As I sit here writing, I still cannot believe my good fortune! I have been reading this blog since it started 18 months ago and wished I had had the sense to start a blog about Nanny life myself, I didn’t someone, else did. So, I was flattered when I received a message from Dijana telling me that she had decided to take a break from the blog and asking me if I would be interested in taking over. “Are…

This post is my goodbye to you all.

The Funny Nanny Diary

As I’m sitting, all alone, in a crowded coffee house on my birthday morning, I’m questioning every decision I ever made that led me to this place. To this day. Why am I alone in a coffee house? Why am I not happy? Where did the years go? Where did the dreams go?   I was almost 24 when in matter of days I decided to sell everything I had and fly across the ocean to follow my dreams. I…

What is This “No Candy for Halloween” Crazy Talk?

Activities & Fun, The Funny Nanny Diary
Halloween CANDY

First of all, what? Apple? Toy? Gluten free bar? Box of raisins?   Before you beat me with your broomstick, let me tell you that I understand. I respect and appreciate all the reasons why we need to be politically correct, understand our differences, know that not everyone says trick or treat (but still goes trick-or-treating), that some of us are allergic, trying to live healthy, trying to be gluten free. Some of us are having specific or not so…

TFN’S DIARY: When You Lose Your Person

The Funny Nanny Diary
Losing a friend The Funny Nanny

It was, I believe, 1999. I was almost 12 year old and I was one of those obnoxious kids. You know those preteens you just wish to smack in the face and you pray you will never have kids like that? Yup. That’s me. One of the neighbors said new girl moved to our neighborhood and I should show her around. I remember walking up the hill to my home and I saw her. She had straight dirty blonde hair, pink…

TFN’S Diary: Last Words To My Ex Nanny Family

Nanny Problems, The Funny Nanny Diary
Dear Nanny Family, Let's Break Up

Dear Nanny Family, I hate you.   After reading this first sentence, you might find me immature and turn your back, ignore what I’m saying, but stick with me for little bit. The reason why hating you is a big deal is because I am not a hater. I am not one of those easily upset, grudge holding, pissed girly that will walk around and talk trash about people (well, this is exception). I do hate you because you are…

TFN’S Diary: I have a goal! (I think)

The Funny Nanny Diary
Do What You Love The Funny Nanny #nanny

Happy weekend everyone! This diary writing is proven to be pretty hard for so many more reason than what I thought in the beginning. One of the biggest reasons is – it seems that people from my real life have figured out that this is my blog. I am that nanny that rants about breastfeeding. Oooopps. My recent very innocent Facebook post has generated a lot of comments and passionate people defending their point of view which somehow led to be…

TFN’s Diary: I Can’t Wait To Offend You!

The Funny Nanny Diary

Happy Friday, everyone! So, for those few (thank you, thank you) who are following me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) you know I had few “conversations” recently about my vocabulary and humor I find in inappropriate things, especially for a nanny! Gasp! How dare I to be entertained by something that Jesus Christ would disagree with. To make it clear here. I am a Catholic. Born, raised, did all those things Catholics do, and I am not ashamed of…

TFN’s Diary: Ben Affleck’s Nanny

Nanny Problems, The Funny Nanny Diary
tfn's diary: nanny drama and Ben Afflec

As I wrote last time, this diary writing will be maybe tiny bit weird, crazy, offensive and vulgar. Maybe those are exactly the words I would use to describe myself. I promise to be polite in all the other parts of the blog. Maybe. Probably not. Dear Diary, Today I really, really, really want to punch some people in the face. Not gently to remind them to wake up, but full blown – I freaking hate you – punch. As…

The Funny Nanny’s Diary: INTRO

The Funny Nanny Diary
The Funny Nanny's Diary

As of today I will start writing diary, and to make it even worse (because who in the world is still writing diary?) I will post it here.   Ever since I have to call myself grown up and there is no hiding behind mommy and no one is making excuses for my poor decisions, I muted myself. I mute my opinions, my actions, my desires. I wash out and try to blend in repeatedly, over and over so others…

The Two Words That Changed My (Love) Life

The Funny Nanny Diary
2 WORDS That made me rethink my life and love choices #love #marriage

Back in 2010 you would find me in my bed, eating chips, chocolate and leftover of salami, pouring rum-cola down my throat and listening the most pathetic music you could imagine. I even had a playlist made especially for days when I need to cry and feel bad about myself. That year I broke up with my boyfriend, lost my job, gained 15lb, I felt like drowning and it seemed like things will never be the same for me. It…
