I could really go off on this.
Au pairs. Ha. It's a rotten idea that just keeps on coming because
IDIOTS think they can spot that little Mary Poppins. Even Mary Poppins
wasn't Mary Poppins.
I've seen au pairs, and the trouble with au pairs is the CLIENTS.
People think that just because they pay someone to LOVE their children
that they will, indeed, love their children. I automatically distrust
ANYONE who claims to "love children." What they mean is that they
haven't spent enough time with children to see them as anything other
than CUTE. You want to leave your children with somebody who is going
to be prepared for nothing but cute? HA!
The au pairs are paid to "care for" the children, which is a cultural
determination. Jamaican nannies don't give a shit about anything
except that their charges look good, follow commands and don't climb
anything or try anything even slightly dangerous. We used to spend a
lot of mornings in the park with the Jamaican nannies, and their kids
stayed on the ground and clung to their legs. There was no hugging or
praise. For that you pay extra. For that you STAY HOME. Or you get
someone from Loas and tell yourself it's close enough. Or you enslave
a grandmother and try to pretend you aren't imposing on her golden
But to get a teenaged au pair? Did somebody think that was a GOOD
idea? That's a gaspingly bad sort of logic: I'll wait until I'm mature
and THEN have a family so that I can afford to hire a teenager to do
the work when I'm not around.
Why not just have the baby when you're a teenager and kill it
