she could have lied so that you wouldn't be mad at her for not showing up. did she come in today or go to another job she had?
Due to an unfortunate shopping cart toppling incident on monday (I was alone, no ds), I stayed home on tuesday, yesterday and had a chance to observe her all day for the first time. With everyone else I've left dh with, i've done this for days.
TBH, she was a lot better with him than I expected. He's sleeping much better for her (2 hr naps), which make life a lot easier for everyone involved. During his nap, she swept, mopped, dissapeared the dishes in the sink to the dishwasher without us realizing, and did all the bottles. All without being asked.
DS still tries to follow me out of the house, and doesn't crawl all the way to the door when she rings the bell. With old sitter, he would be fighting me to be picked up by her, and not even look up when I left. I'm going to give it another week or two and see how it goes.
