The Secret to a Successful Nanny--Ch. 8

Chapter 8

           It took a week or so before I started to feel truly comfortable in the house with Tom and Rhett. My employer seemed to get up with the sun, although I never heard an alarm or anything coming from his room. It seemed he had his own kind of internal clock that awoke him every morning. I could hear the gentle creaks of his footsteps in the hallway as he went downstairs and the soft opening and shutting of the front door as he went out. For the first few days, I wondered where he went.

           One morning, about a week after I’d moved in, I got up at my usual time to clean up before I went downstairs. I might be living at the house and have my uniform clause waived in my contract, but that didn’t mean I was going to walk around looking like a ragamuffin. The primping didn’t take long, but I at least washed my face, brushed my teeth and put my hair up. After I got myself together, I went downstairs, the baby monitor with me, and went to the kitchen to make breakfast. Sometimes Rhett let me have breakfast in peace, other times he would wake halfway through and I’d have to go upstairs to get him.

           I was lucky that morning. I made eggie-in-a-basket and sausages and sat down at the breakfast nook to eat in peace. My seat looked out over the back garden, and I couldn’t help but think of all the things I wanted to do out there. Rhett would probably enjoy just getting dirty even if he didn’t plant a single thing. I was almost halfway through my breakfast when the door opened quietly and Tom slipped inside.

From an ask on another blog, "Briana is unfollowing her fans on Instagram because she says other fan pages were getting upset and she can't follow them all" - hmm! I wonder if 1dhq is unfollowing actual "fans" from B's account? Fits your theory about getting fans to detach. Of course - the obvious question is why not just obliterate her SM once the stunt is wrapped up, so who knows? And that PO box is a head-scratcher in this context too. To get some last minute freebies?? Why wait until now?

I think 1DHQ is trying to turn off the stans. The unfollowing, the idleness, the jealousy and single white femaling of Danielle, the unfair demands and conditions she puts on Louis, the general ignoring of Frederico, the free spending of money she hasn’t earned because she doesn’t work, the incompetent sycophantic nanny, the begging for attention and gifts with the P.O. Box and more cosmetic procedures–all of that is meant to repulse people.

But just as I suspected, the type of fans that stan Brianti are gonna need more to turn them off. They’re a bit…wait for it…deluded. So 1DHQ is gonna need to go bigger to shake them out of fantasy mode. Are they gonna drop that sex tape? You know she got one. It features an old face, but that’s her. The old face is key to the not-the-father timeline anyway. The only thing I’d hate about that is that a lot of underage kids would see it. And the kids in this fandom have been abused enough.

So maybe an alternative to that is for her to be “caught on tape” trash talking Louis, Danielle and the fandom. That might do it. At any rate, level up and get on with this shit.

❝North! If you let go of my hand one more time I promise we’re going right back to the hotel room!❞ Squinting her eyes Noel regained her daughters hand, and continued to walk down the sandy path to the beach. Even though it was a vacation she didn’t dare leave her with her nanny this time. Finally making it to their destination, after getting ice cream, Noel let North play in the water as she sat close by.
Oh here we go again.

Head nanny shared this. Why is BC making it sound like meeting the fans in the line was his idea? With an official Marvel photographer in tow? Honey, please! I’m more likely to believe SH is an avant-garde playwright, opera director extraordinaire. She has the logo for it.

The most messed up phone call

I had the most messed up call with my mum which has literally been ringing through my head for the last 24hours and made me go what the actual heck. 
(This conversation was partly due to having to let her know about the money situation in regards to some other things, as well as being in trouble from my grandparents) 

