The new Year!

I can't believe we are already 5 days into the new year. The last two weeks have been real busy for me. I worked on Christmas Eve day, Christmas day, New Years Eve day and New Years day, and some days in between. I was watching a 6 month old baby girl from 3 to 10pm. I got used to it after a while but it's just too hard watching a child in a hotel room. She was a cuttie and I got attached. They left the island already and they asked me if I wanted to move to Chicago for 2 months to help them out, but I told them I liked my job here. I also took care of a littl girl I had last year and the family requested me.

Here are two pictures of
the kids I nannied for.

Well, now I'm back to my normal schedule and I am enjoying my evenings off doing whatever.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Is it hard to be away from your family over the holidays? Does being in Maui make up for it?

Cute kids. Do you enjoy being a nanny? Do the families treat you like a professional (you do after all have a master degree) or like hired help?

It was very hard being away from family and friends. This was my second year not with my family for the holidays.
Maui doesn't make up for everything. It doesn't feel like Christmas when it's all nice and sunny outside.

I enjoy being a nanny very much. I get to meet many different people from around the country and some from other countries. I've had some nice families and kids so far. Can't complain. I got good tips :)
Most don't know what my job is so they just treat me like someone who is there to take care of their kids.
