temp nanny

Has anyone out there hired a nanny for a week or two while you went on holidays.....that is, and left the children behind.
Am interested to know how the whole experience was, especially if the kids didn't know the nanny previously. Would you do it again??

tilba - never done this and don't know how old your kids are, but I would be very wary of leaving my child for that length of time if I didn't have any experience of the nanny. Firstly because I'd be worried she'd turn out to be absolutely cxxx - and secondly because I'd want to be certain the kids were happy in her company and that I was happy with the way she cared for them.

Tilba - I think I'd like the children to know the Nanny first and vice versa, but I suppose they could watch the kids a few times before you actually go. Sorry - I've no experience of this, I'm sure someone else will be more helpful.
