Nanny Days

Our part-time nanny started yesterday. And by part-time, I mean that she works three days a week for twelve hours each day. That would hardly be considered part-time to many people. Our daughter Hanna is not yet three-months-old but my wife had no choice but to start her new job yesterday in Greenwich, Connecticut. And so for the past two days I have left at my usual time in the morning to catch the train. But instead of giving my wife and daughter a kiss goodbye, I am now just giving my daughter a goodbye kiss and thanking the nanny before I run out the door. Hopefully the nanny works out. Not only are we trusting her with our child, but we’re trusting her in our home for hours on end each week. The reality of two incomes is nice, but marrying a doctor does require some changes and sacrifices; not having a parent at home for much of the week is one of them. And since in the end I will always be a man, my hard-working wife is probably thinking that she could use a wife.
