I don't really have a problem, just something I find very annoying. We've always hired the same sort of nanny, English or American, some college, active, etc. This last nanny who has been with us four months is as I see her as good as some of our better ones but not necessarily better. My husband however, has nothing to say but good things about her. Here is an example, one morning, she broke the toaster, taking a piece of toast out with tongs. It sparked and then went dead. This was not a big deal and I would probably have just picked up a toaster later that day, since we use the toaster a lot. Right away,my husband rushes over to the toaster, asks her if she is okay, Unplugs the toaster and takes it out to the trash. He then tells me not to worry about it that he will pick up a new toaster that day. And he did. That is so out of character for him. No, this nanny is not especially attractive. I don't think it has to do anything with him being attracted to her, she's not unattractive, but we've had attractive nannies before. The first time my husband's mother came to visit, the nanny was relatively new, so when mil didn't offer criticism, I assumed she was just cutting the new nanny slack. However, oddly enough, when I walked in to the kitchen on Thursday night, the nanny was chatting on the house cordless phone and I assumed it was with a friend, listening to her tone. When she saw me, she had, "It's ____". and handed me the phone. Yes, Mil was just calling to confirm details of her arrival on Sunday, but something isn't sitting well with me. Any thing???
