This is the lesson we have all learned recently. Seemingly, every child being abducted these days is being carried off by the nanny. I can remember the good old days when nannies just slept with the husband and/or tried to kill the wife. Think back to “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” and the awesome Rebecca De Mornay. Hubba hubba.
Ah, the good old days. Today, however, anytime a child goes missing the nanny invariably did it. The latest case involves the child of Meagan McCormic. Seems that Meagan went on her local television station crying her heart out (sans tears) over the abduction of her baby, Riley. It seems that Riley was abducted by a French nanny named Camile. Immediately, I knew this had to be true because those French people are always up to no good.
What made it even sadder was that the child’s daddy had just flown down to Miami from Boston to see his baby for the first time. What should have been a beautiful reunion turned quickly into a nightmare. The police quickly put out a picture of the ugly red headed child. (Sorry, just sticking to the facts). The mother described little Riley as having a mohawk, one tooth and an artificial tattoo. Um…ok. Sounds reasonable.
After the story kept getting more and more bizarre, Meagan finally admitted that there was no child. It was all a hoax. She had been pregnant back in March but miscarried. In hopes of keeping her boyfriend, she told him that the baby was alive and well. As much as I wanted to blame the French, it seems they were innocent…this time.
So what kind of penalty does one pay for wasting taxpayers money and breaking the heart of a naive boyfriend? A misdemeanor charge for filing a false police report and maybe a request to pay for the overtime paid during the search. Wow, quite a stiff penalty, don’t you think? She should have at least have to pay for the boyfriends round trip air fair. That guy got totally jobbed. Of course that’s what happens when you dip the wick in a reckless fashion. You youngsters out there consider yourself warned.
Personally, I am going to be keeping an even closer eye on Jo Frost, “The Super Nanny”. Now that I see what kind of stuff they are up to these days, you can never be too careful. Of course, if Rebecca De Mornay shows up at your door, you would be an idiot not to let her live in your house. No background check required.
And guys in Miami, if you see this woman, run for your life!!! (Although she is kind of attractive…Maybe a brisk walk instead of full out running).
