My nanny and I took the children to see a children's movie on Monday.
After about 1/2 hour, my daughter said she needed to use the bathroom. I sprang into action, since I usually am at work, I was ready to be hands on. The nanny said, "No, I got it" and took my daughter. They were gone almost a whole ten minutes, which seemed long.
When my daughter came back and climbed in her seat next to me, I said, "All good" and she smiled. I said, "I would have taken you." and she said, "Millie has to throw up anyway.".
Last night, I made popcorn for the kids and put on a movie because I had to work and needed them to be occupied. I set them up in the family room which is off of my office. After a few minutes, my son interrupted me saying that my daughter was "hogging up the popcorn.".
I went in there to resolve the situation and noticed that most of the popcorn was gone. I was shocked, because, my daughter is 5. I said, "did you spill that?" She said "No, I ate it fast". I went to make another bag of popcorn when I heard my daughter add to my son, "Millie says throwing up popcorn feels the best and after that hot eggs.".
Long, long story short. I sat down and talked to my daughter and the nanny has not only been eating and throwing up, but sharing some of this information with my five year old. Like, "popcorn has nutrition anyway, your body doesn't need it" and "I didn't mean to throw up eggs, but they come up easy."
Please don't weep for this 26 year old, VERY healthy, BIG BONED (probably a size 16) nanny. I am outraged that my children were exposed to this. I texted her last night to let her know I was taking the day off. Is there any reason at all I should let her return to work? I have not said word one to the nanny yet, but really don't see where there would be any point!
