The Nanny Diaries

Setting: The church choir room.
Situation: I am picking the girls up from their piano lessons. My nanny's younger sister is beginning her lesson...

Me: I don't think the girls will be able to do piano the week school starts. Rachel (the nanny) starts school the week before, so she won't be able to get them here in time.

Piano teacher: That's okay. I was thinking of taking the week off anyway.

Jessica (nanny's little sister): Oh! Rachel and I already worked it out. My lesson is at 4 and the girls have 5 and 5:30 during school, so she should be able to get us all here on time.

Me: See what I mean? These kids don't even need me anymore!

Jessica: Oh yeah, and since Rachel starts school before us (she is going to a different district), I will keep the girls week after next if your husband can drop them off at our house on his way to work.

Me: AAAANNND that just clinches it. I am obviously superfluous in this situation!

Don't ever doubt they need you...just not in the same way as before.
