Deja’ Vu??

Thursday, 24 April 2008

I’m so so sorry. I know how stressful this is going to be for you.

[He’s right. This is going to be totally stressful.]

Hey, FrumeSarah, this is like deja’ vu.

[Um…no PC, it’s not deja’ vu. Deja’ vu is when you have the sensation regarding a new experience that you have experienced it before. It’s not deja’ vu when it actually DID happen!]

Is there ever a good break-up? A nanny break-up, that is. That’s right. The Frummies are nanny-less…again. I really didn’t think that anything could top the way our last nanny left.

Until now…

Three nights ago, just past 11pm, PC came home from a visit with the sibs (still out here for Pesach) to find two car seats and a house key on our front porch. No note. No nothing.

Taking a Powder

Despite the late hour, I called Nanny D. Would it surprise you that the call went to voice mail?

Um…hi Nanny. This is Frume Sarah. We found the car seats that you left on the porch and just wanted to make certain that everything is OK. Please call me and let me know.

Five minutes pass and a text arrives.

Dear FrumeSarah…I have deicded that I am not going to work anymore. I am too stressed out and really feel that I am on the verge of a breakdown because of the stress of school and bills and all that. I know that I have done is unforgivable and I am so sorry. You and your family have been so good to me. Again, I am really sorry.

What can you say to that? If balancing work and school was creating such stress, then by all means focus on school. But there is a better way to handle it.

And while we are on the subject of stress, shall we talk about the working mother of three who now has no childcare???
