This week we try to put the shoe on the other foot! We ask ourselves the question of how we would be as nanny employers. What kinds of questions would we ask in the interview? Would we leave the house clean or messy? How would our expectations of the nanny be- tough or easy? We try to see things from the other side of the nanny-employer equasion. As always we welcome your input!!
