In regards to this post:
I brought up with my employer the fact that I am taking on more work- not just with the kid getting older (and busier) but doing more tasks around the house- especially now since she’s making fucking lists for me to follow and ‘accomplish’ everyday, and she tells me:
you don’t have to do these chores. I just ask that you do, so that when [the child] is napping, you’re actually doing something, and you’re working.
Yeah, because being here, supervising your child and making sure it doesn’t die isn’t working. Not at all….
Part of the reason I babysit is because i’m as student. I count on the kids’ sleeping time as my study time. It’s been like that with all the families i’ve worked for. And it was like that with this one, until now for some reason….
