Well as you all know the baby arrived about 6 months ago and if you are reading the and you don’t know WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON MY BLOG!
After a lot of shopping around I finally used the old accounting brain and calculated that I needed a new bag for all the nappies and baby stuff as the handbag was just not taking the strain any more. I never knew there were so many baby bags out there and they are so expensive that a drastic plan of action was needed to get a good one on the cheap. I’m not planning on buying a new bag every few months after all. Hopefully nappy training will be sooner rather than later and I can dispense with all the pooing!
I did a bit of discount code searching and found a 10% off coupon from Change bag boutique who sell loads of the good quality bags and while it’s not a lot it’s better than retail right!
So thoughts please on the style I should go for. I’m swaying towards the Babymel and Storksak bags as they are great practically and actually still look like a bag.
Sometimes you just don’t get a break! When it comes to looking after children full time and being a professional nanny for a family you’re going to have your work cut out.
Looking after your taxes is the responsibility of your employers and thankfully something you don’t have to worry about. Most people employing a nanny these days use a professional nanny tax company who are usually qualified accountants to look after everything.
Looking after the kids is however your job so we’ve drawn up a few little snippets of information that will help you get your head around your new job as a professional nanny.
1. Never shout at the kids. Goes without saying!
2. Never sleep with the father of the children you’re looking after. You want to keep your job right!
3. Always be prompt when you’re asked to do something.
4. Make the kids your friends. Keep you enemies closer and all that!
It’s a good idea to join a professional organisation like https://www.bapn.org.uk/Default.aspx which will help you get employed and give you credibility. There are other organisation out there that will help give your CV a boost but keep in mind that employers looking to hire a nanny are just parents and people. People get on with people and thats you main concern when looking for a job. Get on with the people you are being interviewed by and be nice. That alone if anything is what you should take away from reading this.
So you’ve got your taxes in order, your job as a nanny and are registered with the BAPN.
Now see what you shouldn’t be doing in this video!
