I Know It's What You've All Been Waiting For

Here it is: the Official Nanny Photo. I was going for cute, but not too cute. I think my hair is a bit...fluffy. Still, I'm happy with the result, and hopefully I look like the kind of girl any parent would want to help raise their children, fluffy hair and all.

Forgive me for not knowing, but why are you looking for a new job?

I think you can only nanny kids for so long. :-)

The pic looks peppy but professional; nice job.

Our prayers are with you.

A terrific photo! I'd hire you, but alas I have no kids or no money for a nanny.

that photo is perfect. you are so hired. it's not really too fluffy either. even if they are extremely style-conscious New Yorkers they will say, "Oh, look at her fluffy midwestern hair... how quaint! We just have to have her."

I too think that is a perfect picture...as James said "peppy but professional". The autumnal colors add to the warm glow about you. You look like a really smart and an "I know what your kids need" type of Nanny. Well done Mary.

Lydia, it's not so much looking for a new job as it is realizing that there are some fantastic opportunities out there, and now is a good time for me to pursue something new. I blame Rachel; she's the one that forwarded me the ad from Craigslist.

James, Todd, Mark, and Steve, I'm glad you think the photo is good. Hopefully all the best families will like it, too, and the not-so-great families will hate the quaintness of my fluffy Midwestern do.
