So the next contest on our site has ended - the Mary Popins Stories Contest! Today we are summing up!
We received letters from mothers who have a nanny and who do not have one, from their husbands who believe that they do not need a nanny, from the nannies themselves who talk about their work!
We selected 5 stories.
History 1. Dad is a mustached nanny.
Excerpt: - So it means: you must enter the elevator first, then roll in the stroller. Get out of the staircase first too. Crossing the street, remember: due to the stroller, you “lengthened” by 1.5 meters, so calculate the distance from the riding car not to yourself, but to the stroller ... Do not walk under the walls of houses - suddenly someone “fools” something quit ...
At first I laughed at an unexpected lecture, said: “You look like a safety instructor,” but I suddenly realized that a Loving father was talking to me, having gone through all the problems that I had just entered
Excerpt: Here I noticed that on Matthew’s jacket (which he wears after Timosha) there is no big beautiful sticker-picture on the chest and on the back of the lining (where the loop) is also not such a picture.

Story 3. Mary Poppins flew away with money
Excerpt: The child got used to the nanny, fell in love with her. My wife and I had no complaints against her either. Everything was fine. True, after 2 months the nanny disappeared at our place and with her - 4 thousand dollars. We didn’t hire any more babysitters. We already have 2 daughters, one 4 years, the other will be 7.
My wife and I decided to tell the children nothing. Little almost every evening asks to put on a movie about Mary Popins. This is her holiday, and we do not deprive her of it.

History 5. A lucky find!
Excerpt: Lida is the only person with whom I can leave my child. We agreed that she would be out on Monday, and I would ask my mother-in-law to stay with them for the first couple of days.
A year and a half has passed. You know, I’m very lucky! Lida has become practically a member of our family. We have already passed the flu, the summer cottage, and the ups and downs together. She always helps and supports us. Well, in turn, we also help her in every way. And I could not think that I would find a nanny via the Internet!
