Actor Ethan Hawke welcomed a baby girl into the world July 18th, according to his representative. Hawke and his wife, former nanny (to his kids with Uma Thurman) Ryan Shawhughes, are proud parents to Clementine Jane Hawke. Clementine is the first...

JLo and the nanny question

Four months after giving birth to twins, Jennifer Lopez looks fabulous. We know she looks fabulous because she has been photographed plenty since the twins were born in February. She and hubby Marc have been spotted at movie premieres, art galleries,...

The pre-school nanny dilemma

Down the bottom of the hill from our house, there's a whitewashed pre-school a with a cheery red roof, converted decades ago from a community church. It's called My L'il Pre-school, and besides my irritation by the fact that they omit the "ittle"...

Women caught on nanny cam arrested

When I watched this video last night, it gave me the chills. Though the babies aren't technically being "harmed", the general lack of empathy and concern coming from this nanny turned me cold. It's hard to see in the first shot, but that's a baby she...

Jude Law is happy he was caught with the nanny

Poor Jude Law. Having to carry around all that guilt and fear of discovery when having an affair is tough to handle. Fortunately for him, he was caught sleeping with his children's nanny while engaged to actress Sienna Miller. Even better, his...

Angelina Jolie looks pregnant

Brad Pitt recently admitted that he is ready to add another child to the Jolie-Pitt family and some are speculating that the process has begun. Not the adoption process, but the biological one. A slight curve in Angelina Jolie's belly is clear enough...

Charlie Sheen still slinging the mud

Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards will not win any prizes for negotiating a civil divorce. It's been messy from the beginning, with Denise dumping Charlie while pregnant with their child. I don't know that it was ever determined just what brought...

Nude nanny a no-no

It's an age-old question that has finally been answered. If the babysitter takes her clothes off in the woods and the kids aren't around to see it, will she get arrested for child endangerment? The answer is yes. 20-year old Michelle Rendino found...

Invasion of the nanny snatchers

The title of this Globe and Mail article got my attention. (Mostly because I'm a very immature 33-year-old who giggles at the sight or mention of the word "snatch") I had seen nanny snatching happen on Desperate Housewives. And I've often thought...

NannyCams: do you tell?

Over the past few years, Rachel and I have frequently talked about hiring a nanny to watch the kids. Never mind, for the moment, that we can't really afford it. Currently, my sister-in-law and mother-in-law watch the kids during the day, but my MIL,...

Could you be the ultimate nanny?

It's a tough choice for parents -- should you put your child in daycare, or not? For many people, it isn't a choice at all, as financial obligations require both parents to work. That doesn't stop people like me from worrying that I'm "outsourcing"...

Racist people suck

Gawker recently re-posted an NYC Craigslist ad in search of a nanny. The original was flagged by Craigslist users and pulled, but, just in case you missed it, here's the text in it's entirety: We're a Jewish family located in Manhattan, the SoHo...

Blogging Baby Sleepover for Sunday, October 29

You know, it occurs to me that if we got a second set of garbage cans, I'd only have to deal with them every other week. I'm not sure the neighbors (or Rachel, for that matter) would go for it though. Wouldn't bother me, though, since I mostly have...

Meet the Nanny

We've looked into to hiring a nanny in the past, but the convenience, low cost, and familial benefits of having my mother-in-law and sister-in-law take care of the kids have so far won out. If something changes, however, and either of them can no...

How does money affect your family planning?

I did a post earlier today about Jennifer Garner. She has decided to spend some time being a fulltime mother. And inexplicably, I was jealous. I mean, I am happy for her. And I have had three children, and I got to be a fulltime mother to all of them...
