new nanny. It is not easy to get a new nanny today because we can’t tell if the person has good background. Trusting the kids to someone we do not know that much is risky that is why the sister is doing background screening to the woman who applied for the nanny job few days ago. I do hope that the nanny has good background because the sister is needs a nanny before classes’ starts. The sister is just being cautious that is why she is doing background screening. She wants to make sure that her kids are in good hands.

Memories will be there

In every beginning there is an end.  In every road there is dead end.  There is nothing that we can do but to accept it and start anew.  Though it hurts but this is part of our life that we have to make a wise decision.  No matter how painful it is, we have to accept that there are things that are not for us to have.  And that sometimes we have to say goodbye to someone.  We have to remember that goodbye is not really the end of every thing but a beginning of new life and new journey in life to take.

This is what my cousin is facing through right now.  She is still single and love kids a lot.  She likes to take good care of her nieces and nephew.  Last eight years ago, our cousin asked her a favor to take good care of her daughter because she will be working abroad.  She find it hard to say no when it comes to kids.  She’s been the mother, nanny and father of our niece for eight years.

The thing that she is afraid for is now going to happen.  Our cousin will be home soon and telling her to get her daughter.  She was shocked and do not know what to say but to give the girl to her mother.  After eight long years, for the first time they will be separated from each other.  Though she is prepared for this day to come, still she felt sad and lonely.  All will be left to her was memories of happiness and laughter they have shared for years.  She will miss her for sure but she is happy that she will be with her mother.
