So we had a Housekeeper/Nanny!!!

Monique on her first day with us

I started my day with a coffee in my hand and a couple of resume of a housekeeper that Im getting ready to give a call and have them come at our place for an interview. Jeff and I reviewed the rules and the contract format in hiring a housekeeper/nanny that the embassy gave us. We were briefed well by the embassy on this matter. I made a call to this girl and ask her if she can come for an interview and she sounded so happy and delighted about my call that she wanna come right away and yes she did! She speaks english and french which is a plus, she likes Claire and Claire say she already miss her hehehe. I did the interview while Jeff is in the backyard playing with Claire and at the same time keeping Claire away from us while the interview is going on. I make sure I state everything of what I want her to do around the house but our most concern in hiring her is to watch over Claire after school because soon enough Im going to work at the embassy too!! I'll be meeting with the Health Practitioner on Tuesday. We pretty much agree on everything and we hired her!! She'll be working with us as a part time housekeeper/nanny and she gonna start tomorrow!! So we have a housekeeper now!!! Cool! The first thing I'll ask her to do is a general cleaning of the house, we've been here for a week now and been going back and forth to the embassy for the briefing and meeting people so we hardly clean the house, so me and Monique will burn a lot of calories tomorrow hehehe. Im hoping we could keep her the whole time we are here on post. more coffee pls..
