Those of you who know me, know how much I love being a nanny. I love to love and I absolutely adore children. I am overjoyed that I found a nanny job that works out so well for me. When I got diagnosed with FAP, I had to leave my previous nanny job. I was unable to keep up with the time (sometimes over 50 hours a week) and energy they needed from me (3 kids under 4, can you imagine?!). I am so excited to be returning to the profession I love, but with much better terms.
I was a bit nervous about finding a job. Between the FAP and the j-pouch I have a few "issues" that I thought may make it difficult to find a job. Of course, I have that impending second trip to Mayo. And I can't forget about my bathroom habits. I couldn't imagine a job where I was only allowed to go to the bathroom on a lunch break or something. I was also concerned with my energy levels, I don't think I could handle a job that required me to be on my feet for 9 hours straight. But being a nanny for an infant? Perfect! And a damn cute one too.
I feel very blessed that Charlie's family wants me to be his nanny. They know all about me, and are very understanding. My first day of work is Feb 2nd, and I can't wait. I have never been this excited to start a new job!
And another positive? Gracie is very relieved that she is no longer my only model.
