"You're the best nanny ever!" Tom whooped when I told him the news: Nando's for dinner.
Ordinarily I would never take the kids to any fast-food place; I believe in balanced home-cooked meals- like any good nanny worth their job.
Of course Tom would think this after my announcement. I mean, what else do I do with a 10-year old dressed in nothing but a t-shirt and shorts, sitting outside in the rain, at dinner time because I've locked the keys in the house? And of course, the four spare keys I cut this morning are on the kitchen counter because I hadn't handed them to the neighbours as I was meant to.
And let's not forget that I'm babysitting tonight…
Yip. I'm the best nanny. Ever.
