In order to make their children's dreams come true and introduce them to Disney princesses, most parents plan a trip to Disney World or Disneyland. But for a couple in the U.K., hiring a nanny who will double as Disney-themed entertainment for their twin girls sounded like a better idea. Posting an ad to the site childcare.co.uk, the mom shares that she is looking for a "part-time nanny," but explains that she has a "slightly unusual request" ... which is that the nanny dress up as a different Disney princess every month.
"Myself and my husband are looking for a part-time nanny to care for our twin girls during the week, but we want to hire someone to look after our children whilst in character as a different Disney princess every month, such as Princess Anna, Moana, Rapunzel and Princess Merida," the ad reads. "Like most 5-year-olds, our girls are obsessed with Disney and we feel this would be the best way to communicate some important values. We know this isn’t a normal request for nannies, however we think it would be a great way to teach our girls about things like determination, compassion, fearlessness and ambition from strong yet relatable female role models like Princess Tiana, Princess Anna, Belle and Cinderella."
She continues, "We are looking for someone who can commit to a character and create a really fun atmosphere in our home, but also won’t be afraid to be a disciplinarian if the twins are naughty or act out—they can be little terrors at times! The right person will have a real creative flare as well as a passion for all things Disney and will be able to share that love of those characters with our girls. The role involves picking the girls up after school, four days a week, arranging a variety of Disney-related activities (arts and crafts, baking, singing, etc.), cooking dinner and potentially putting them to bed if we’re late home from work. The job is part-time, but the right nanny must be willing to work around our busy schedules."
The job pays $53K a year, which isn't too shabby, and the mom explains that they'll cover the cost of costumes. She admits, "We know this isn’t exactly a normal job offer, but we think it’s a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girl’s lives! So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there who’d be able to help us out, please get in touch."
While this definitely may not be the most conventional request ever, props to these parents for getting creative and going above and beyond for their kiddos. Once they find their perfect Mary Poppins—or should we say Princess Anna, Cinderella, Belle, etc.—their girls are to have quite the magical time with their nanny.
