Please forward this error screen to 208. Blatant Parenting Mistakes No Mom or Dad Should Ever Make, have I seen it all now!
If you follow Happily Eva After, you know that I am a full-time Blogger who works around the clock running this startup business, and that my husband works for NBC Sports and is almost always on the road for work. Full time childcare is a necessity for our family, and one which had gotten a bit shaky recently when I had to fire our Nanny of a year and a half on the spot. On Tuesday of this past week, I was on a plane coming back from quick 24-hour business trip to New York City. I had just been feeling so exhilarated by my little jaunt away from my Mommy responsibilities and totally re-energized to start the week off strong. Kyle was at home with Marlowe, and our Nanny was working her usual daytime hours.
A Visit to the Boston Children’s Museum
When I landed at 10am, I called Kyle to let him know I arrived safely and hear about how Marlowe’s morning had been so far. She knew that I was arriving home on Tuesday but didn’t know what time. An hour before she was supposed to arrive for the day, Kyle got a text message from her show up on his cell phone. Girl, did I mention to you how hot and sex my Boss is.
I would love to fuck his brains out ha haah. Too bad he seems not to like thick Latin women with lots to hold on to LOL. Why had she sent this to him? A part of him thought it was so hilarious of course, but the greater part of him was head-in-hands embarrassed for her and couldn’t believe he was going to have to deal with the awkwardness of having to talk about something so uncomfortable. He let himself in to the house, handed over the baby, and she made absolutely no mention of the text at all. He pointed out Marlowe’s snacks and lunch, and he rushed out to his 9:30am meeting. While he was at the meeting, however, he just didn’t feel right.
AND THIS IS WHY MY HUSBAND IS A LEGEND: He also realized in that moment that he was going to record his entire confrontation with her. I have ever passed around a kitchen table. Kyle arrives home before the Nanny. She is out on a walk. I actually wanted to ask you about something. Kyle: When I came home earlier, why were you in our bedroom?
Nanny: I was looking for you. By the way, if you have ever been to our home, there is ZERO reason for anyone except us to be going to our bedroom for any reason. Probable Truth: she was in there smelling his underwear. I want in the house with you taking care of our daughter.
So I’m going to have to ask you to go. I can pay you for today and then why don’t you go. Nanny: I’m sorry I was just messing around with a friend I didn’t mean any harm. So, at this point, by head was spinning. Clearly, that text was not a mistake.
That text was sent out as a missive to test the proverbial waters with my husband and give her an opportunity later, when alone, to bring up a sexy dialogue with him. She sent it the only morning she had that his wife was out of town. I going to do with zero help and a business to run? Kyle and I put our heads together and came up with a plan.
And I was so grateful in that moment for the opportunity for teamwork, because it reminded me that no pathetic and conniving woman can ever come between us. And this is what we hatched up: We were going to go on Kyle’s trip together. We would pack up a bunch of stuff, ship out even more, and spend some time on the East Coast where he works. He could help me with Marlowe on his days off, and our families and close friends in the area could help, too.
Marlowe and make sure I was really comfortable after this crazy past month. So here we are: in Westchester. I’m looking forward to bringing you Happily Eva After from here for a while! This whole situation must have been an out of body experience! That being said, I absolutely ADORE how honest you are with every aspect of your life and seriously, you need to write a book! Your writing is always gripping, hilarious and interesting, no matter the topic.

I truly hope that the next person you find respects you both, and is the best Nanny in the world for your sake and Lowie’s! What a WONDERFUL husband you have. I’m so sorry for this situation. And THANKS SO MUCH for sharing your story! There are PREDITORS out there who prey on happily married normal people. After reading these blogs I realize not only is the nanny a whack job but some of these repliers are also.
So gross- some things people are saying. And the 3-some girl, who’s gonna have 1 with your fiancée? Totally agree that this woman broke every code here, without a doubt. You both handled this situation in an amazingly appropriate way! Good for your amazing husband and your obviously solid relationsip. You and yours are indeed blessed! PS: big fan of your mama and all the amazing roles she has played over the years.

Beauty indeed runs in the family, as does strength of character. WHEREVER that offered to help watch your kids while you go to the doctor or a full time nanny. Whoever said that Eva deserved it and should try a threesome and that she is overeacting is a pig. They have probabley never been faithful to their partners and think this is ok. Kudos to Kyle for the way he handled it.
Child poverty drops in California, but is still the nation’s highest
I wish all husbands would handle the situation like that. Sounds like he is a keeper of a husband. I agree with the caution in choosing another care taker for your daughter Eva. It seems like a few people on this reply blog, would like to have this position. Maybe nanny cams in every room. Love your mother’s work as a film star.

