Nanny Diaries

I just found out the movie based on the book Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus is coming out in a few short weeks. You can bet I will be at the theater to catch this one.  The authors of the book wrote a fictional story based on their experiences as nannies in NY city.  Although it is fiction it is extremely close to the truth. How do I know this?  I was a nanny in NY city.  When I read this book I laughed and commiserated with the character. Been there, done that!  I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in what it is like to be a nanny for the rich in NYC. If you read it you will know almost exactly what my life was like for a whole year.  (Warning: the language in the book is for adults only and is a bit vulgar. If you are sensitive to this then don’t read it.)  The experience taught me that even if I could afford it, I would never have a nanny.
