Hi all, I need some advice if you have a moment. I am a nanny, and when my nanny family leaves for a long vacation, sometimes they ask me to do household chores while they are gone (because they still pay me for the week). While they were gone to Disney this spring I washed baseboards, cleaned blinds, ect. Well they are leaving for a week-long vacation the first week of July, and this past Friday the dad made a comment about me staining the large playset he just built in the backyard. I didn't really know what to say because I wasn't sure if he was serious, but I said that I had never stained anything before so I didn't know how good it would look.
Ok, so now the advice part comes in. I want to be prepared for what to say if he was serious and he asks me again this week to stain the playset the following week while they are gone. I really wanted to have the first ultrasound before I told them I was pregnant, which I was planning to have while they are gone on vacation. So the question is - do I just take the opportunity to tell them when he asks me to stain again or should I kind of pretend like I'm going to stain and then just wait and tell them when they get back (if all goes well with the ultrasound)?
I'm really nervous about telling them because when they hired me in January, we weren't planning on trying so soon, nor did we think we would get pregnant so soon after trying, so they are under the impression babies aren't even on the brain for us. I really appreciate any comments you could provide! Thanks :)
