Nearly nine years after her first day of working as a full-time live-in nanny, local childcare expert Lacy Miller gave birth to her very own 7 lb. 6 oz. baby girl. The 27-year-old decided not to return as a mother’s helper and instead made the brave choice to focus on taking care of her child as a stay-at-home mom.
“It’s so nice to finally be the boss,” says Miller, rocking her newborn child.
“Professionally speaking, this is the best thing that could have happened to me,” Miller stated. “I’ve been working nine years for this kind of promotion. Now I can focus on what I really love for the next 18 years or so.”
The first thing Miller did after receiving her promotion was buy a complete new wardrobe to go with her new job title: “Mom.” According to Miller, “Nannies get to wear yoga pants for comfort and activity, tennis shoes for being out and about, and a zip-up hoodie for when you get chilly on the bus. As a stay-at-home mom, you have to wear loose-fitting sweat pants, a few pairs of Crocs, and throw out all of your bras for breast-feeding.” She adds, “You really have to dress for the job you want.”
Since the news broke on her LinkedIn page, Miller has been bombarded with congratulatory flowers, Edible Arrangements bouquets, and diapers delivered to her interim office, located at Saint Elizabeth’s hospital room 3A. “It’s a coworking space,” she explains. “Just while we paint the new office.”
The only one not-so-happy for her is her former boyfriend. Will Rainey, who reportedly broke up with Miller upon hearing of her promotion. Rainey simply could not handle Miller’s success, stating, “I’m not ready for this!” and “There’s no way this can be true.”
Miller takes it with a grain of salt, saying, “Some men just can’t handle a strong career woman committed to her work. Plus he really didn’t like it when I got fat.”
