Our new nanny started last Friday. In preparation for her being here to watch the girls for 3 hrs in the mornings on MWF - we put a baby gate up and Grammy made a curtain to hang across the office door so that if Carli decided she needed to come help me this might would discourage her. On Friday she did come to the gate several times and ask for me, but Cari handled her well and told her that "Momma was working" and distracted her. Monday, Carli didn't come to the gate once! I think she really enjoys having Cari's undivided attention and I get my work done so that the afternoons are much less stressful and we can enjoy our time together much more.
So, Friday when it was time to get ready for bed, Keith told Carli to go get ready for her bath and she promptly ran into my office, pulled the curtain shut and told him she couldn't she was working. When we pulled the curtain back, there she sat just a clicking away!
She's a pretty good little co-worker! :)
