Nanny Information For Busy Families

This morning our alarm went off at 5:45am so my husband and I could get up to do CrossFit at the gym for 6:15am.

By 7:30am we came home to a fresh smoothie, our bed made, and our pajamas neatly folded on our pillow.

The best part was, our daughter Marla was still sleeping.

As I finished my smoothie, Marla woke up, came out of her room and sleepily said “Mommy, cereal please.  Tiger one.” (Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes if you haven’t already guessed).

Then as a family, we ate breakfast together.

Curious how we were able to do this?

You’re not alone and over the past month I’ve fielded LOTS of questions from friends, colleagues and even complete strangers about the change they’ve seen in our lives.  So I’m going to finally spill the beans.  I’m going to give you the details on our “secret weapon” that instantly transformed the lives of everyone in our family.

A New Kind of Success

When the girls were about 2 weeks old, I went grocery shopping and bought a bag of chocolate chips.  I’m a new “stay at home mom” and I intended on making chocolate chip cookies.  I had this vision of the perfect Continue Reading →

Choosing a Daycare Isn’t Easy

Our daughter has been going to a wonderful home day care for the past nine months.  Betty (the day care provider) has years of experience with children, she’s caring, kind, patient and has a huge back yard with a slide, swing, sand pit and more.

Every day Marla comes home with paintings, pictures, sorting activities and crafts. There are days, she doesn’t want to get in the car to come home :)

It gives me a great sense of peace knowing she is being taken care of.