Me:  So it is fine i am financially fine I have gotten a new job nannying 
Her: What do you have to do ?
Me: look after the kids , make their dinner , bathe them do their washing
Her: Do you think you can manage folding the washing
Me: Yes i can fold washing
Her: Can you really make their dinner
Me: I am capable I already cook dinner for the other family 
Her: Well you have to make sure you do it their way
Her: What do you plan on doing next year
Me: I will either become a full time nanny or apply for agency X (this agency takes students as support workers and would look fantastic on my resume for PhD and Masters , I’m applying to everything ) (Agency X deals with adolescents who self harm , teen pregnancy and also eating disorders however the people are not allowed to actively be engaging in eating disorder behaviours nor can they be underweight ) 
Her: Do you think you could handle that , Won’t that trigger you
Me: No eating disorders do not trigger me (which is the honest truth, my heart feels sad for them and i feel compassion and can empathise with them but do not feel triggered or upset by my own appearance in contrast, my only trigger these days for my eating disorder is her)
Her: You use to get triggered by them
Me: Yes but my eating disorder no longer impacts me , it is almost non existent , Heck i just ate a bowl of pasta with no guilt (I’m impressed by this i havent eaten pasta in 5 years and first time doing it i had no guilt )
Her:   Are you still going to the gym (She has always seen going to the gym as a way to lose weight and her beliefs of the gym do not align with my beliefs of the gym)
Me: Yes I still go to the gym
Her: starts to talk about the gym followed by an old illness of hers
Me: *THINKING* is there a mute button on my phone where i can mute her ? 

All i can think is no matter what i do i will be wrong , i could get two PhD and it still would not be good enough , i could win the nobel prize and i would still be the fucked up (yes she has directly told me i am this) anorexic child 

anonymous asked:

Can someone direct me to the plays she has written? Enquiring minds need to know!


And just sayin’ - because I know some nannies will bring it up - yeah, she might have a completed-but-unproduced play hidden away somewhere. Stephen Hawking might have one too, in a drawer. Does that make Stephen Hawking a playwright? I don’t think so.

@springlullaby tagged me to stop drop and selfie and ya’ll know I have no problem taking selfies.

- what song(s) have you been obsessed with lately?  There’s A Girl - Trent Harmon, If You Ever Wanna Be In Love - James Bay, Altar (Live) - SEU Worship, and Spirit Move (Live) - Bethel Music

- what’s been the best part of your summer so far? any plans you’re looking forward to for the remainder of the summer? The best part of my Summer has been having so much time while nannying to spend with the Lord. I’m watching older kids who don’t need my attention every second so I’ve had time to really seek His face and it’s been a blessing. I am looking forward to the third week of August because I’m going to the beach and it’s been 5 years since I’ve last felt sand between my toes.    

- what’s your biggest irrational fear? I wouldn’t say it’s irrational but I’m little girl scared of crossing the street even though I’m an adult.

My mom has been seeing this guy for a few months. She recently left my father after he beat her nearly to death. But she just found out this guy is married to a woman that used to take care of his kids(his nanny), and he married her so she wouldn't be deported when her visa went out. My mom has no idea what to do or what to even think about the situation.Although the man says he doesn't love his wife and he only did it so she could keep her freedom,now he wants to leave her for my mom. Opinions?

I can’t be of any help. Those are grown ups and I guess I am too? But that shit was like something from a tv show and Idk how to deal with it.

Monday Make Out

The door barely made a clicking noise as Chris was trying to be as quiet as he possibly could while getting inside his own house. He knew how it was during nap time, and it was 11:30 in the morning, Jackson was probably zoned out in his crib and he better not disturb or the poor boy would probably be cranky for the rest of the day. He loosened the tie on his neck and also popped the first button of his dress shirt, he hated wearing fancy suits for his meetings but this was a corporation and he better suit up for it. It was a good chance of another, fancier and expensive project of his and he was sure he was going to make it happen, sooner or later he would have the CEO convinced that he needed a new building looking as fantastic as he imagined it to be.

He went straight to Jackson’s room, figuring out that maybe that’s where the nanny was, but there was a frown on his face as he stepped on the doorway and there was no one there besides the sleeping baby boy, the sound of him sucking on his pacifier that he was now too old to use, yet he couldn’t manage to take it away. “Rosalie?” He asked as he poked his head in every room, waited two seconds and then left. Damn, it was silent in the house and it felt strange. He had almost forgotten how it was when he stayed home between dropping and picking up Annie at school, but that’s probably because he used that time and worked from home. 

Christopher went to the kitchen, making himself a well needed cup of coffee as he gave up on looking for Rosalie, but then he could hear a noise coming from not too far away. The washing machine, of course. He poked his head in the laundry room, a goofy smile on his face. “There you are, I basically raided the house looking for you.” He smirked, “I’m home, by the way. Until lunch, that is. Do you want coffee?”
