Many of you now my husband and I recently hired a live in nanny. If you didn't know now you do. :)
A few days ago my husband was talking with our neighbor and told him that we had hired a nanny. Shortly after I he returned home I received a text from my neighbor's wife asking me why we hired a nanny. She assumed that I was going back to work. She asked me where I was going to be working. I let her know that I have not return the work and I had no intention of going back full time until the fall. Her next question was ' why do you need a live in nanny?'.
My answer to her was that it is the only possible child care situation at my husband and I are comfortable with. We spoke last night, she went on to tell me that she told her mom in a few other people that we hired a nanny. And then she proceeded to tell me about their opinions on the topic. In my opinion the things she told me we're not favorable and clearly none of her business or the concern of the people have opinions.
Can any of you tell me why some women are so hell bent on sticking their nose in other people's lives? Can anyone tell me why it such a big deal if a person who doesn't work full time or even part time hirs a live in caregiver? Why do other people feel like they get to condemn or congratulate you on your parenting style according to their philosophies on life and childrearing? Opinions on personal thoughts are 1 thing, that you actually share those thoughts and ideas with a person and potentially offend them and then feign ignorance like their opinion is not hurtful is ridiculous.
How many of you judge women and stay at home moms and working mothers who actually have help to raise their children?
