8 Signs You Are A Summer Nanny

The summer season brings warm weather, vacations, children out of school, and along with all of this the flock of nannies. The kids are out of school and the parents are stuck at work, but no fear the college nannies are here! We unintentionally develop habits that are accustomed to our job. Here are just a few of the many habits nannies have.

1. You check the weather more than the average person.

Is it going to be a pool/beach day or a movie/craft day? The answer is more important than you think.

2. You learn all of your nanny kid's mannerisms.

After spending day after day with your nanny kid you know the hour they will come up to you saying, "I'm hungry." You are an expert on what makes your nanny kid(s) mad, embarrassed, tired, and happy.

3. You find yourself becoming more domestic.

Cooking and cleaning are not my forte, that is until I became a nanny. Making lunches, packing snacks, cleaning up the kids' toys, doing dishes, cleaning up dirt tracks the kids left behind, and doing someone else's laundry become the norm. You may even find yourself start to like these tasks.

4. You are basically a glorified "Uber."

You never imagined you would drive this much, but with lessons, camps, sports practices, and play dates you find yourself chauffeuring your nanny kid(s) everywhere.

5. You can't make it through the day without at least one caffeinated drink.

Waking up early and then having to keep up with the energy of a child requires a little pick-me-up.

6. You become invested in the Disney Channel shows that the kids watch.

What do you mean Maddie and Liv are going their separate ways? What happened to "sisters by chance, friends by choice?" Yes, it is pathetic, but what else do you expect me to do when it's the only channel they watch?

7. You feel prepared to be a mother.

I have faced messes and tantrums everyday, so naturally you are fully equipped to have your own children. Deep down you also know there is no way you could handle this full time at this point in your life. You also have extreme appreciation for parents that do your job 24/7.

8. You wouldn't trade your job for any other summer job.

Yes, you basically have no social life because you work all day and then you are exhausted and want to relax. I would take caring for a fourth grade girl 8 hours a day for 5 days a week over working with annoying customers any day.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
