I need opinions...
So we have a sitter 1/2 days Monday and Tuesday and full days Wednesday and Thursday. She was the greatest find in the beginning and she still is very good with Colby.
She's starting to really get on my nerves. When we hired her I made it explicitly clear multiple times that there was NO housekeeping involved at all. It's hard enough for me to be away from Colby all day, I still want to feel like I'm "in charge" of all the stuff I was in charge of before.
But... she has started doing things.
She rearranges his toy baskets every day.
She cleaned our stove top the other day.
She dust busted our bathroom.
She has emptied trash barrels.
She dusted our tv stand.
She rotates out Colby's blankets and refolds all of them in his room.
She takes the mirror out of his crib every.day.
She dust busted our couches.
Then there was his bookshelf.
The bookshelf was the straw that broke the camel's back. I had the bookshelf arranged in a certain way, stuffed animals were grouped by who gave them to him and when (before birth, in the hospital, etc.). His turtle that matches Connor's was front and center. Books were grouped in a certain way. His angel feather from Connor was prominent. Toys in baskets were arranged by type.
Basically he was organized in a way that I would never organize the rest of my life, but I liked it. (My control freak tendencies coming out?)
Now the bookshelf is completely reorganized. And I HATE it. But the worst part... the only time I can figure that she would have been able to clean his bookshelf so throughly would have been when he was awake. There's no way that someone could have cleaned it while he was sleeping in the same room.
So, I don't know what to do. I don't know if I am being too freakish. I mean, she's cleaning... she's not destroying our house or something. But I find it annoying and slightly insulting. What do I do?
And am I crazy? :)
