Can I just say that this is why my job is recession-proof?? You know what Trixie and Dash learned today? This Little Light of Mine, not how to commodify their infant bodies. Do I sound uptight? I'm not. I can admit this is cute. But when you have kids (moms, back me up) you are gripped by this daily fear that every action, every word, every look, will have a profound effect on your child. If I give in and let him eat that cookie, will I establish a pattern of disobedience and unhealthy eating habits?? If I don't give him that cookie will he be a lower middle class factory worker because he confuses following the rules with not thinking for himself?? I'm serious, sometimes I am paralyzed with such concerns.
Anyway, enjoy watching a kid you're not responsible for.
I have a degree in cultural anthropology and I'm currently employed as a live-in nanny for five crazy/beautiful children in the DC suburbs. Actually, I'm more of a glorified sidekick for the fabulous French woman I work for, Coco Roshambo. And, underneath all these other titles, I'm a story teller. So that's what you'll find here in my blog, zany stories about me, Coco, her kids, her husband (Bobby Habibi), and a whole slew of other characters I encounter along the way. I'm from the Deep South (Mississippi) so everything's written with a twang. Keep checking up on me and I promise to keep you entertained, if not enlightened as well. And, just a warning: I do not know if there is a stereotype for nannies, but if there is, I am sure I do not fit it.
