Duties of a Nanny

I am reading a book called "What the Other Mothers Know." This book is a fun read with lots of helpful hints for moms. But I found an interesting hint in it--a list of what a nanny/housekeeper should be able to do:
Follow the baby's schedule
Play with the baby
Take the baby for walks
Bathe the baby
Do laundry and ironing
Clean the house
Do the weekly shopping
Prepare meals
Work overtime
Be always available via cell phone

!! I thought, "There is no way you could hire someone to do all that. Oh, wait--I do all of that, and more, if that is possible." To give this book credit they started the list with "Remember what they called that kind of woman back in the day? A wife."
