    You don't even have to give her notice if you just pay that amount. With what you have written I would fire her immediate ly. I am surprised that you are so casual about it.

    My H was too mild with her and fighting me for her. He was giving her empathy and liked her for handling my daughter or spending time with her. My H when does not listen, does not. This is another story or issue in my house but he learnt when he saw her leaving baby alone himself. Still he calmed down and said she did only once, will not do again. I was at the verge of deciding to let her go.

    I told him once it happened in talks that she was ready and proposing me to let baby alone in swing to put car seats in car and i warned her. Again she did that, and got caught. It means when we are not in home, she could have done that.

    She called me Friday evening that she is moving on for more money and giving me 1 week notice. I said okay and was happy. I started talking to other nanny who wants to start in November. Tonight( just 30 mins ago) she texted that she thought I asked her to no need of notice, she can go now so now for a week we are on our own. ..Liar and no ethics. My H got his lesson.

    I told him never to mistrust mothers instinct.
    Infact today morning also he was talking in her favor and now his views are different.

    When will H or some people, start respecting people who are around them,and value their opinion more than people who are strangers. To my each objection, he would say, you are overjudging.

    Just FYI, I am very lenient and let go of many things. I never asked her about her dirty dishes she used to leave around the house to add to my work. When I had said 'yes' to her, next day I found another nanny which was way better so out of ethics, did not say no to first one, even thoughtits our baby and his safety.. no ethics when is it baby.. my foolishness..Lesson for me also.

    Lessons learnt
    Priority is
    1 Baby safety is very important.
    2 Baby teaching.
    Why do you need your husband's permission to terminate the nanny.??

    Doesn’t sound/ look right
    People who are greedy in eating, can be greedy in other areas too.
    Especially didn’t like that she left the baby alone

    Hi,
    Yes my nanny left. I felt relieved but when she did not serve the noticed and ditched at the last hour, i felt very bad. so past week was very hard for us w/o help and working. It was bad and busy from work front.
    I had to tell my manager about situ and he did not like it. For some reason, they do not want to hear baby situations at home, no matter how family oriented atmosphere is in office. Anyways i had no option. I was going to office but it was hard to focus with meetings at home.
    Now I have desi nanny and lets c how it goes.
