So, I got fired from the family I worked for past 3 years. The reason is I became too attached to the little girl, she adopted. Before she was in foster care. However, the truth is I was looking for new job for the past month and have been sick, my daughter too and called off more frequently. BTW, mom hates when I called off. So, I don't know how this made me too attached to her, I wanted to leave because I was underpaid, unchallenged doing "babysitting." Mom thought that I am different since adoption and not loving towards her daughter, nursing wise she had no complains, just she felt I am withdrawing from her. And I told her, I am looking for new job part-time, I have my family and I am not her mother, I am a nurse and I only take care of her.
Three days later, she called our DON and told her that she doesn't want me to work for her because I told her I feel like I am her mother-the girl's mother I take care of.
But the truth is she twisted the words. She knew I will quit soon, so she fired me to get even. I have meeting with DON next week. I don't know what to say because I feel anything I say will be used against me. In addition, DON is on mom's side. I just feel, I was stabbed in the back for all the work I did for her.
