My 105 days of maternity leave is over as I will resume work tomorrow. Somehow I think I've been on leave like for a year long already. I began my leave end of October last year and ended today this year. See, that's like a year!
It will also mean it's my first time leaving my baby boy home. My baby is already 3 months and 3 weeks old as we speak. Back at home, my mom employed a new maid/nanny that will take care of my baby but to make my story short, I simply just don't trust her to be left alone with my baby. My mom has also been installing surveillance camera around the house to keep an eye on our new maid while she's taking care of her grandchild. That make my mom as a paranoid grandma too.
Anyway, thanks to technology that I can simply access to watch the home cctv through my smart phone anytime and anywhere that I want. There is a free app for that, both can be found from the Android market and the Apple store. But still the worries are always there. I even prepared a four pages written manual on how to take care of my baby for the maid. YUP! It's a four pages of purely readable font, all in big caps, mostly bold and underlined details on how to take care of my baby and making sure it is understandable.
I myself do not find this to be normal but as a new mom and having my first baby I think I have the right to be paranoid and at the same time hoping the approach to be effective. I'm tempted to make a video tutorial but I guess that's way too much. Hehe!
