How Apropos

Did anyone watch Grey’s Anatomy last night? In the midst of my nanny search, was it really necessary to include a storyline about a nanny backing over a child with the SUV?

And to make matters worse, the child ONLY wants the nanny to comfort her in the hospital? And not her own mom? Who doesn’t even know HER CHILD’S BLOOD TYPE?! OR HER FAVORITE LULLABY? BECAUSE SHE CHOSE TO WORK OVER TAKING CARE OF HER CHILD?!

IS THIS A GLIMPSE INTO MY FUTURE?! Sweet Jebus ABC, could you make me feel any shittier?

I can see it now, Wito scraping his knee and calling out to Marta/Amalia/Heather/Emily/Amy (all fine candidates, might I add).

I better go figure out my child’s blood type.

    That nanny was a freak of nature, because no one seems to know their kids blood type. I hope to never need to know that because that would mean bad stuff was happening.

    Not a good time to see something like that, but with the charts your keeping, I don’t see you as the type to not know where Anders is at all times. That mom was not watching her kid.

    Best of luck with your search.

    I don’t watch Grey’s but sounds to me like they were just honing in on every mothers worst nightmare.

    But, leaving your child in the care of someone you don’t know is a very scary thing. Personally I couldn’t do it – but I know that the way I view it isn’t the standard way.

    I am interested to know why you chose to stay home. but if it is a personal thing, I understand. :)

    I’m trying to visit as many of the NaBloPoMo blogs as I can and I thought I’d say hi, I liked your blog.. :) Well I don’t have kids, I have cats which are like my kids, and as Angella said, I would have trouble leaving my cats with someone I didn’t know. They’re indoor only cats. I’ve lost too many cats to snakes and car accidents. I freaked out when the real estate person would not delay an inspection and I could not be there due to being delayed, I rang the real estate agents and *begged* them to please, put it off for an hour till I could be there and make sure the cats didn’t get out. They refused, telling me that the woman had many appointments and had to do things in a certain order. I was sure the cats would not be inside when I got home, but they were. Things have a habit of turning out ok in the end, for the most part.. :) It’ll be ok. But you might want to read a few Gavin De Becker books and ask the right questions before you hire someone.. :)
