中国小保姆 - Chinese Little Nanny

来到深圳二天了,休息了二天之前的晕车症好了很多食欲好了很多。听中介公司的人说,今天下午两点,会有人来请保姆,要求越小的越好,我也有可能被选中。工作人员叫我做好心理准备和一个好笑容。

他们来了,二位中年妇夫。所有合格这二位夫妇要求的人都坐成一排,加上我一共有4个人。妇夫俩逐个问我们多大,从那里来。喜不喜欢和小孩子玩。有没有兴趣学煮菜。会不会打扫卫生。最重要的是要会看小孩。我们的回答都差不一样。喜欢和小孩玩。有兴趣学煮菜。会打扫卫生。家里有弟弟妹妹,照看过他们。我们都答完之后,工作人员要求我们都到外面去。方便让妇夫俩商量录用那一个。最后他们选了12岁的小黄。因为她年纪最小,他们比较喜欢。也比较好教,不会有太多不同的想法好控制。能做保姆的时间也比较长。工作人员安慰我们,不要灰心明天晚上6点还有一家要来。也是要小的,带6个月的宝宝。到时你们表现好一点就行了。

之前就听中介里的人说。以前有好几个年纪很小的被请去后,做没多久,雇主家很喜欢就当成自家的小孩子,送她们去学校,放学回来后再做些家务。月底还可以领薪水。多么好啊!可以去上学,回来后再工作。心理许愿希望自已也能那么幸运。

等来了第二个面试,工作人员叫我们下来。俩位老爷爷、奶奶问的问题和之前俩夫妇差不多。在工作人员的推荐下录用了我。让我明天下午就可以搬到他们家。工作人员告诉我这个消息后,我好高兴。不用再忧虑别人不考虑我请我,也不用担心要等很久才能找到工作。

第二天下午爷爷和奶奶来中介公司接我。一路上他们很友好,叫我不要害怕。到了他们家就像在自已家住一样。让我和宝宝一样就叫他们爷爷和奶奶。叫宝宝的父母我做强哥和英姐。宝宝的名字是李志深,平时都叫他宝宝。

来到了他们家。奶奶把我带到我的房间,放好行李。他们让我和宝宝玩一下让他熟悉我,顺便和我说说平时都应该做些什么。怎样打扫卫生。带宝宝的时侯要注意什么,和宝宝的作息时间。奶奶煮菜的时侯要在旁边看着学。大多数下是爷爷和奶奶带宝宝。等教会我带宝宝后他们二个就回老家去养老。所以请我来。希望我能在他们家把宝宝带到去上小学。到那时我也成年了会让我学电脑,去强哥的公司里上班。还可以帮我在深圳介绍男朋友。听到这让我有点不好意思,脸都红了。他们见状都笑了。还说他们都是好人不要担心,不要怕未来没着落,我们会帮你的明白吗?我只能点头说好了。我心想,工作还好说。如果是介绍的男朋友我不喜欢怎么办?刚开始对他们说的这些话我都有点吓到了。既然打算得这么长远,还按排好了我的婚事和未来。好像他们说的是真的。或者只是想说点好听的让我安稳的在那里把宝宝带大。不过真的觉得他们人特好。

接下来的几天里,爷爷、奶奶带我和宝宝到处去逛公园、商场、中国老式菜市场。希望我快点熟悉那里的地区还境。全家去饭店吃饭也带上我,点很多好吃的菜给我吃。还给我2百元去买自已喜欢的新衣服。说他们特别喜欢我。我也告诉他们我也很喜欢你们每一位,很幸运来到你们家。

工作快一个星期了,奶奶跟我说每个周末星期五晚上,有二个哥哥要过来家里吃饭,是我姐姐的儿子。他们都在强哥的公司上班。叫我跟她一起到厨房里准备晚饭。在晚饭快准备好的时侯,他们来了。奶奶出去打招呼。我一个人在厨房里,装好饭摆桌。这时我听见他们用广东话对话。奶奶说我们请了个小姑娘过来帮忙,等一下介绍给你们认识。人长得不错哦,年纪也还小,以后看看你们两个谁喜欢她就取她回家做老婆。听到这我有点不好意思出厨房门了。幸亏他们不知道我能听懂广东话,我以可装做没听到,自然地出来,跟他他说可以吃饭了。大家都地来后。奶奶向我介绍他们两。你可以叫他阿荣25岁是哥哥,他叫阿深22岁是弟弟。她叫小美。你们以后可以做朋友。大家坐下来后。阿深就开始对我笑与我聊天。他是一个比开朗的人,阿荣一看就是那种比较沉稳比较内向的人。不过二个都长得帅啊!这让我更害羞了。

几天后不知道怎么的,我的手指又出现敏感、瘙痒,就擦了一些从家里带来的药膏。在老家里的医生说是皮肤过敏。擦一下药就行。可是宝宝的妈妈闻到后。去医院问我的情况。回家后就说我的皮肤是有传染性的。不得不终止我在他们家的工作。短短的二个星期也没到,就这样第一份工作结束了。我又回到了中介公司。

in Shenzhen already two days, got some rest the carsickness and appetite is better. heard the people who working in the agent said this afternoon 2 pm will have one family come interview for the nanny requirement age the younger the better, they say i may will be select too tell me to get ready and a good smile

they arrived two middle-aged couple,the girls sit in a row who are qualified for this couple. plus me we are 4 people.

