Is this the real life?

Am writing this in the spare ten seconds I have between feeding, burping, settling, changing, playing then starting again. It's been relentless, to understate the point. We've lost our part-time nanny (she had to leave with no notice) so I've been doing it alone for a couple of weeks while desperately interviewing other nannies, a couple of whom let us down at the last minute. All very dull yet exhausting. So... would love to write more but just need to get this nanny fandango sorted, train a new person, get more than three hours sleep a night (I kid you not) stop wearing dirty tracksuit pants and catch my breath. Am hoping this will happen before 2007. If I haven't posted in a month, come in with industrial strength deodorant and fish me out of this mess!

Oh dear YC. Not good. That nanny had a touch of madness about her but she was ESSENTIAL. I am crossing everything that you will get some brilliant New Nanny who is free of facist behaviours and will actually let you leave the house some times without trying to make you feel guilty.

Thrilled to read about O. Thank God.

Oh, wow, I hope you find a very talented new nanny soon. You're quite the woman, though, to be writing coherent sentences on only three hours of sleep a night.

I was glad to hear the good news about O, too. That is awesome!

And hey, dirty tracksuit pants? The mark of a true mother. ;-)

You will find someone. And until then, we get your psychotically charged sleep-deprived thoughts which as always show a touch of self-deprecating genius. So pleased O is getting there.

Best on this one. Best nanny, quick find time. And no need for deoderant rescues, YC.

Good luck with nanny search, hope you're getting plenty of lifelines in the meantime, with or without BO basher (deodorant).
