I know this is a board for spotting nannies that are up to no good, but it is also the only place I could think of to ask both moms and nannies a question. My nanny is fantastic, the kids love her, my husband and I can't remember how the household ran without her.
Besides being a nanny she is also a fantastic cook. When she was young she said her parents ran their own catering business and everything just rubbed off on her. I am going to be entertaining some clients soon and I want to ask her if she can cook for us.
I am just not sure how to go about asking her. I have the menu all planned out and I think everything is within her abilities, we could go shopping together for the ingredients, I think that would be fun. My husband says she's not the boogey man and just go ahead and ask her. We'd be willing to pay, of course, I'm not sure how much however. All she'll have to do is cook, serve and clean up for one night. My husband and I will handle the kids, of course I don't know how to keep them from being under her feet since they love her so.
So how would you ask? How much would you pay?
