I am a widower, and a single father to 7 children. Since my wife died I have employed various nannies to help me handle this responsibility. They never seem to last long...

My current nanny has been dressing my children up in rags, answering back, and teaching them god awful songs to sing to my new gorgeous girlfriend. She has also been hiding my eldest DD's love affair with a racist boy from me.

WIBU to send her back to the convent we got her from?

TIA

Captain

oh don't! I think it would all be fine if you would just let loose and join in with the songs.

why did she dress them in rags? Did you even ask?

YANBU, just be careful you don't end up with a houseful of singing nuns!

Also, try to cash in on the singing, people love cutsie kiddies. They could make you a fortune

Hahahaha!

I think you secretly love her and should in fact marry her.

kayano apparently the clothes I provide are not suitable for 'playing' in. Cheeky mare had the nerve to call them straight jackets!!!

Answering back and teaching them songs?? How very dare she! You really can't get the staff these days! :-/

She trashed my perfectly suitable curtains (made put of very fetching material <natch>) to make these lederhosen!

Yes send her back, get your new girlfriend to sing to them instead.

Sack her. she has also been receiving brown paper packages tied up with string while you were out.

I went from wtf?? To ohhhh in 20 seconds.

Stop being so uptight and have fun with your children you never know what the future holds.

Climb every mountain, that'll sort her out.

Sounds like someone has a little crush......

hopenglory Mon 31-Dec-12 16:41:48

Ah go on, I'm sure she's actually one of your favourite things

HazelnutinCaramel Mon 31-Dec-12 16:41:49

YANBU. Perhaps she has designs on you aswell?

manicbmc Mon 31-Dec-12 16:42:14

I suggest you send her packing then reconcile, take part in a singing competition and then flee from the Nazis... but that's just my opinion.

Haha. I took me most of this thread for your post to register.

Maybe it I had read the final word I would have figured it out sooner.

I bet the hills are alive where you live, you just haven't embraced the fully yet.

<holds out hand for you to hold>

Make her some jam and bread. I've heard she's partial.

Dear Mumsnet, how do you solve a problem like my nanny?

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 31-Dec-12 17:31:20

leave the cow...

StanleyLambchop Mon 31-Dec-12 17:32:13

The clothes were made from curtains, not rags. To be fair she did ask you for some material to make them play clothes, but you refused, you grumpy old bugger. Apparently your children don't play, they march!!!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Mon 31-Dec-12 17:33:15

but she has got that really silly hairdo.

send her packing for that alone...
