I worked: Monday-Friday 6.5 hrs x day (7am-10:30am and 4:30pm-7:30pm) Saturday and Sunday 12 hrs x day (7am-7pm) In the mornings I was with the 6 month old baby (eating, playing, putting to sleep, etc) and helping with light housework when the baby is napping (vacuuming, keeping the kitchen clean, washing the family's clothes, taking out the garbage, among other things). I helped since he was a new born. In the afternoons I helped with the older kids (feeding dinner, cleaning the kitchen, getting them ready for bed and putting them to bed). If the parents were with them I went back to help with the 6 month old baby. On the weekends I was in charge of waking up the two big kids, getting them ready, preparing breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner (only for the kids) and being with them while they eat, as well as helping with light housework in between times, playing with them or doing activities, bathing them, getting them ready at night and going to sleep. In case the parents go out with the big ones I am with the baby. And of course, playing and doing fun activities with them, going for walks, to the park, reading, etc. Kids ages when I left, Girl 4, Boy 2, Boy 6 months
Reasons for Leaving
Burnout, I felt like my experience and quality of work wasn't valued. Excessive control and demands from mom. But I told the family I left because of personal situations, I was moving with my boyfriend cause he was moving out of state or possibly international for a job opportunity. I said this because I tried talking to them about finding a new agreement among salary and hours but it wasn't very easy to talk to them about that, they said it was fair and more than enough. I worked 50 hours, 1 day off, for $700 a week. They mentioned it was because of the live in situation (rent/food) but asking other nannies they told me that is not how live ins should be paid.
We ended up in good terms, they're very nice people I just think a bit hard to work with. They know I was going to look for different live out full job opportunities and they are ok in being my reference, just if you could be possible just not to mention I'm looking for a live in job, I would think they could get upset and I would be worried as one of my current families they wouldn't agree in being my reference again. Because I really did a great job with them, it was just the situation that couldn't continue for longer :( I got really attached to the kids and them to me, it was really hard but finally I was emotionally/mentally exhausted and had to leave before it was harder on me :/