God the normal ppl left in the world are getting fewer and farther between. I’m not judging, to each their own. I’m a retired nurse and own Brookside Nannies. We care for families who are vegan or vegetarian or will allow these meals instead of meat. We are be happy to travel to take care of your children. We also make organic hand knitted sweaters and children’s clothes and bedding. Please like our Facebook Page Brookside Nannies.
I hope that the next few months become disgustingly, boringly normal. An unexciting life is something to be treasured. This I have learned from personal experience. Your husband is indeed a LEGEND! What a crazy world we live in. The idea of hiring someone to take care of your child in your absence is a leap of trust and faith.
Happy New Year!
Someone to become Part of the family. To turn that into such a careless and disgusting so called opportunity is horrible. Your husband handled the situation beautifully! I love that his true mission was to protect your daughter and your marriage.
As a babysitter since I was 10 and now a nanny for the last 7ish years I find this absolutely unbelievable! I don’t know much about you all, but I do know what it takes to be a great nanny and I am so glad you got rid of her asap! If I lived near you I would be applying and hoping to get hired as your next nanny. I hope and pray you find someone worth letting into your home! I knew from your snap last night this post was going to be juicy, but this? Thank goodness Kyle was able to handle the situation in a cool and calm manner. Way to take this crazy situation and make the best of it!
I don’t think it’s that big a deal- so she tried to hit on him. Probably because he doesn’t like thick Hispanic women. If he likes the next one, there’s gonna be sexy time happening. Kyle’s rejecting this psycho nanny had nothing to do with her weight or ethnicity. He rejected her because he loves and respects his wife, the extraordinary Ms.
Is that a concept too difficult for you to understand? Your lack of respect for the marriage covenant is just more evidence of advancing cultural rot in the western world. Not everyone cheats because someone is their type or attractive. Awesome reply Harry, couldn’t agree more.
Unfortunately not all men are made the same. May your family always be happy and strong! I agree, there is an advancing cultural rot in this world — such an increasing lack of respect for others and a lack of morals! Do unto others as you would have them do onto you, the world in general would be a better, more respectful place! Those who blame Eva for this nanny gate are probably just like the nanny themselves, not respectful of others, which is why they defend her! Agreed I couldn’t say it any better. What a lack of common respect.
If you’re not religious that’s a perfect word for it. It’s a beautiful feeling to be married and the other person feel this way, about the sanctity of marriage. ALL of my wifes friends hit on me at one time or another, Turned them down flat. I’m not some saint, I just believed that when you are together, you ARE together, no exceptions. Wow, big D, you didn’t cheat on your wife. Especially when ALL of your wife’s chums hit on you. I have never beaten my elderly mother.
Thank you for that comment, Scott! If you choose a monogamous relationship there should be no accolades necessary for avoiding a random sexual encounter. Women are tested just as often. Not saying what he did wasn’t great but rather it’s sad that these situations are so few and far between that we are happily surprised to hear about them. She totally violated the trust of BOTH of her employers.

Honestly, a lack of morality is exactly what NO ONE wants for a nanny who is meant to help and mentor precious child all day! I give props to the husband. We don’t need any more Arnolds or Bens, etc. We need men to be faithful to their wives.
Apparently, the nanny was delusional and thought more of herself than she should have. We do have some sick puppies in this world and the nanny is definitely fitting the bill. It is always an honor to find a man that loves and is devoted to his wife, daughter, and making his marriage work. I’m so sorry this happened to you and your family. I pray you find another nanny that’s honest and trustworthy. I am horrified for you but at least you and Kyle have the best story ever! Good luck finding someone wonderful asap!
Does that mean you’re planning to stay for a while or just until the 10 day trip is over! I feel bad for you for two reasons. One, you are again out of a nanny. On top of that you trust of someone taking care of your kid has been damaged again.
All part of the Nazi agenda to create a master race
Secondly, you bond with Kyle was tested by someone you trusted. I’m glad that y’all are spending some time together. Hopefully it will give you the opportunity to find and research potential nanny options. But, thank you for sharing as it restores my ever-shaken faith in the existence of strong and loyal marriages and especially men. You two make each other better and it’s an inspiration! Woman should be supporting each other, not desperately searching for the opportunity to get with your man.
The worst part is she used your child as a catapult. I am happy to hear she landed right on her face. Props to both your husband and you! This tale is woeful, at more levels than you have verbalized, and which will occur to you over time.
How can you trust your child to someone of this immature crassness? I sympathize with your pull between excellent mothering and your work. This is your former 8th grade teacher, now retired. I am more than willing and very capable to assist with impeccable child care here on the east coast. Let me know if you are interested. You know, maybe what Eva and Kyle need is an older woman who would nurture all 3 of them.
A Grandmotherly type with an education and class who would love nothing more than a surrogate family to cook for and take care of. One who would also have the utmost respect for their employers. A young couple of this station should never have to worry about their baby’s care. They have plenty enough to worry about. I think that having your retired eighth grade teacher watch over your little family is a great idea! That is if you remember her fondly.
