From breaking Mr. Fluffy to breaking a finger. Accidents happen. Putting together an emergency information checklist can save you and your nanny a lot of stress and subsequent trips to the hairdresser to cover stressed induced grey hairs.

Scotty has soccer on Mondays, footy on Tuesdays, rest day on Wednesday and interpretive dance on Thursdays, except every second week he has calligraphy instead. Got it? Having a timetable of your kids’ school routines, activities and chores is good for both your, and your nanny’s, sanity. If it’s written down everyone knows what is happening when, where and how.
