A bit OT, but when my son was a baby, he really did only like the fat babysitters. It was a little odd, because his dad and I are skinny, but I could not leave him in the church nursery or anywhere unless there was a big fat mama to hold him.
Now he's 13 and thinks girls are from the moon, but the ones he admits to finding pretty are of normal weight, so I'm pretty sure his thinking wasn't affected by the fact that I did seek out overweight babysitters for him.
Please note, folks: I'm not using the word "fat" in a derogatory sense, merely a descriptive one with no judgment implied.
Hmmm, and here I thought nannies just left boys/men with a hankerin' for fat-bottomed girls.
Shows what I know!

LOL, and on his birthday as a special treat his wife dresses up in a governess uniform and spanks him. Those are the good times for little Dennis.
BTW, I am reminded of the one family I knew that had a male nanny. He was a slightly hippy kinda dude, named Sam, and his dog was named Son of Sam. His charges were 3 little girls. Now did they grow up to dream of a hippy who caters to their every whim? What nanny does that anyway?

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.
