To Have or Have Not..........A Nanny
Since I am so not a morning person, I feel like I'm walking around in a bit of a fog, trying to adjust to setting my alarm to get Seth off to school. It reminds me of the fulltime working professional I used to be, in what now feels like another life. It was a pre-motherhood chapter that doesn't even seem like it was me. There was a time, yes, when I awoke before daybreak and commuted in NYC, didn't complain....except about my bosses. So, why am I fighting the alarm now?
Guess I like feeling entitled to sleep in a bit if I'm able. Is that so awful? I know plenty of moms heed the crying call of a baby at all hours.....but now that my son is four, I've been there, done that....and like my morning chill time.
So.....what do we do now? Try to find a new nanny who doesn't live in? (I'm not overly inclined to adjust to a new live-in) And, if so, for what hours? Can I bite the alarm bullet and reluctantly rise to the occasion myself in the AM? But, then what happens after school?
