10 Reasons Nana is the Best Babysitter Ever

Babysitters normally fall into one of two camps: terrifying old lady or cool teenager; Nana from Peter Pan breaks the mold. We’re not referring to the fact that she’s a dog, that’s not even the best thing about having her as a babysitter. Here are ten reasons why even now, as twenty-something adults, we’d be okay with it if Nana came over to watch us while our parents were out.

 

1. She balances trays on her head.

If Mr. Darling hadn’t tied her up outside, Nana would never have let Peter Pan take the kids to Never Land. Less interesting movie, but better parenting.
