I feel the exact opposite!

Here's why. You say the nannying is causing you to feel that your own daughter's needs are being put on the backburner. At least with the night job, your daughter is sleeping and you will be happy knowing that you spent the day meeting her needs and giving her your attention. This is coming from someone who chooses to be a WAHM working nights after my kids are in bed. Is it tiring? Yep, you bet. But it's worth it to me.

You can always go back to nannying in a few years when your kids are older. There will always be a demand.
