But I absolutely love the baby phase.

Excuse me, ma'am...

Not now, dear... A little later.

Alright... Mi come back.

I'm going to be home for six months.

In that time, I want the baby

sleeping through the night.

You never know with babies...

That's where the nanny comes in, right?



My babies were very good sleepers.

Of course, now, they refuse

to go to bed on time...

We would expect you

to cook all the meals.

Wash up, laundry... That's

in addition to the baby...


As well as I bought...

No, no...

...Mommy made a mistake...

...but Mrs. Singh is going

to take good care of you.


Marva, it's time to say

goodbye to your children...

No, no, no, no... Please!


Come honey...

Please... Don't do this.

Come here.

NO! Sean!


I love you, I love you.

Let go of her!


No, they're mine!





Are you okay?

I'm so... I'm so sorry.

Well, thank you...

Mrs. Field...

I promise, I'm not a flake.

I'm very good at sleep-training

and I'm an excellent cook.

If you hire me...

Thank you, Marva!

I really need this job.

You're a deportee, aren't you?

It's complicated...

Marva, please, I'm afraid

I can't hire a criminal.

No, I'm...

Yes, dear, do have those colours for me?

Oh, this is beautiful, this

is what I had in mind...

So, you can take this one to the

front, this one to the back...

Yo, cous...
