Parenting Lessons: Don't Watch "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle"

If you have read this blog before you know that I am a working mom and I have a nanny.  I was prudent with my hiring. I consulted friends, I posted ads in religious newspapers and university papers.  Also, at the advice of a friend, I posted on ad on http://www.care.com/. Ultimately, after a background check and reference checks we selected the woman who has been with us since our toddler was born twenty-one months ago.  She has been great and we are blessed.  Still, like all working moms I have insecurities...

I saw the movie, "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle" years ago. At that time it was just an intriguing, suspense movie. Now that I have a child it is a horror movie that has the potential to transform my dreams into nightmares...

For some reason, unknown to me,  I decided to watch the movie again tonight. It was a bad move, a really bad move. 

Here's the lesson for working moms, do not watch this movie. It will mess you up and make your mind play tricks on you just like the Geto Boys rapped about.

After watching this movie, I need a drink!
