What’s it really like to have a live-in nanny? If I had a dollar for every time I was asked this question, I’d probably have enough money to pay for my au pair. Seriously. Because it’s not just this question, but a million other questions that spin off from the fear that having a live-in childcare provider will be… well, kind of weird. Awkward. But believe me when I tell you that having a live-in nanny is not awkward. In fact it’s pretty awesome.
