Would you hire a hot nanny?

The other thread about being jealous of the nanny reminded me of this. Everyday when I come home from school I pass by the most gorgeous nanny (she looks all of 18), waiting with one of her charges for another one to get off the bus. She's been dressed in shorts up to there and low cut belly shirts. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would hire her. I mean, you can trust your husband but still, who needs it? Even if your husband didn't have a wandering eye, I'd hate to have to compare myself to some PYT all the time.

I had a friend who was rather average looking and she hired an absolute knockout of a nanny from Romania. This girl looked like a model, and she also used to run around in a t-shirt and panties.

Is it me, or would this bug anyone else?

This would definatley bug me. In a BIG way! I KNOW I can trust my husband (I can see everything he does all day because he works on our property) but I DO NOT trust women in general...and a friend lost her husband to the babysitter, who was all of 17. But hey, i'm sure a 40 yr old man has PLENTY in common with her. JMO, Megan

Not just you. I wouldn't do it either and I trust my DH completely.

Plus, if she's dressed minimally like you described, I wouldn't want my kids around her. Not professional at all.

Your friend's nanny ran around in PANTIES??!! What the h*ll is up with THAT? I'd have the girl out the door so fast . . . that's just icky.

I am with you on this one, slim. I trust my DH-he is on chemo and exhausted. He wouldn't have energy for an affair. I just would not want to have to compare my body to her. Selfish and shallow, yes.

I might change my mind if she was totally awesome with the kids and agreed to clean my house for free.

Yeah, well I guess it only happened the first week. She slept in a t-shirt and panties (like many of us), so she would come downstairs wearing just that (unlike many of us). My friend had to tell her to put on a robe or get dressed.

Meanwhile the husband would tell the other men "Oh you should see our new nanny", like he was showing off some prize.

No way, no how, would that girl be working for me either, even if she had the demeanor of Mary Poppins. No nanny is THAT good!

No way she'd be our nanny. (and even a bigger No Way that she'd be our *live-in* nanny.)

It's funny -- the other day, I was at a neighbor's house and their semi-regular babysitter was there (2 days/week). She looked about 20, about 5 foot 8 or 9, weighing probably 120 pounds, gorgeous hair/eyes/smile, wearing these hot low rise jeans which showed off her toned abdomen. She was bubbly and the kids adored her. Eeeek -- a little too eerie for me...

Hummm, right now in the process of hiring a nanny so No, I dont think somone who is utimatley beautiful and flaunt's it would sway me not to hire her. If she was the one who i wanted i would hire her but she would not be walking rouind my house with t-shirt and panties.

I agree. My nanny's a lesbian.

I'd hire a hot nanny only if he were male. ;-) Otherwise, he** no.

Why compare yourself?

My dd is one of those pyts. She babysits in the neighborhood. She is drop dead gorgeous, 15 and already a 34D with a booty to match, blonde and blue-eyed. Most importantly, she's smart and has a good work ethic. I would hope that her looks wouldn't stop her from becoming gainfully employed simply because some insecure spouse would feel threatened.

I hire all our staff, household and otherwise. Believe me there has never, ever been a good-looking chick in the bunch. Dh often jokes about this, but, that is the way it is.
