Your nanny took your daughter Olivia to lunch today at Pizza Hut. Nanny was overheard telling Olivia that she needed to tell her mother that she needed new jeans and long sleeve shirts because it was getting cold. Nanny said more than three times some variation of and you remind her that all the old shirts and jeans I want. Nanny was also asking Olivia about a pair of boots that she had. The nanny wanted to know if the boots still fit her. Olivia said they did fit her. The nanny then told Olivia that boots shouldn't be anything but loose and she should get new ones. This nanny wants very much for Olivia to go shopping I am gathering this weekend with you, Mom. And she wants to make sure that she gets all of the old clothes and that they don't go to anyone else. I have to say I was kind of aggravated to hear this nanny haggling with this little girl who could not have been more than 7 or second grade. The way that the nanny went on and on, I think the little girl has to be stressed about it. I don't like that sort of behavior in anyone. And do not dare comment and ask me what is wrong with the nanny wanting the child's clothing. This isn't a deal to be brokered with a child over lunch. In the time our meals overlapped, I never did hear any child related or fun topics come up. That sort of nanny would last eight seconds in my house.
