"She Said What?!- Preschool 'Mama' Drama"



Everyday for the last 2 weeks or so, as I am leaving E's school, I see a very scantaily clad young woman dropping 2 kids off. 

I found out yesterday from another mom that she is a nanny, thats all fine & well, I don't have anything against nanny's, they work hard, but seriously, I wear more to the beach than she wears to drop these kids off. 

Well... today, she was there earlier than normal, E saw her & very loudly said "Mama why can I see that lady's bottom? I hurried her into her classroom, as everyone in the lobby is looking at us. 

Her class, the other 3s class and the VPKs were outside; Guess who comes strolling out with one of the kids? Slutty Nanny.

E notices her and says "Mama I can see her bottom", now pointing at her, I told her to go play pushed her along. 

I was so embarrassed, but I mean, kid speaks the truth. Her skirt was unnaturally short & yes you could see some butt, esp. if you're only 3 feet tall.

I signed E in and hurried along my way.

As I was walking to my car, I heard someone swiftly walking in my direction, as I turn around, I am face-to-face with said nanny. Before I could say anything, she said "You know you should proabaly teach your kid some manners." I was Livid, I was already in an "off" mood b/c we have a pretty bad leak at the house and we're pretty sure its in the foundation of our home (more on this later) & that comment was like poking the fire. I said "Well maybe you shouldn't dress like a hooker to drop your nanny kids off."  I shocked myself beyond belief. 

She slightly gasped and flicked me off and turned to walk away, I replied "Classy, like your outfit." I turned and got into my car. 

I sat in my car shocked for a few minutes, I could not believe I said that. That is shit I think in my head, I never have said anything like that aloud before.

On my way back to my leaky abode, I called the director at E's school to let her know that we exchanged words in the parking lot. The last thing I want is E to be kicked out of her wonderful new school b/c I had words with the slutty nanny.

The director, D, told me that they have already contacted the parents of the children and let them know that their nanny needs to dress more conservatively when at the school or they will have to ask them to find a new school.

I was pleased with this answer, E attends a private pre-school and we pay enough that I or my child should not have to see/ deal with class-LESS people like herself. 

Don't get me wrong, she could be the nicest person in the world, but I think if you are going to be around children you need to cover yourself up. That is just inappropriate.

I think we will start getting to school 5 minutes early or 10 minutes late?! Avoidance is now key. Haha.

** Now its YOUR turn... What is the worst thing you have seen dropping your kids/nieces/nephews/Nanny kids off at school?**

OMG! I LOVED this. I am SO glad that you were in an "off" mood!! That was AWESOME. I always think those things in my head too, but never say them outloud, good for you! If she had the nerve to talk to you about the comment your beautiful, innocent child said about her inappropriate outfit choice...she deserved to be put in her place! E was just saying what everyone else was thinking! On FB today my status was that something GOOD was going to happen...reading this was that something good...lol!

Since Alyssa goes to a "navy" daycare I see lots of moms dropping there kids off in pj's, no bra. Its defiantly NOT attractive. I am so happy you spoke up for yourself, and put her back in her place. She obviously doesn't hold herself up to any standard dressing like that around children, and what kind of nanny is she if she doesn't understand that kids say how they feel, they have no filter.

Just found your blog off the Top 25 Single Parenting blah, blah, blah. Anyway, your post was great! I especially love the label, "slutty".

I probably would've come unglued if slutty nanny had approached me. She knows she's dressing slutty. Puhleease. I would've whipped my turtle neck or cardigan at her and ran.
