On Monday, Regarding Nannies featured "Monday Moxie: Nannies Across America" in which Sue Downey shared with us what the 2010 Nannypalooza will be all about.  Many cities are in the works already of planning a wonderful day of learning for professional nannies.   These events will be held during the weekend of Sept 18th and 19th, 2010.
