Being a nanny is so rewarding and amazing; but it can also be kinda hard. It is a lot of responsibility and it requires a TON of patients. I currently work for a family that has two adorable little girls ages 4 and almost 6. My day to day looks so different now while we are going through this COVID-19 situation than when life was “normal,” believe it or not right now it is more exhausting than ever before. I come home so so tired everyday and barely have any energy left to do anything else. I wanted to share what a typical day as a nanny is like (at least for me.)
8am – arrive at work
8am to 9:30 am – get girls dressed and feed them breakfast.
9:30 am to 10 am- oldest one has online zoom session and youngest will play with toys.
10 am – 10:40 – we either go for a walk around the neighborhood or we will play in the backyard.
10:45 to 10:55 am – snack time
11 am – 1pm – zoom class for both girls and then homework for the older one.
1pm – lunch
2 pm to 3:30 – outside play time; sometimes we will go swimming if its hot and sometimes we will even do Zumba class, or yoga class that I find on YouTube.
3:30 to 4 pm – iPad or show time
4 to 5 pm – bath time for girls.
5pm – I’m off!
This is what my day usually looks like now. I do work more hours usually (7:30am to 6pm) but since mom is working from home I’m get 1.5 hours less a day right now.
