Nanny Tip of the Week! It’s Back-to-School time, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to show off your organizational skills. Sew in labels to the children’s clothing, color code events in the family calendar, offer to go get the mini van washed, create “sport sacs” for each child with all of their necessary clothing and equipment, label the pantry and stock up on snack foods and fruits from the farmer’s market. Make sure your cell phone is updated with all the necessary contact numbers and play date information. If you really want to make an impression, as a thank you to the parents for taking you on vacation this summer or for paying you the weeks you had off while they were out of town, offer them a complimentary date night in August 🙂
