A nanny, or child care provider, is an individual who provides care for one or more children in a family as a service. Traditionally, nannies were servants in large households and reported directly to the lady of the house. Today, modern nannies, like other domestic workers, may live in or out of the house depending on their circumstances and those of their employers.

Jennifer is a modern nanny. She doesn't like tradition, and doesn't live in the house. She works on "Washington Square", near the "Dallas Buyers Club". Her employer, "Danny Collins" is working at "Pearl Harbor", and left his wife and children, "Juno" and "Arthur" alone at home. Jennifer was hired to help at home. Every morning she came early to make breakfast for the kids. They ate bread with peanut "Butter". On "Mother's Day", she took the children to the "Amusement Park" cause their mother was busy with "The Odd Life of Timothy Green", her secret lover. Once at the "Amusement Park", Juno told Jennifer.

"Catch Me if You Can."

Then she ran and disappeared among the crowd. Jennifer looked for her during hours, before she finally managed to catch her. She could have been kidnapped. "Miracles from Heaven" happen. Jennifer explained her to play this game of hiding only at home. She told her.

"The outside world can be very tough."

Juno understood and never did it again, except at home. On his side, "Arthur" wanted to see "The Tribes of Palos Verdes", an exhibition at the Amusement Park. When they left they had a bad surprise, the car was gone.

"Dude, Where's My Car?"

Asked Jennifer to the parking cleaner. He told her car was impounded due to parking violation. She was told on the loudspeaker to remove her car. But she didn't pay attention; she was too worried and busy looking for June. Anyway, she didn't know by heart her car registration number.

On "Valentine's Day" she wanted to go out on a date with her boyfriend, "Mr. Magoo". But she was told at the last moment she had to work. The children were "Stealing Time" away from her personal life. She wished she had "Nine Lives". This way she would have some spare life to dedicate to herself, instead of working when everybody is out having fun.

Arthur was a Marvel Comics fan, especially "Daredevil" and "Elektra". Sometimes, another kid from the neighborhood called Alexander joined him at home to play with. But once, it got out of hand. Arthur and Alexander got into a violent fight when Jennifer was busy in the bathroom. Everybody recalls this awful day as: "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day". Alexander was wounded as a result of the fight and was taken to hospital. Jennifer who was in charge, was responsible for what happened and had to pay for Alexander's medical fees. As a result she got fired.

Many years later, she decided to have her own kids. If a fight happens, she might be responsible. But she won't get fired cause it's her own children. Why did she get involved with child care in the first place?

"I am the model middle child. I am patient and I like to take care of everyone. Being called nice is a compliment. It's not a boring way to describe me."

It's because she was a model middle child, boring and nice.

When she had her own kids she remembered what told her mother.

"My mom gave me a good piece of advice. She said never marry a man thinking you can change him, and I think that starts from your first date when you're in the seventh grade onwards. Women are fixers so we have to just not fix. Don't fix."

Sure, don't try to fix the car, you'll ruin it.

"My mom has always said that the one thing she wishes she had done differently is have a job. She felt like the single-mindedness made her a little nuts sometimes, and she could have used an outlet for herself when we were little."

Sure, she could have been a nanny, just like her own daughter.

"The rule with marriage is the less you talk about it the better, as far as I can tell."

If there are problems in your marriage, just don't talk about it, ignore them. I mean, solve the problems and move on. Don't talk about the problems all day long.

"After the kids are asleep you ... well, you know. Whatever it is. You slip away for a night."

That's the great thing when you do it with your own kids. If she did that as a nanny she would get fired. A mother cannot fire herself, hopefully.

"So, goodnight Jennifer. What if "Men, Women & Children" were on a "Draft Day"? Then God would have had a second chance to make a final version of Men, Women & Children" to make it perfect."
