I am going back to work in June and we have been interviewing Nannys.
I found one lady who was the cheapest I've interviewed and willing to watch my kids in my home. One catch? Her drivers license said 370 ish pounds, she has asthma, and can barely walk.
I feel like I cannot hire her to watch my two, very energetic, toddlers. They are always running around and busy.. and seeing as how she could barely walk up my stairs, and was breathing heavy just from that. She had poor hygiene, as well. I dont think she can promote the healthy lifestyle we encourage (we go on at least a 3 mile walk everyday, my kids love being outdoors.. I put in the ad that we need someone who can keep up with these activities.)
Now dont get me wrong, I am overweight (although not obese) and my mom IS obese.. and I would never say that someone should be limited because of their weight.. but in this case, I want to know others opinions.

I want to add that my mom is obese by medical standards but is still physically able to chase after my kids and take them on walks and so on.. so Its not the "obese" part as much as.. shes not physically able to be an active and good babysitter.
