Jealous

Thats pretty dark

Yep, but my opinion

Sadly, this is quite common. If you're feeling generous, maybe try and cut her some slack and try and understand why she acts like she does - our lives and careers are sometimes very different to the choices our parents had and that could explain quite a lot.

I don’t express it to her. That why I’m venting on here instead 🥺

Mr. T foo!

Wrapping up maternity leave and negotiating start and end times with the nanny. What time do your nannies come over and how late do they stay? Both husband and I are consultants and our hours are so unpredictable. Nanny can come 8 hours a day. We are thinking 9-5 and then based on our day, one of us takes care of the baby for another two hours and do the bath/bed time around 7ish.
