Did you guys read the article “The Best Nanny Money Can Buy” in the NY Times Sunday Magazine last week? Being a former nanny of a zillion years, plus a huge fan of illustrator Jillian Tamaki, who illustrated the piece, I was intrigued to say the least.
Turns out these nannies were way outta my league:
A nanny can increase her marketability if she can help manage an art collection, draft correspondence, wash and fold 50 linens a day and help set up philanthropic events. Bonus points if she can do it all in Mandarin.
I suppose I could figure out how to do all of those things, but almost definitely not in Mandarin.
Isn’t that illustration great? (Remember when I illustrated nannies for Time Out magazine?)
Happy weekend everybody!
PS. Oh yes, this is happening tomorrow. Do you ever participate? I’m usually not up for grand symbolic gestures that ultimately feel a bit empty (–and have large corporate sponsors.) But the thought of everything going dark is just so wonderful…
