Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

How to NOT get hired to work for May
I’ve advertised for a care assistant for May. I have one person, who May loves, a part-timer from her nursery. But, now that our respite money is finally in our account, only five months after the government was meant to deposit it – and three months after we hired the part-timer – we need another.
You may think five months is a long time to pay up, but that is nothing! Lambeth Council contacted me this week by email instructing me that our disabled parking spot, which we applied for shortly after May’s birthday last April, will be delayed again, until June. That’s over a year! They helpfully included a diagram of our street and where the disabled parking spot will go… someday.
I emailed Mr. Smith – that’s his real name – over a week ago to ask the status of the parking space. He waited to reply until literally a few minutes before he left for on annual leave until – conveniently – June. Which I thought showed remarkable cowardice.
Keeping to the theme of people I would never hire, I give you the following respondents to my classified ad for May’s assistant. These are both real responses, though I removed the names and cut the second one short.
im sure of doing d job and also make d baby happy please
My name is C—, I’m a 24 year old, I’ve got a Bachelor and a Master degree in international relations, diplomacy, and arts. I am very communicative, trustworthy and open minded. I speak fluently English, Romanian and Russian, understand French and Spanish.
I am also a professional dancer…
I think I’ll keep the ad up for a few more days.
When hiring someone to work with May, what traits do you think I should look for?
