Like the look of them. They also look like spiders to me.

Well we do play. I personally try to play all day if it wasn't for paper work I would. I have even had school children not quite understand that I get paid to look. after them.

i teach all my mindees from the word go that i do work, and my work is playing with them, so that their mummies & daddies can go to work!!!

It's a tricky one, especially when parents have explained that they go to work to pay bills and then they ask what work I do and I tel them that playing with them is my job. I worry that they might think 'why can't my mummy play with me for her job?'

I remember when I was a live in nanny, many years ago now. The little boy asked me "What are those things mummy gives you called wages" Lol
