    24 Things Every Nanny Knows To Be True

    Raising someone else's kid is no joke. #nannylife.

    1. Your ability to sneak broccoli into bites of macaroni and cheese without detection is something you're so proud of, you've considered putting it on your resume.

    2. There is no such thing as privacy.

    But you will consider almost anything to get some.

    3. If it didn't air on Nick Jr. or the Disney Channel, you didn't see it.

    But you're not even mad about it.

    4. Not catering to a child's favorite color whenever possible could be a fatal mistake.



    5. Bringing the kids to the pool in the summer is purely for the benefit of your tan.
