I’m not a hater. While the majority of posts will be related to crappy situations or people, it does not constitute the entirety of a nanny’s career. Finding an amazing family is tricky and as rare as finding a 4 leaf clover that’s NOT from Chernobyl.
Luck was on my side for many years because I found a thoughtful, supportive, loving, honest, and GENUINE family to work for. I cared for their children as my own and considered them family. We had our ups and downs but we also shared many great moments. My employers were the type of people who wanted their kids to be happy, safe, and fed. And they enjoyed silly photo texts of their little ones throughout the day. I’m thankful for their time and still enjoy having them apart of my life. It was by far one of the happiest times of my life.
Nannying is a fickle profession. One moment it’s great and the next, well, you’re crying on the way home. As a nanny who has worked for many families, I thought it would be nice to share some stories of adventures from myself and others. Who am I? That’s not important. And none of your business. (curtsy)
All names, events, places, and blood-types have been changed. And for the record, there are plenty of AMAZING families who love and respect their nanny. But we’re not here to talk about them.
Big thank you to nannies who had the courage to share their stories.
