I am an employer of a nanny and I am really scared to think she could talk about me that way

IS she allowed to tell those things? It's not minbe but I would be really upset if I discover one day that a nanny reveal things I've said or done on internet

it happens!!

Has it been pulled? I got a "missing" notice.

(But I don't think my French would be up to it anyway. grin)

I thought it was very funny, (the link is still there, just need to edit out/remove a couple of inadvertant gaps/spaces), and she did it without giving any names/too much info, so where's the harm in it?

OldLadyKnowsNothing Tue 04-Jan-11 21:46:06

Ah, thanks, got it now, and I'm right, my French isn't up to it. blush

You need to get your nanny to sign a confidentiality agreement.

However, google translator gave me a fair idea. Looks like a fairly standard anonymous moan about work, aren't nannies allowed to do that, then?

So are you MrsW? grin

grin The mothers sound worse than the fathers but it's all harmless and there's no way of identifying employers.

I liked the one about the mother who wanted to pass the baby through the window at nursery as it was quicker.

That's hilarious!!!

Who posts a link to a French website? Is MN really that middle class?

Or are you just trying to get traffic for your blog OP?

BTW, welcome to Mumsnet smile

gallicgirl Tue 04-Jan-11 22:02:13

Why is speaking more than one language middle class?

lifeinagoldfishbowl Tue 04-Jan-11 22:03:43

And how is she your nanny yet works in a nursery?

backwardpossom Tue 04-Jan-11 22:05:46

I speak 3 (plus a little French) and am about as far from middle class as it gets.

Anyway:

I'm not sure why this one is a sign of bad parenting:
*Mr Z, qui arrive juste à la fermeture de la crèche tout pile "je voulais profiter de mon jour de congé jusqu'à la dernière seconde"

Roughly translated (I think) as "Mr Z, who arrives just as the nursery is closing, says, "I wanted to enjoy every last second of my day off""

Brilliant. What's your problem with it? (unless you're one of these terrible parents)

MrsSchadenfreude Tue 04-Jan-11 22:12:47

I loved it!

tethersend Tue 04-Jan-11 22:15:02

It was tongue in cheek- In Britain, speaking French is more prevalent amongst the middle classes.

I didn't say speaking more than one language was middle class. I said assuming everyone on MN speaks French/speaking French was middle class. Unless you were just making the OP up in order to generate traffic for your blog, of course.

PDR Tue 04-Jan-11 22:20:12

Very funny! Can't see the problem really

Hassled Tue 04-Jan-11 22:23:32

I only clicked to find out what "chocked" meant. I'm none the wiser. Is it Australian <throws another language into the mix>?

LoopyLoopsOfSparklyFairyLights Tue 04-Jan-11 22:24:55

I'm assuming the OP is French (perhaps middle class too, she does employ a nanny) and therefore not so great at spelling in English.

tethersend Tue 04-Jan-11 22:30:27

Oh yes, I think she's French. I think she wrote the blog. In French. She is the nanny.

LoopyLoopsOfSparklyFairyLights Tue 04-Jan-11 22:37:13

Wouldn't she have bothered to figure out how to link properly in that case?

OldLadyKnowsNothing Tue 04-Jan-11 22:40:33

Hassled, I think "chocked" = "shocked". shock

tethersend Tue 04-Jan-11 22:42:20

I doubt it.
