Yes, really!

Do you fancy yourself as a real life Mary Poppins?

Well, now's your chance! One family has placed an advert for a nanny to work with their two little girls - but there's a huge catch - you have to dress up as a Disney character.

The family from Hertfordshire, UK are on the hunt for a Disney Princess nanny to take care of their five-year-old twin daughters.

As part of the role, you would have to dress up as a different Disney Princess each month - think Anna, Rapunzel, Belle and Cinderella.

Nope, this is not a joke. 

 

 

The parents posted the unusual job advert on childcare.co.uk.

The mum wrote: "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.

"Like most five-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, fearlessness and ambition from strong, yet relatable, female role models like Princess Tiana, Princess Anna, Belle and Cinderella."

 

 

The mum added, "The ideal candidate for the role will need to be able to "commit to a character" and create a fun atmosphere in the home - but can't be afraid to discipline the children when they're being "little terrors".

The main responsibilities of the position include working four days a week, picking the girls up from school (while in costume obviously), arranging a selection of Disney-themed activities (including baking, crafts and singing), cooking dinner and putting them to bed.

The parents continue, "Candidates must be looking for a long-term job as we want to keep the successful nanny in the girl's lives for the foreseeable future."

If you're worried that you'd have to spend some cash dressing up as a Disney character, don't panic, all costume hire is covered AND a salary of up to $73,000-a-year for the right person. "We know this isn't exactly a normal job offer," the parents added. "But we think it's a great opportunity for someone to get really creative and add a little magic to our girls' lives! So, if there are any Disney-mad nannies out there, who'd be able to help us out, please get in touch."

Altogether now, "Let It Go..."
