Mary Poppins is:
a) The perfect nanny.
b) Old-school. (You doubt that spoonful of sugar was organic.)
If you answered b, give Green & Granola Domestics a ring. The cutting-edge placement agency specializes in matching naturally inclined families with savvy nannies and housekeepers.
Granola nannies get an intro to a range of topics, like attachment parenting, infant massage, and baby signing. Housekeepers use nontoxic ingredients (baking soda, vinegar) and are taught waste management.
You don’t need to be a full-blown hippie to use the service. Even if you just want someone to respect your disdain for plastic bags, they’ll find the right person for you.
Which is pretty supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
