Things I Learned from Being a Nanny

A few years ago, I had my favorite job of all-time: being a nanny to an 11-month old little girl. Today, I came across something I had jotted down in my notebook during that time,which made me laugh:

  • Silence, though perhaps welcome, is usually a bad sign. A very bad sign. 

  • It is most imperative to take any and all chances to use the restroom, because once you have a child in your care, your chances to use the restroom drastically decrease.

  • Saying "No" only increases a child's desire for the item a hundred-fold.

  • Personal space does not exist for babies. Secure all articles of clothing tightly lest they be torn off or open.
