Apparently, Summer Nanny misunderstood her job description and instead of "playing with the children" she just "watched the children play." Olie and Bubba played downstairs most of the day while Summer Nanny sat upstairs playing Solitaire. Oh, she took them outside for awhile but she mostly just watched them play. Hmm...not exactly what I had in mind. I can watch them play and still get my work done. I want someone to hunt for bugs with them and spin extraordinary tales fit for dress-up adventures and be completely available for random toddler train play.
Do I expect too much? Madhubby thinks "maybe." Bingo Becky set a high bar - she was the best nanny we've ever had despite her sorority ties - and I compare everyone to her. It's a shame she won all that money, otherwise, I'd look her up and offer her a job.
Summer Nanny is here for two more days, especially since I promised my boss a super important project by Friday, but after that we'll just have to see how it goes. She could just be nervous or bored or both. Two more days ought to work out the kinks and if it doesn't, Summer Nanny will be Unemployed Nanny.
