I just got to work. I nanny, and the mom of the family I'm with is out of town for 2 weeks. Usually when I get here everyone is still sleeping but gets up when they hear us come in. So we get here and let the dog in, and then Dad gets up and starts talking to me (which I realize now is weird because he's usually so introvert) and all the sudden the dog starts going ballistic and DD goes, "who is that? Mommy, mommy" and she's pointing out the door onto their deck. Well it's hard to explain the layout of their house but they have two exits to the backyard, one from their bedroom and one from the kitchen area. So I look out the window, and this woman is standing there like tucking her blouse into her pants and slipping shoes on, and their bedroom door is not shut all the way. She was standing right outside the bedroom door NOT at the entrance of the deck which is on the opposite side and theres a baby gate she would have had to step over. Dad goes, "oh that's the neighbor, she must be looking for Frankenstein again" and opened the door and asked her and she was like oh yeah and he said we just woke up and haven't seen him. The conversation exchange between them was totally normal but honestly their expressions IMO said they knew something I didn't. There was that look in their eyes. My heart started beating really fast right then and there and I thought OMG they are sleeping together! I'm not sure if I'm doing a good job painting you a picture but it seemed like she was totally leaving his bedroom. The weird thing was after this exchange she got in her car and drove off so how was she the neighbor over checking on a pet? And also I've been nannying for this family for 6 months I know several pets in the neighborhood and there are no cats that come into the yard, and if there were the dog would go crazy so mom would have mentioned it to me Kwim? The other evidence is there are TWO margarita glasses in the sink, though it's not uncommon for them to drink its like why two glasses if you weren't entertaining someone?
I don't know what to do from here. Should I talk to mom when I see her and tell her what happened or not get involved? I think I would normally not want to get involved but I kinda feel like I have a dirty secret and like I could be fired if I don't be honest with her. I mean I'm sure she would want to know if some woman is around her kids, Kwim?
Well I think this is getting long but that's where I'm at. :-/
