    This book was a gift while I was working as a nanny At first it was funny, with all of the little observations that all nannies make mainly about a certain, small subsection of women who hire nannies the wealthy, entitled, narcissistic bitches As the story progresses, it becomes obvious that the children are the losers, the parents have no business being parents, and the nannies do nothing to help make the family a better place Instead they whine about mistreatment, go along with abuse, and This book was a gift while I was working as a nanny At first it was funny, with all of the little observations that all nannies make mainly about a certain, small subsection of women who hire nannies the wealthy, entitled, narcissistic bitches As the story progresses, it becomes obvious that the children are the losers, the parents have no business being parents, and the nannies do nothing to help make the family a better place Instead they whine about mistreatment, go along with abuse, and try to replace the parent with their own immature version of love The account was infuriating because there was a great deal of truth in it, and it made me so upset recognizing the same characteristics in children, nannies and parents of my acquai...

    I read this during a series of fifteen minute breaks at my job In the interest of full disclosure, I have a bit of a grudge against any book packaged as chick lit, the literary equivalent of low cal fast food However, I thoroughly enjoyed both The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing and Prep, and understand that genuinely good fiction is sometimes whored out with candy colored covers so they ll sell, and I m always happy to be taken by surprise when that s the case Not so with this book Now, I read this during a series of fifteen minute breaks at my job In the interest of full disclosure, I have a bit of a grudge against any book packaged as chick lit, the literary equivalent of low cal fast food However, I thoroughly enjoyed both The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing and Prep, and understand that genuinely good fiction is sometimes ...

    If you must insist on reading chick lit, I recommend this one There s a romantic subplot and lots of shopping and snarky best friend banter, of course, but the main relationship in the story is between the main character called Nan or Nanny by everyone in the story and her four year old charge, Grayer Both authors used to be nannies in New York City, and you can tell they really enjoyed venting their frustration about past employers in this book There s the controlling, neurotic mother, the If you must insist on reading chick lit, I recommend this one There s a romantic subplot and lots of shopping and snarky best friend banter, of course, but the main relationship in the story is between the main character called Nan or Nanny by everyone in the story and her four year old charge, Grayer Both authors used to be nannies in New York City, and you can tell they really enjoyed venting their frustration about past employers in this book There s the controlling, neurotic mother, the absent father, the evil mistress who leaves her panties in the family s apartment leading to a hilarious scene where Nanny enlists two of her friends to help her comb the apartment searching for the panties , and a whole cast of nannies who suffer every kind of abuse from both their employers and their charges The writing goes from hilarious to heartbreaking as Nanny...