they asking us questions:
how old are we?
where we are come from?
do you like kids and play with them?
do you know how to clean?
have you any interest learning how to cook?

the most important thing is know how to look after kids.

our answer were similar:
yes i like kids and like to play with them.
have interest with learn how to cook.k
know how to clean and how to look after kids because we have younger brothers sisters so i help parents to look after.

when we all answered the question the workers ask we to go outside. allow the couple to discuss employment which one. finally they chose 12 years old xial huang - because she is the youngest girl, this is what they want and easy for them to teach and control, younger wont have too much theirs own mind. also they can be a nanny for longer time.

staff comfort us tell don't to worry tomorrow evening 6 pm will have another interview also want hire a young girl take care of their 6 month old grandson, be good behavior when in interview .

the workers told me before there is some people hired younger girls like who is 12 years old and feels they are too young to stopped go to school would like to send them to go school again treat them as the member of family and when it come back from school the girl do some house work too so the employer also pay for her the end of month too. i wish i'm lucky like those girls.

the second interview comes, workers ask we come downstairs, this time is a grandpa and grandma asking the similar question like the couple before.

they hire me after the workers recommendation of me. let me move into the family tomorrow afternoon, when they tell me this good news i'm very happy. dont have to worry about no people will like the age of me and have to wait for a long time to get a job.

next day afternoon grandpa and grandma pick me up at the agent, on the way to the house they talking to me and tell me don't be afraid. live in there with them just like living in your own house. call them grandpa grandma same like theirs grandson calls. call baby's dad be qiang ge (qiang brother) and mom be ying jie (ying sister). baby's name is zhi shen li usually we can call he baby.

arrived theirs house grandma take me to go my room put down my suitcase. and go to play with baby first let he know me. and tell me what should i do - how to do the job and baby's schedule. also when grandma cook i should stand by side watch how to learn to cook it. but most of time grandpa and grandma will look after the baby.

when i learned everything and baby get to know me well, they will go back to hometown retire in there. so they hire me here, hope i can take care baby until he old enough to go primary school.

at that time i'm also adult too will send me to go learn computer skill work in qiang ge company. and will happy to introduce a boyfriend for me too. it make me shy to hearing this. get a red face. they see it - everybody laughing at me. say they are good people - tell me don't worry about my future - hope i can understand them.

i tell them i understand.

i think in my mind if they will help me find a job in the future that is ok. but if a boyfriend i don't like what to do? in the beginning i was a little scared about what they say about this. they already make a plan for my future. they seem to mean it. or maybe they just trying to say something nice to make me work steadiest for them till baby go to primary school. any way i feel they are very nice peoples.

in the next few day grandpa and grandma take a to walk around the parks - shopping mall - Chinese traditional market. just hope i can get to know well the region environment in area. also take me to go restaurant every time when they all go. order a lot dishes for me. also give me 200 rmb - buy some clothes i like. tell me they like me a lot. i say i like everyone of you and lucky to work in your family too.

almost one week i work here, grandma tell me very weekend Friday night hers older sisters two son will come here for the dinner. they working in qiang ge company. want me to go kitchen prepare dinner with her.

when dinner almost get ready they arrived, grandma go out greet to them. i stay laying the table for dinner.

i can hearing them talk in cantonese. grandma say "we hire a girl come to help, you will meet her - she is in kitchen - kind of good looking and very young. you can marry her if you like in the future.

heard this i'm nervous. lucky they don't know i can understand Cantonese. i can pretend i didn't heard anything, come out naturally tell them to eat. every body come after, grandma introduce each other for us.

say i can call he a rong the older brother 25years old.

call he a shen younger brother 22 years old. and they can call me xiao mei. you guys can be friend. we greet to each other. everybody sit down after a shen smiling at me start talk to me. he is cheerful person. but the older brother is the kind introverted person and look more steady. both are look handsome this make me more shy .

few days later i don't know how my fingers growing something in there and make it itch. i think i have skin allergy again. put some cream i bought it in hospital of home town. the doctor said it is fine just ate something wrong got the allergy. but baby's mom go to hospital of Shenzhen, the doctor there tell her my fingers allergy will infect to the people. she is so worry about i will give this to hers son. have to terminate my job. i don't even work enough two week here. this is how i lose my first job. i go back to agent again.

It seems sp strange to us in the west the way they choose you, young as possible so your maleable and then they raise you the way they want... Both to be a long term nanny and with the intention of marrying you off to their sons... Its hard for us to imagine, like something from a book but not real life..

Also I think you must be very brave to leave home at a young age and travl far away from your home and family, pretty much alone, i know you had some friends from your village but still... To a city youve never been to for such a change in your life.. 16 is young for that but at 12???

How often do girls get to go home to visit their families when they do this?

BTW I know you are struggling w your English but you are doing great and tell an awesome story!

Your story could be a movie...

谢 谢 你,有时侯觉得真的很不容易,不就是吃饭、睡觉、吃、喝、拉、撒、吗?呵呵。我常常跟自已说没钱就不花,钱少就尽量少花费,这样生活就单间了。

What a sad story. This seems so unreal to me as a Australian. It almost seems cruel. A young girl of 12 going to be a nanny when she should be going to school and playing with her friends.
I hope everything ends up well for both of you.
Good luck and best wishes.
