Have you ever heard of a manny?  I'm not talking about the left fielder for the Boston Red Sox (although he is my favorite Manny).  I'm talking about a male nanny.  The latest nanny in the Dalinger family is a male nanny.  Lulu, the older sister, is sure that this strange man will cause the kids to seek psychiatric counseling in the years ahead.  But the younger kids find him fun.  Lulu seems to be the only family member who doesn't love this talented young man.  She eventually calls for a family trial to determine if the manny should remain with the Dalingers.  See what you think.  Is the manny really an fun-loving guy or too quirky to care for kids?
