This is my dilemma...my neighbor came over tonight to ask me if I could be her nanny for two of her kids. I'm 38 weeks pregnant now with my fourth child and she needs me in 3 weeks.
My kids not in school are ages 4, 2 and newborn. Her kids are 2 and 3 months. So it would be like having toddler twins and newborn twins! I would only have the 2 year old half time, one week on, one week off. I would have them for about 6 hrs a day, five days a week and she is offering me 200 every two weeks.
I don't know if I can keep my sanity doing this! I am an AP mama all the way and although she is not at all, I can't treat her kids differently than I treat mine. Her baby is formula fed and she always props his bottle, but I couldn't do that. I would want to hold him. My baby is going to be breastfeeding every hour at first and I'm worried about being able to take care of so many little people.
Bottom line is that we really do need extra income, dh is working min wage right now and we are really struggling. What would you do??
