Nanny in NYC

A modern day Mary Poppins

Oh Britney!

Here is my favorite Defamer quote from last week, and possibly all time: "Having determined that it would be impractical to fire herself as mother . . . Britney Spears decided to dismiss the baby's nanny." No one likes to lose their job, sure, but I'm hoping that Ms. Spears' nanny knows how much of a blessing (not even in disguise) this is for her.

Now, of course, there is no way to know truth from fiction here, but clearly the child fell and clearly Britney, as a first time mother, was upset about it. Is there really a fractured skull involved? I highly doubt it. Kid's heads are pretty tough, I know this from incredibly personal experience. All the buzz since the incident has been about professional baby-proofers, doctors, and specialists that have been hired to consult on little Sean Preston's security, and from this buzz we've gotten some pretty hilarious (if also dubious) quotes, such as:
The doctor advised her not to leave Preston on any high surfaces where he could roll off," an insider told the ITW, which also reports that Spears was so impressed with the sage advice that she wanted to hire the doctor full time, but he told her that it wasn't necessary.
But somehow, under all of this, there is so much going on that is not funny.

So, I want to personally wish the next Spears/Federline nanny good luck. She's got to not only protect the babe from gravity but also its parents. It's a tough job. I wouldn't do it.
