A lot of people think that whole notion of the dad hooking up with the babysitter or nanny is just a cliche. You know, the stuff of middle-aged male fantasies. Yes, there's a bunch of Lifetime movie plots dedicated to that scenario and you occasionally hear about a star hooking up with the nanny (Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, Jude Law), but do everyday guys really go there?
There are not stats on that, but I bet a bunch entertain the thought. I know a woman with a terrible nanny -- and by terrible I mean she comes in late, is lazy, and even worse, was once caught drinking on the job. Totally deserves to be canned, right? Well this woman’s hubby refused to fire her. When she did it anyway, he felt so bad he hired her as an assistant at his company. Shady, don't you think? That said, I doubt most guys are gutsy enough to go that far or even actually make a move. But take a look at the warning signs to tell if your man has a major crush on your babysitter:
