Would you hire a nanny that made comments about your husband being attractive? Or is this a recipe for disaster?

No, I wouldn't hire anyone for any job if one of their first comments was about someone's good looks

unprofessional. being a visitor in your home and looking after your kids / slotting into your family, a professional person would be conscious of a mother / wife's feelings about 'letting someone in' and would NOT say those things. Someone who does, sounds like a slapper that doesn't give much thought to others. Dodge her.

Do not hire her she has already shown you she is unprofessional AND doesn't know boundaries AND interested in your husband

I would only hire plump grandma aged nannies.

 Haha, same. But I feel kinda bad for thinking this way

 Me too 😂 I've seen way too many midday movies to hire an attractive nanny.

I would not hire this woman. Which part of the job requires her to comment on your man's looks. I watched nightmare nannies. Omg 😱

No she sounds a bit tarty to be saying that to you

 OP here, yes I thought it was strange to be honest. Literally the first time we met she made a comment about him and then I saw her side eyeing him and smiling at him, but I wasn’t sure if I was being silly or not. Thanks for offering your opinion, I think I agree with you!
