My son's nannies

They say truth is stranger than fiction. Before Chip started daycare two months ago, he had a nanny. So, why is this interesting? Not because he had three nannies in the span of one year, but that the nannies had incredible stories to share. They all came from Ethiopia/Eritrea, the region most of us associate with the 120 sec. slot on the BBC World News, famine and despair. In the following posts, I'll recount the fascinating journeys these women took and how they came to be Chip's nannies and why they left. Ofcourse, their names and certain details about them will be changed to preserve privacy.
