National Nanny Recognition Week is to shine a glorious spotlight on to the fact that we nannies exist and rock at our jobs. What better way than to do that fabulous job, en masse, in public. And so we will! Join a flash mob of nannies and their charges having an outing to a public play area where moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles and completely disinterested strangers can all bask in the awe of the awesomeness of the way that nannies handle such things.
Read below for details on how your region is planning to awesome-bomb in order to gain recognition.
