Sorry, this is long.
I work full-time from home, but need to go into the office 1-4 times each month, on average. I recently hired a nanny/mother's helper to come to to our house to watch Colin while I work since there is no way for me to have meetings with a 1.5 year old in the background.
She is 19 (graduated from HS in 2009), takes college classes online, has worked in preschools and daycares before. She has her fingerprint clearance card, CPR/First Aid certs and quite a bit of experience caring for toddlers.
She is GREAT with Colin. She always has him engaged in an activity, sings, reads, does crafts, etc. She is fabulous with him and he really likes her. I'm usually home when she is here (upstairs in the office) and left her home alone with Colin for the first whole day last week. Everything went perfectly.
So- here's my question. I just found her Facebook profile and these are some of her most recent status updates. (Starting with the most current and working backwards)
-Animal crakers in my soup monkeys and rabbits loop the loop. I love animal crakers so much. Is trying vary hard to not have any more freak outs this week. Tomorow better be a better day
-Ok so good day I am sooo tired timwe for bed I bettere not wake at 4am
-Day one with out a freak out let's make it 2 and go from there.
-Is taking two steps forword one step back this is bull.
-ok realy this can stop now i am ok and has a good life
There are also random updates within those (those updates are from the past few weeks but it looks like she mentions a 'freak out' every few days or so).
What do you think? I don't want to state my opinion yet because I want to hear from you if this is something that would be a red-flag, or if you think it's okay. I already have a gut reaction, but again, I don't want to share it yet because I don't want to sway what you say. :) Thanks, ladies!
