Gio started throwing things in the corner space behind the TV.
The nanny then decided that that would be a good place to be stashing his toys.

Undated Event

One day as I came home, I approached the place where the nannies often gather to chat as the children play. The nannies were there this time, as well as a neighbour’s child, a girl of maybe three.

I had some trash to dispose of, so I passed where the congregation was and headed towards the trash bin.

“Uncle Telo! Uncle Telo!” called the little girl.
Anajificha!” (He/she is hiding!) “Anajificha!”
Nani? (Who?)
“Aunty Telo.” (Telo’s Auntie (nanny))
The gathered nannies were laughing at this.
Wapi?” (Where?) I asked.
Huko.” (There.) she pointed.
I went upstairs to our house and found the nanny standing at the balcony looking all innocent.

Saturday, 31st January – Moving Day.
My wife told the nanny she can’t work with someone who does not follow her instructions.
She cited the time when she had again left Gio asleep in the house and gone downstairs, then ran when she saw me arriving, but was reported by the neighbour’s child. He could go to the bathroom and take detergent. He could go to the stairs and fall. He could…
She did not deny the charges, but tried to downplay the incident. She was fired.

On reaching the new house, Telo’s time to sleep. Since his bed(room) had not been set up, we put a mattress on the floor in the living room and put him on it. He slept through all the commotion around.

I passed something to Gio and he said his version of ‘Thank you.’ I felt very proud of him.

I came back home and found nanny removing clothes from the line?
