[ - ] How important is being near (in the neighborhood of) your dc's school for ongoing? Is it ridiculous (for instance) to live in the UES if the school is on the UWS? Will we want to move to UWS eventually to be closer? Make playdates easier? events at school? etc. or does it not matter -- we'd prefer to stay....TIA 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It doesn't matter. We live in West Harlem & dc's school is on the UES. Many people do not live right around school. [ Reply | More ]

Dh does drop-off, subway & bus. Many dc take either the public bus or the school's private bus. Dc come from four of the five boroughs. [ Reply | More ]

At 5, not an issue at all. At 3, if gettting rid of naps, then most parents would be happy to have something to occupy the time. [ Reply | More ]

actually a close call. full-time nannies have paid vacation and paid holidays. Part-time nannies? What if she works Tue-Wed next week? Do you pay her for Turkey Day anyway? [ Reply | More ]

I wouldn't. 2 days a week is not a full time position with benefits like sick days and paid days off. I would give her the option of making up the hours and getting paid for them or taking it as an unpaid day. [ Reply | More ]

of course. its a nice gesture. just like your employers do. she counts on her usual salary. you do not need her for the day, or have decided to let her spend TG with her loved ones, but she still needs to pay the rent. [ Reply | More ]

My rule is that if the sitter works on an hourly rate, she does not get paid for non-worked hours. Hourly rates tend to be a bit more than flat salary. [ Reply | More ]

I think a 2 day a week nanny, with regular days worked, is different than someone who is a babysitter that may average 15 hours a week, but the hours each week vary [ Reply | More ]

I don't pay my sitter this way -- she gets paid when she works and not when she doesn't. she comes about 8-12 hrs a week. That said, she goes on vacation quite a bit and there's not a lot of regard for my schedule, so it goes both ways. I think the system works for both of us. [ Reply | More ]

We have a sitter 2 days/week and pay her for her scheduled days, whether we need her or not. If a holiday falls on her scheduled day, she doesn't have to work but will get paid. [ Reply | More ]

This is normal. Sometimes little babies just don't poop much. They can go several days without pooping -- my memory says as long as ten days. If he goes a couple more days and seems fussy, call your ped, but I doubt there is anything wrong. [ Reply | More ]
