    More important, she would never call herself a "nanny." In her eyes, that's for Mary Poppins. And none of her AA friends would ever have called themselves a nanny, either.

    Getting paid and treated fairly was more important in my eyes than what she was called.

      was more important than what she was called.

      If she wasn't full time, then perhaps she was more of a babysitter in what she was actually doing ?

      Interesting that she didn't call herself a nanny and none of her African American friends did either. I wonder if it was a difference in what they were doing, or a difference in passed down terminology ?

                      Thanks for the reply :)
