The nanny shaft

Week one in Kirkland: not that bad! In fact, it's pretty enjoyable. There are tons of beach parks, playgrounds, and a community center. Redmond Town Center is about 10 minutes away which is great since we can go to the book store for story time.

But there is one thing-- not a nanny can be found. I tuned into every conversation at the open gym time at the CC today and every single person referred to themselves as mom, dad, or grandma. I put an ad on and got one real response and one "pay for a nanny group" response. Oh well. The house is huge and with things to do in the area, we aren't exactly dying for immediate playmates.

Guess I'll have to try to make friends with 40 year old moms in yoga pants.
