First week with my new little man. Isn’t he a prince?! I am falling in love again.
yourenotalonewhenyourwithme asked: im 14 and from britain. when im older (around 19 years old) i want to be a nanny. i think it will be a great experience for me. im a child development gcse student and when i am 16 i will start my level 3 CACHE. i wanted to know what its like to be a nanny and what qualifications you would need? thank you xx
The qualifications needed for the job are dependent on what the family wants. I have a bachelors degree in psychology with a concentration in child development and every family I’ve worked for has told me they appreciate my education. The first family I worked for told me they wouldn’t hire someone who did not have a college degree. Some other things you may need are infant CPR certification, a clean background check, and a valid drivers license. I think having qualities like patience and compassion also come in handy. You should read some parenting books and become familiar with the developmental milestones.
Nannying is the most fulfilling and rewarding job I’ve ever had. I get to assist in raising children and influence who they become later in life. 4 years ago I began nannying for a 2-year-old boy and when I see him now I’m over joyed by the person he is becoming. He still likes a lot of thing that I got him interested in. His little brother took his first steps while in my care. I prefer younger children because I like being a part of those monumental life events. It’s an exciting job, but it’s not for anyone with a weak stomach. Any nanny can tell you about being peed, pooped, or puked on, and how those gross things are just something you have to get used to because they’re unavoidable. I have a lot of nanny friends, which I highly recommend because no outsider really understands our job. It’s emotional work and can be very draining, but I think it’s worth it.
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HOW MUCH OF A MINDFUCK THAT WOULD BE TO A BABY THO

Today is my first day of my new job. I had to leave the house at 7am because it’s snowing really hard. My boss seemed impressed when I rolled up on my bike almost 10 minutes early. I think he expected me to be late because of the bad weather but I just proved to DB that I am super reliable. The baby is STILL asleep so I’m just drinking some coffee and watching the snow fall.
