Myron and I visited a close friend yesterday to see her and her 3 month old twin boys. They are gorgeous, robust babies with healthy lungs..LOL!!! My husband did quite an admirable job putting one of the twins to sleep, until he woke up and had to go back to his mom to be consoled. Turns out he needed a diaper change. 🙂
My friend was mentioning that she and her husband had the twins on a schedule of eating and sleeping in order to make their lives a bit more manageable, at least as much as possible with newborn twins and a toddler who is 2.5 years old. My friend has a pretty high powered job and plans to go back to work in April of this year. She plans to use the nanny that she currently has for her toddler girl to watch the boys when her toddler goes to more structured day care in the summer time. She is strong proponent of having an in-home nanny for at least the first few years of a child’s as opposed to day care. Of course she can also afford it.
What are your thoughts about nannies? Would your opinion make a difference if I told you that my friend also has her elderly father living with her who requires constant care? If you could afford a nanny vs day care would you??
