Monthly To-Do List for Nannies

File your tax return by April 15th, or file for an extension. If you owe money and do not have the payment, you still must file.

Hide view of your driver's lisence. If you can open your purse or wallet and any bystander can read your name and address from your drivers license, turn the driver's lisence backwards or move it to another part of your purse.

Make your passwords tougher. Combine capital letters, lower case letters, and numbers. Derive your password from an unique sentence that only you know. For example, "John & Sara are 5 & 7 years old and attend Johnson Elementary School" would make the password: J&Sa5&7yoaaJES. A more effective passwod than your birthdate or pet's name.

If your GSP unit is stolen, the thief can find the way to your door of you have enetered "HOME" as your actual address. Instead, enter a location that is near your home, like a retail store.

Don't be a fool. Make no purchases from television or radio or from anyone that makes claims that are too good to be true. Those tutuorials that claim to make you rich, pay off your debt painlessly, or to buy houses for no money should be ignored.

Plan summer travel now. If you want to travel around the 4th of July holiday, start planning now to get the best deals.

All great tips. I found out an ex boyfriend was reading my emails and facebook accounts since my password was too easy (my dog's name). So good points about thinking of a sentence then taking the first letters and numbers from the sentence.

Also loved this issue on sleep schedules. Can't wait until you post some of that info and hear what nannies have to say about the Babywise system and the firm methods. I am a strong beleiver in gentle methods and love Dr Karp and The Happiest Baby on the Block.
