Moms Blog: Part 3
Thread subject: ‘Bad Nannies’
Talitha: Was in WS Park and saw a bunch of obese lazy Nannies yapping on their cells and kids doing all kinds of terrible stuff – I have to go back to work soon – one dc – am terrified
How-It-Is: So stay home and open a Nanny detective agency
Buttercup: Nanny Cam
How-It-Is: DUH They don’t work in parks unless your dh works for Homeland security and you get to bug the entire neighborhood
SuperWoman: Nanny Cams don’t work in parks
LisaH: Take a day off work and follow your new Nanny
Anna: Morbidly curious (my dc’s go to WS Park) what did you see?
Talitha: Unattended children some as young as 12 months kids strapped into strollers crying kids knocking other kids off rides dirty kids one baby pushed down huge slide on own was clearly terrified Nannies were laughing
How-It-Is: OMG was that ‘Anna ’ your baby on the slide?
LisaH: Two words Daycare
Anna: Not funny
How-It-Is: That’s one word and they’re plague pits
Buttercup: Not all Nannies are like that
Talitha: Where do I find a good Nanny?
Tina: I recommend a good Nanny agency costs a stack upfront but is well worth the investment.
Lori: I found my excellent Nanny on ****’s List
LisaH: Try to get a good Nanny for years 0-3 then a good Daycare facility 3 :1 ratio is best
InSync: Do you ‘LisaH ’ own a Daycare by any chance?
Buttercup: Nanny with Nanny Cam
How-It-Is: But not (a Cam) in the park unless it’s attached to a slide
Lori: Get a good Nanny
Jane: DUH. Priceless advise Lori.
Talitha: Thanks everyone
