Every day, my Mom would tell me that she would be entrusting me to a yaya who I know the intelligence is lower than mine. She would flatter scolding me just to be with a nanny all day long or a week. I hate being scolded by my Mom especially on puzzling circumstances like this. After she left the house, I’m sure what that nasty nanny would do first, cut off his toenails while chewing bubble gum in the coach, forgetting that she was paid to guide for me and not to cure her poor toenails. But wait a minute, what she’s doing right now? I wander as I sneak up to her from my hiding place under the table just before our living room as she open her hand bag and place her arms within, trying to get something unimportant. Hmm, I bet she would get the cutie-cutie books she would always read to kids lower than my age. I was wrong when she put out some baseball cards with my favorite baseball player in it, and look! She also had the baseball No. 1 cap which was sold out now in stores! I never had those since I started watching live baseball games. She had my most favorites but I still hate her! As she put off the baseball cards and that baseball cap she’s wearing on her head and continued doing something inside her bag, she had noticed me murmuring from my hiding place. She calls me by my name. Oh no! She would like me to read with her those cutie-cutie books she would get for me! I hate those, and actually I’m an older brother now and I can also take care of myself. I scampered around our house and slit inside the kitchen at the back of our home. I can still hear her soft whispers from the book she’s reading which she had got out from her bag. It was all about baseball. After the long reading, she had put down the book and switch on the television. What the hell she’s doing? Does she know what she got to do before my Mom would arrive from her job? What a horrible nanny I ever had in my life! I heard the ‘click’ sound from the remote control. I carefully look closer from what she’s doing. She had turned the channel in a live baseball game. Oh my! Is that the FOX WRB channel that was still broken lately? I ran in front of the television in delight. I started to like her when she had got my attention when she begins to act like she like baseball very much. Well, she really does. We both does. I began to like her more when she also idolizes my No. 1 American baseball player Jude Scunton. She let me seat beside her in the couch after we watched the game. She’s good after all than other nannies who just guide some kids effortless for money. We both red the baseball books she had brought. After a long time with her, my Mom finally arrived from her office exhausted. I ran toward her to comfort her with kisses in her forehead. “So, how’s your stay with your new nanny?,” asked my Mom. “Nannies are nice at all. Mom, can my nanny stay here in our home for just a few days and guess what, we had a good time each other lately.” I answered. My Mom was shocked in my answer. “I thought you hate nannies?” My Mom asked me in surprise. “No, not at all. After I met my new nanny, it was all fine. Just fine .” I turned back to my nanny, and asked her if she agrees to stay here at home. She just nodded indicating conformity. “You’ve got my promise.”
