Nanny in Kirkland:
"My Nanny Job."
Pros: Helping to bring up a child in this world. Spending time with the child and providing for daily care. Teaching a child a new language, playing with the child inside the house and doing activities outside, such as playing at parks/playgrounds, beaches, activity centers and with friends of the child. Being present all the time; NOT ON THE PHONE, as I see most parents, and nannies preferring to stare at their smartphones instead of paying attention to their child they are supposed to be caring about or for.
Cons: Having home cameras staring at me all day long.
