Nanny to Mommy: STOP the Sugar Overload!

The mom of the kid I babysit reprimanded me for giving her daughter water instead of juice. WHAT?


It's Your Fault Your Kid Is Violent

I am sorry to be a buzzkill, but it is not cute or funny when your kid points a gun at me and shoots (even if it is a toy)!


Why I Win the Mommy Title

Now don't get me wrong, your puppy is cute. Its floppy ears and excited energy are easy to get carried away with, but I DON'T DO PETS! They are messy, they smell, and this one is not trained.

Nanny Diaries: CPR is a Must!

I recently renewed my CPR + First Aid certification, and with the recent news of Billy Bob Thornton's daughter's tragic babysitting experience, I am so glad that I did. In fact, I would say that any parent that does not require it of their childcare provider is a fool.

It was nice weather this week, so when you asked me to take your kids to the water park, I figured it was a pretty good deal. It was sunny, I was bringing along a friend because three toddlers at a water park is just too much for anyone, but then your daughter opened her mouth and let out a stream of bad words.
