[ - ] Nanny of two months told us at the beginning of August that she was taking this week off. She said she wanted to go see her family and understood if we'd need to replace her as a result, but that she really wanted to stay working for us. This put us in a major jam as DH and I both had to work this week and DCs are too young to go to camp. I put an ad on care.com and found someone who's been really great, much better than our nanny. Would it be ok to call current nanny tomorrow and let her know that we've decided to move on? I assume she's planning to come to work Monday morning 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] So my bridesmaids are made up of some friends and some cousins. One friend in particular is struggling financially, so when I asked her to be a bridesmaid I said "oh don't worry about the dress, I'm covering it." She may or may not think I'm buying dresses for all the bridesmaids. I'm really just buying hers since I know she's struggling financially whereas the rest of my bridesmaids are pretty wealthy. It's customary for the bridesmaids to buy their own dresses anyway usually. But anyway, how do I prevent her from knowing that she was the only one I covered for the dress? I can't exactly say "please don't mention to the other bridesmaids that I paid for the dress" since that sort of defeats the purpose of my paying for her dress in the first place. I'm worried she's going to say something at the bridal party luncheon like "Thanks so much for buying our dresses." and then the other bridesmaids will be like "say what?" lol. Any tips on how to prevent this? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

op: seems kind of mean to be like "well obviously you're the poor one in the group who has student loans to pay back." I mean no matter how I say it it makes her seem singled out for not having more money. I'd rather leave it ambiguous as to whether or not I paid for everyone so she doesn't feel singled out. But then the question is how do I prevent her from saying anything about the dress in front of others. I guess maybe I can't really do much about that... [ Reply | More ]

NP: You sound extremely angry over something really not a big deal. You don't need to respond. Just surf over. Seriously, this reaction is not normal. It struck a cord in you it seems and you are unable to handle in a calm mature manner. Maybe you want to seek some help for your anger. Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

It's my dh not me - but doing all the stuff you pay other people to do (clean, laundry, shopping/cooking) - and all the other little but time cosuming things like errands that free up our nights and weekends so we actually have leisure time to enjoy each other [ Reply | More ]

I ran around the park, did laundry, volunteered at the children's school, made some meals. Then one year I spent all my free time studying for the licensing exam in addition to all those tasks. After that I got a part-time job, but I still come home to do the laundry, volunteer at school, get up extra early to run around the park, take kids to extracurriculars and slow cook meals. I earned just enough to start the divorce process and qualify for a mortgage to buyout my tax cheating, hoarding and compulsive spending husband. [ Reply | More ]

Home by 9, do stuff around the house. Go to the grocery store, run other errands. Walk the dog. Prep dinner and afternoon snacks to take in my car, leave to pick up younger kid by 2:20. Pick up younger kid, drive and pick up older kid at 3:30. Sit in the parking lot waiting for him, making younger kid do homework in the car. Drive home or to activities. If home, home by 4:15. Feed older kid a snack and let the kids veg for a little bit. Older kid does homework while I finish dinner. Take kids for a bike ride (ods needs more exercise so we are fitting it in) then have dinner, read to the kids, do the bedtime thing. This would be fine but I get sucked in to to volunteering stuff at school so there isn't much downtime during the day. I have tried to cut way back this year, hoping I can stay out of it.
