Nanny McPhee, Come Help Me!

Nanny McPheeHow great would it be if there was such a person like Nanny McPhee?

She swoops in during times when our homes look far too similar to this:


Toys strewn, beds unmade, clothes spilling out of dressers, children's "artwork" crayoned onto walls.

Raise your hands if this scene is relatable for you.

In Nanny McPhee Returns, which comes out this Friday, Nanny McPhee (played by Emma Thompson) arrives and helps Mrs. Green (played by Maggie Gyllenhaal) get her life and household back into order. While I was watching the movie at a press screening, I couldn't help but yearn to have one of my very own. Okay, so my life isn't quite as tumultuous as the characters', but hey, I definitely have my "can't seem to get my head above water" moments.

In the world of magical nannies, the first thing I'd have my nanny do is clean, clean, clean! It's always difficult for me to try to find time to do hardcore, thorough cleaning, and my home oftentimes just gets the "pick up" cleaning routine.

Next would be the never-ending laundry.

Do you wish there was a Nanny McPhee to help you? What would be the first thing you'd have her do?
