It's been a very full on week. There's been moments where I've loved it, but there's also been moments where I've found myself wondering what I'm doing, especially why I'm doing this to you. Although you've apparently had terrifically fun days with your new friends the two nanny's, your sleeping's been dreadful and I can't help but feel it's your way of expressing your separation anxiety. I'm sorry for whatever I'm putting you through, I think you're being amazing. I'm looking forward to a fun weekend together full of lots and lots of cuddles. Six weeks to go and counting.
(One of our lovely nanny's just sent me this photo.)

Quit your job and be a mum to that baby of yours! And while youre at it quit calling her babysitters nannies! I think you have been watching too many american films!

Quite a strong opinion for someone with no identity... obviously you lead a very sheltered life, Anonymous. Because I'm sure it's purely by choice that Kellie goes to work and leaves her beloved in the care of nann.... oh, sorry... babysitters. The smart cookie found a way out of having to be at home with her baby all day! Because what mother wants to do that?

Just rethinking my comment here... your whole situation got me thinking about my future as a mother.... and I guess at this stage I can't imagine that I will want to work. But that's because Lalie is only 5 months old and this is all a new novelty for me. But I have to admit that I do feel that a big part of me has been put on the back burner. I used to have a lot of pride in myself, my appearance... I kept up with fashion and design. I know it might seem superficial but this stuff was my life and I loved it. These days I'm just all Mother and while this suits me at the moment....I expect there will come a day over the next year or so when I will seriously crave the old me. And I think going to work or starting a business will be the ideal way to do that.... so I guess what I'm trying to say is that I understand the need for mothers to work, regardless of financial position. And I look forward to that time where I get to be the old me again every now and then! And the extra cash certainly won't hurt! xx

Nannies originated in England (and became popular in European colonies), so not sure what American films have to do with anything...

This person is a troll who will most likely never come back (as they were too gutless to sign their comment in the first place).

Just ignore it and keep doing what you are doing. Olive is an absolute gem! She is also very lucky to have been born into such a genuine & loving home with such a great Mum (and Dad too)! Life has always been about balance and trade offs... for Olive, for you, for your family. Its never easy and everyone's situation is different - so anyone that can judge absolutely is clearly ignorant.
