Beatley Library in Alexandria,Virginia

Great Nanny Sighting in Alexandria, VirginiaNot a specific sighting, but rather a few observations over a period of time. I've seen your nanny a number of times at the Beatley Library in Alexandria Virginia. She's got to be a nanny or a full time babysitter - WAY too young to be these kid's mother - she cannot be older than 17. She's great with your kids. She seems to have a great routine with them, settling the two older ones (possibly 7-9?) down for homework and reading to or listening to the younger one (4?) read. She always sets aside 15 minutes to look for "checking out" books, and is positively full of suggestions for them to read. She also interacts with other kids in the children's section, and once it ended up reading not only to your daughter but four or five other little ones who were around. I'm at the library all the time with my two youngest ones, and I can hope that when I look for a nanny I can find somebody as fun as she is.

This post made me smile as well. Nice to see something positive for a change. Notice how the positive post doesn't get many responses though? The negative ones are always responded to. Such a shame.

OP, have you ever thought about telling the nanny directly how awesome you think she is with the kids? I think it would probably make her day at the very least.

Definitely tell her! I'm a nanny, and I know that when people compliment me on how I interact with the little girl I look after, it encourages me to focus on trying my best even on the tougher days.

tell her!
