Do you speak fluent Mandarin? Can you cook a four-course meal? Ride and groom a horse? Steer a 32-foot boat, manage an art collection, and clean an ice rink? Do you have celebrity contacts? And do you have the looks of a global supermodel?

If so, have you ever thought about becoming a nanny?

According to Adam Davidson in the The New York Times, the New York City area is home to scores of elite hyper-skilled nannies. Some wealthy families are willing to pay close to $200,000 a year for such a catch -- someone able to keep up with their sometimes wild demands. It's a great status symbol too, if you're nanny happens to have a degree from Harvard, or the looks of Penelope Cruz, or used to nanny Jon Bon Jovi's brood.
