What can I say...

Some things never cease to amaze me....
the latest?

I was at the club where my children take swim lessons. Now, I am not sure if I have mentioned, (though I know Gabriela has), many children are taken care of here by their nannies. Here in Brasil they are called Baba's.
Now usually, they are very caring, loving second (sometimes almost more than the first) Mothers.
Well, I guess they need to find time in their busy schedules, too....
and obviously they are not making that much money....

So what did I see?

While their kids were in class, there was one Baba leaning over another one that was sitting.
I noticed because she looked like her shirt was a little too small, but anyways...
she had a razor blade in her hand, and she was doing the eyebrows of the other Baba.
I went to take a picture with my phone after I got over the shock of it, but by then, the job was done!
Quick, cheap and all in a day's work, I guess!

Sounds efficient to me! You noticed her because her shirt was too small? I saw a lot of that in Brazil ;)
