timing

So blogging this week turned out to be a lot more difficult than I had expected. I enjoyed reading so much during my little charge’s nap times that I would put writing off every time. And after 8 1/2 hours of nannying, I would come home wanting to relax and spend time with the girls and my dogs instead of sitting on the computer. Needless to say I took pictures with every intention of blogging day by day, so I have some catching up to do!

The majority of my week was spent taking care of a 9 month old little boy. It’s been a while since I’ve spent so much time occupied with bottles and diapers and naps and little baby giggles and screams. I fell into the routine of it pretty quickly again though. I found it very exhausting! Parents don’t focus 100% of their time on their kid, but they definitely want their nannies to do just that in most situations. I’m a major multi-tasker, so sitting with Cedric (yes, his name is Cedric) and doing only one thing at a time was a special challenge for me this week. I had to re-evaluate whether nannying that age was the right thing for me, and I found myself thinking a more interactive age might be more fun for me, but I was also aware of the fact that this family I had agreed to work for would still be in need of a nanny regardless of whether I need more stimulation during the day or not! God had already worked that out for me though, as I would soon find out. The parents were hoping to get Cedric into a Montessori School here in Denver, and low and behold (to their horror since they had just hired me) a spot opened up in the school starting October 4th. Yes, that means that my new job is about to be my old job, but I felt that the timing was perfect for them and for me because God understood that I might need something a little different. It actually struck me as a little funny because of that. It seemed to me that God was just looking out for me in a special way, and that made me smile.

So I’m on the job hunting trail again. I don’t think it should be too difficult because there are a million nanny jobs in this city, but I am going to be a little more focused about my search this time and hopefully find a better fit for my very active brain. :P

Cedric and I have enjoyed this park during my work day lately…

It’s such a pretty place, and I love being by the water. Cedric loves it too. I try to go every day because sitting in the park is so lovely.

That’s all for now because I really want to take Corin to the dog park for a bit. :)
