Last month, I decided to discontinue my time as a full-time nanny to focus all of my energy and effort on writing. It's been going swell. Writing opportunities are aplenty, and I've been very blessed in that regard. However, it feels as though there is a hole. Something is missing; there's a space in my heart that has since been empty.
Ironically, as soon as I decided to discontinue my full-time nanny job, an opportunity arose with a great agency here in Los Angeles. I've yet to really decide if I want to dabble in the nanny life [not nearly as much as I was], until last Saturday. I accepted a one-time childcare gig for a family coming to LA for the day from northern California.
While the parents had plans to be on a game show, the little man [six months old] didn't quite meet the age requirement of 18+, so they needed someone to care for him. This was the first time having a baby dropped off at my home; I was nervous!
It was a wonderful experience, and I got to spend the day with the little guy [above], which reminded me of how much I love caring for children. It's the very thing that filled that empty space right up. With that, I decided to write up a nanny/sitter flyer [below] to post around my community [tomorrow].
