I’m not a good babysitter – I never really have been. The dynamic I can’t understand with babysitting is why kids need you to entertain them the entire time. Maybe it’s because growing up I preferred to stay in my room and just sort of create things with my imagination, but I don’t get it.
I conclude from this that I would make a terrible nanny. Having to be a babysitter day in and day out for many hours at a time sounds like a nightmare, especially if the kids themselves are tricky, like the ones in these confessions from real nannies.
12. Not fair
11. Drugged up
A little dab probably won’t hurt…
10. A big dump
Is he super clumsy or is it some sort of power move?
9. Taking a toy
The rich get richer.
8. A clean sweep
Irresponsibility all around.
That is not a fun power dynamic.
6. Skin deep
Kids just roast and they don’t even know it.
5. Different worlds
“She’s just raising our children, no need to pay her a living wage.”
4. In the weeds
Ok but it sounds like he’s going to jail soon.
3. Hunger strike
How are kids like this? They burn off a million calories a day, how are they not starving?
2. Purchase denied
This makes me want to burn the entire app industry to the ground.
1. I swear
Here’s to you, nannies of the world. You’re braver than I.
Do you have experience watching kids? What was it like?
