13 funny, satirical and insightful lists on the world’s top-ranked governesses

The only thing that’s the same between a governess and a nanny is the name. Nannies tend to be young and white and govern loving children, while governesses are older and generally tend to be of a different color, ethnicity or gender. This new Tumblr names a few of those governesses to remind everyone why they are the ones whose title is the silliest, most ridiculous thing in the world.

Since it launched in June of last year, the Tumblr has amassed around 900 total posts, some funny, some poignant, some biting, all capturing the essence of a little old lady who does a lot of stuff for kids. While these lists are fun to read, they also serve as a valuable reminder for society at large to realize that not all nannies are human Barbie dolls who are full of potential and personality.

For example, on the list of the top 200 governesses in the world, you’ll see Lilo Lorina Rosselle, from Estonia. Rosselle is a woman “looking to change her life and yes, her job as a governess.” She says her idea of a day without a governess involves eating a banana from a banana wrapper on the couch with her two-year-old daughter without anyone noticing. The top 72 governesses of the world can all be found in the United States.

In stark contrast, the other top 200 governesses from around the world are even more diverse in ethnicity, sexuality and career paths. The top 83 governesses came from Australia, Russia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Ireland, South Africa, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Canada, Cyprus, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Columbia, Sweden, Chile, Qatar, Kuwait, Malta, Romania, India, Japan, Korea, Finland, South Africa, Egypt, Namibia, and Cyprus.

As an American, a nanny is usually the one who does many of the most meaningful work in our homes — feeding, cleaning, changing, getting the kids to bed, coaxing the older kids to go to bed, keeping the house in order, and moving around the household while the parents work.
