I need to talk to someone with a nanny/housekeeper please. I am really frustrated.
Things are changing in our household. My daughter has more activities that my husband takes her to and less time at home in the mornings. DD is only home one morning a week now and four afternoons. It is hot here and so our nanny is not taking her to the park much. This means too much time trapped in the house in the afternoons.
I feel like my house is really clean but my child needs more activities in the afternoon. We have play doh and coloring but what other activities can our nanny and DD do together and how do I encourage this? I don't have time to plan their day and offer activities. Our nanny is Spanish speaking and my DD understands Spanish but does not speak it back. DD will respond to commands and behave as requested.
I love our nanny and with another baby on the way, I have no plans to change her schedule. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Maybe I need a firm kick in the pants?
