Last year I had a 16 year old girl who was great at playing games with Skye and taking her out. But she didn't know how to cook so every morning before work I would have to prepare lunch for them both, put the saucepan on the hob, weigh out the right amount of pasta or rice and leave a note saying how long to cook it for!
She was also very accident prone. Last summer she:
- Dropped a hot iron on her leg.
- Fainted whilst holding Skye.
- Got knocked over by a passing motorino.
- Was hit in the face by an exploding champagne cork
I also came home early one evening, at 10 instead of 11pm and found Skye still awake watching tv alone in the living room. Babysitter girl was in my bedroom, styling her hair with my hair straighteners while chatting on the phone. When asked, she swore she hadn't been using the hair iron even thought it was still hot and she still had a butterfly clip sectioning her hair.
I sort of lost trust in her after that. But I can't find anyone else so I'm stuck with her. She has just started working for me again last weekend but has already informed me that she can't work next Saturday. Which is when I need her the most..
Is 3 too young to start working in a shop? Because I think I will just have to take Skye with me and try my best to keep her sticky mitts off the posh frocks!
