So my {sweet and supportive} parents work in positions where they interact with a lot of people on the...ahem, wealthier side of...life(?). Tonight over dinner (spaghetti) the name of an individual was brought up, a grandparent...who helps the nanny with their grandchildren.

Hold. The. Phone.

If your nanny needs help you clearly have some parenting issues. The exception being if you have more than 4-ish children (adjust accordingly).
Three children? No.
A nanny can handle it (I did, & they were not easy children).
If you're 3 children are so out of hand grandparent frequently TRAVELS (long distances) to HELP the nanny, then they are out of hand.

** I happen to know this nanny is completely competent and as a former sitter of these children also know they are out of hand.**

How to lose a nanny in 10 days? Well, when she has to call in for reinforcements (regularly) expect a 2 week notice in your future.
