We went to karaoke tonight for just a couple of hours. It was exhilarating because I got to sing three times and the host was impressed with my vocal abilities. He raved. I was a little embarrassed, which never happens to me. I hope to go back often. My kids were awesome for Nanny. Sonny boy only pitched a small fit. We came home early for a variety of reasons and all was well.
I know I'm a stay at home mom and I'm supposed to be raising perfect kids with all my free time, but honestly I don't have any free time. I'm working so many hours that I barely have time to sleep. Having an extra person in the house to keep things manageable is the only way this can work. There's only one of me. Nanny helps me duplicate myself. I'm happy with this decision all around. I look forward to the coming weeks when my kids will know her and respect her fully.
