I'm wondering about what people with nannies think about the down-time. For example, Ellie sleeps at least four hours during the day, sometimes more. Our nanny has said she loves to clean but should I leave her a list of tasks to do during naptimes, things like vacuuming maybe? Should I ask her to do laundry? She offered to help with that too. I'm paying her more per hour than I usually pay a sitter to be with both kids when they are sleeping in the evening so it is very tempting.
Since we are hoping to get Eleanor in to day care for the fall, I don't want to get spoiled. On the other hand, some extra help with house stuff while I am transitioning back to work might be nice.
What do you think? Should I be brave or am I thinking about asking too much?
