My daughter’s nanny was ditched last Sunday for many reasons, which happened in several unexpected occurences. Counting the first event would be horrific to a parent like me especially when you hear her teaching words like ‘p_n!s” to a 1-year old girl. So I got upset and told her not to teach my kid anything like that, and she should just keep it to herself if she feels “an urge” or whatever.
Confident that my daughter would no longer hear such words because of my stern warning, everything went back to normal. Several incidents followed weeks later with her mother staying with us for two (2) days acting like a boss. I rattled and immediately talked to her so she could bring her mother to a relative. Several days after, I heard her disrespecting my mother. That same day, I was also informed by our helper that this nanny taught my daughter the same word again. I couldn’t help it anymore. I screamed on top of my lungs and immediately asked her to leave the next day.
I was relieved that she’s no longer with us. But Zoe was left without a nanny attending to her. An accident occurred. She pulled the folding bed (a really big and heavy one) that immediately crashed on her and left her pinned on the floor yesterday. We rushed her to the hospital at midnight because she vomitted.
While at the St. Luke’s ER, the doctor asked who was attending to my daughter. I could not give any answer at all. I was working and the maid was (tired and asleep). It came to my senses that my husband is so right. Zoe should have a nanny who would really look after her and the maid could not do all things at once.
We hope that we could find someone who would not just look after our daughter but who would also guide her in the best possible way.
