If I were hiring Mary Poppins today, there are a few extra tricks I’d want her to have up her sleeves, or hidden in that magic bag of hers.
Who hasn’t dreamed of a super nanny descending from above, bringing peace and order into their home?
I’m not sure who needs her more, me or the kids. There is a reason they call this place Casa de Chaos!
But I have to ask myself if all of Mary’s skills are still relevant. Shouldn’t she be brushing up on her skills, and picking up some new ones for the 21st century?
I asked my friends and my kids to give me their job requirements for a modern day dream Mary Poppins, and I started (literally) drawing up a list. What I ended up with is the job description for the nanny of our dreams. Does it match up with your requirements? What would you want from Mary Poppins if she were to drop into your life today?
Did I leave anything out? Leave me a comment with your thoughts!
