As a nanny, I am privy to certain pieces of personal information about the families I work for. I know the schedule of their days. I know how organized (or not) their houses are. I know what they have in their closets. I know what they feed their families. I know who calls, and I often receive personal messages. I know what is written on their calendars.
I have worked for a couple "influential" Pittsburgh couples. I have always been careful not to divulge any of their personal information to anyone. Sometimes, though, I get information that just HAS to be shared with someone. Often, the most personal, and juicy, information I get about the family comes right out of the kids' mouths.
Today, the youngest of the two girls I'm a nanny for, and I were sitting having lunch. Suddenly she looked at me quite seriously, and said,
"Yes?", I asked.
"My mom's butt jiggles when she walks... You know, when she's naked?"
(Blink. Blink.) "Well, gee, I'm so glad to know that! I'm sure your mom would be thrilled that you shared that piece of information with me". I sat there wondering what her mom would say if I told her she shared that lovely little fact with me. Then, I had another thought. I wonder what Dylan is telling Mi-Mi and Bubba (my parents) while I'm at work? I wonder what juicy bits of info they are getting?
(Hey Mom and Dad! If you're wondering if my butt jiggles when I walk, you know, when I'm naked, just ask Dylan and I'm sure he'll tell you. Or, you could ask Jim! As a matter of fact... I dare you).
