I am a nanny and my boss is out of town on business and her ex husband and I are perfectly capable of taking care of the kids while she's gone.
So the youngest gets a fever and I can tell he's sick so I send mom a text and tell her I gave him Tylenol and then her ex tells her overnight he had a fever and he had to give him Tylenol plus now he has a cough
She wants him to go to the doctor so she calls and makes an appointment.
Dad had to leave today as soon as I got here for his own business trip.
So I take him to the doctor and when the nurse says follow mommy to the room I say ohh I'm his nanny she just looks at us and walks into the room.
So she asks me about his symptoms and I tell her and then she leaves and the doctor comes in.
The first thing out of her mouth is "let me get this straight, you're the nanny?" And I say yes and she says "well his MOM should be here" I say well moms on a business trip and I'm more than capable of answering your questions.
She becomes short with me and although she looks at him and such she just isn't really nice after that.
Mom does usually take him, she just can't today. Heck this is the third in his almost 4 years that I've had to take him to the doctor and I can answer the same questions mom can so get off your high horses and take care of the sick kid on front of you rather than judge his mom because she is a working single mother who can't always take off.
