Childcare Diaries


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

When I opened my eyes, I became the nanny from a book I once read.

The nanny that kills the child she’s tasked to care.

With her experience from her previous life, she saves the child and saves her own life in the process as well… but strangely the child’s uncle keeps appearing before her.

“Uncle, uncle.”

Brielle has started to speak to his uncle.


Although the uncle’s response is awkward, his face glowed with a smile.

However, his face hardened when his nephew said this,

“Step away. Step away.”

That is what Brielle said when he saw the uncle and Marie (the nanny) together, who were deciding which storybook to read that day.

I really want to like this webnovel, but the writing is not great. It's very choppy and sometimes hard to understand. Also five chapters in and I feel like I'm just staring into the windows of a random kindergarten or something. I love all the characters but I don't feel particularly connected to any of them except maybe the Count. I like Marie, but her character starts and ends with 'nice'. Two stars because I like the premise and the Count.

This story is FULL of FLUFFINESS!! Every single chapter you're gonna be like "Awwww, my heart!" The FL is so kind, caring, and sweet that it makes me have a heartache! Our ML, the count is a shy awkward ball. And finally our universe, Briel (or can be called Brielle) is the cutest EVER!! His actions will clutch your heart so tightly!

... more>>

Update: Brielle (Briel) is actually getting a little possessive over Marie. For example, when he gave a cookie to the count, instead of hearing praise from his uncle, he wanted to hear praise from Marie!! And just as the summary story was written on description, Brielle, pushed away his uncle to be with Marie!! If that's not cute, then I don't know what is!

Gosh this story is so cute and fluffy!

The story wents on our FL Marie being transmigrated in a novel as someone who will kill our very cute Brielle. But she change the plot and save this cute cinnamon roll.

She was mesmerize in our cute cinnamon roll who look like a little cherubs!

... more>> Female lead Marie

  • A very calm person
  • A sweet little nanny of our precious cinnamon roll.
  • A mother figure in the future. (Winks)
  • The one who treasure our cute little Brielle.
Male lead The count. Whats his name? Because it doesnt mention a lot on the novel.

  • The uncle of little Brielle.
  • For sure he is the ML because I will not take it if its not. (The interaction is just so sweet!)
  • Always awkward when she was with Marie but still cute!
  • One who treasure our precious cinnamon roll!
Brielle the cute cinnamon roll!

  • He was so cute!
  • Very cute!
  • Super duper cute!
  • Okay infinity cute!
If you like adventurous novel with lots of lots of story plot. This will not be on your taste.

This precious story ehem! It's just a calm and a sweet and a fluffy story. It's much more focus in how this cinnamon roll grow up and being taken care of. I'm sure our serious Count will change his serious attitude very soon and love our pretty nanny.

All in all 4 and a half star is I will give. Everything needs a space for improvement. <<less

That's a total odd ball and a painful 2.5 for something which could have been seriously better

it's hard to endure the beginning and I understand one might drop it before it reaches anything interesting - it would be very easy to skip or fast forward that painful beginning. It will pick up, but it's far from flawless
it could be a nice mix, the sweet thing and the danger, the growing relationship, there's enough to make a really good story, but again it lacks a very good trimming, the timeline is totally bad, the « diary thing can become an absolute mess when fill in episode pop in totally out of place (who cares for the heart of a kid who's accused of mu*dering his own parents ? Chocolate episode anyone ? Better follow with a love proclamation and romance that was on on stand by for years ? What a disastrous sense of timing !) so while it picked up after a while, it became disappointing for a totally different kind of reasons

the « childcare « thing : Basically it's like a few screenshots of a « make a smarter kid » channel, luckily it's not too heavy into pushing brain performance, but it still weird (like you'd need seaweed to enrich tactile environment (Wool silk wood chalk, etc, duh, but a stinky seaweed ? Why not a fish ?) In the same way toddlers are pre wired to learn how to turn, sit, crawl and walk without any strange push and pull intervention, really when you read that you wonder how our ancestors manage to stand at all!).

So, not only is it weird it's also very short and jump time too fast to be of any interest part (and not so accurate)

The good part would probably be that she's positive and nurturing - as long as she doesn't teach grammar - so yeah, it's weird but mostly fluff and totally of pace as when you'd actually take another spoon of the same jam, you already skipped a month or a year, and there's no continuation (the count has a hard time holding the baby ? Then skip, she teaches him, but we never see results, etc)

The « diary part », that is also extremely weird : a diary should have one single author, but here not so, so basically it's title implies you can jump jump fast forward or drown the content with something entirely different at will because it's what a diary look like ?? Meh, actually that doesn't really work

because here's the thing, this sweet story is laced with an incredible amount of mu*ders (the parents, the grand parents, the friend family, and of course the baby (it's only an attempt) that's a lot !), and these are not peaceful waiting for a resolution : so explain to me how it's ok to write about mu*der the family of one of the kids and to talk about chocolate cakes on the next chapter ? Not working

the jump of time also makes the relationship rather awkward, I mean many years passed, we have no idea of the age of the MC and her siblings, after a while it became seriously hard to know even the age of the baby (in the « Middle Ages » you didn't give a sword to a boy before 7) so is the little one 8 or 10 ? Is he absurdly younger copying lines when normal kids learn letters ? In any case 7 to 10 years for love to sprout is... dully slow... at best ? That also seems incredibly long to resolve the mu*ders after decades really seems little likely, but the continus attack are probably what kept the story interesting

Transmigrating into the « Middle Ages »? Seriously make it a fantasy world if won't have a single point of historical value - so you can't escape snacks, chocolate, shopping sprees, very original furniture shop (ikea ?) and ready made fashion, did I forget dentist ? meh is the writer living with no internet ?

So what is the point ? Knight to put swords in children hand and let them kill bad guys because they're that strong (we were talking childcare ?)

A vicious hierarchical system that causes misery and mu*ders (not a few) ; so you have all the master and servant talk... but none of it matters because the count doesn't treat them like servant... (??) and anyway they will marry, plus they used to be aristocrats (there's no real commoner here) what a kink ?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story!

Marie is my ideal MC. She's gentle, kind yet not a pushover. I really love her interaction with the cutest baby Brielle and his awkward yet cute uncle (≧◡≦)

This story is more of their slice-of-life even though there's some plot from the original timeline where the oriMC was hired to kill Brielle

... more>> Ah! I just want to see the Count and Marie get married! ♡ (。- ω -) They are so cute and shy together lol it's hilarious if Brielle objected to the wedding someday

Thank you for the author and translators! Am waiting for more chapters ;) <<less

This is really good, much better than it has any right to be tbh. The chapters are very long so if you read casually this should last at least a few days. It's mostly fluff but there's an actual story as well, which is good because usually SoL fluff stories run out of gas at a certain point once the kid (s) grow up or the main couple gets together, and that doesn't seem like it will be the case here.

Imma put this as completed even if I technically didn't complete it. I didn't bother reading the SS cuz this is one of the most boring novel I've read.

Since no one had given spoilers, probably cuz they've given up on this novel halfway, or just couldn't bother writing for a s*upid plot like this, I'll be the one to put y'all to rest. SPOILERS AHEAD SO PLS READ AT YOUR OWN RISK (or tbh, just read my spoilers to save your braincells)

... more>>

Basically a boring plot. FL is the nanny who transmigrated. OG FL was an evil one who didn't care about her siblings and only wanted to cling on their prestigious bloodline even if they're already a fallen noble. So when FL came in on the body of the FL, she has the memories of her past life as well as the story. Tbh I can't remember the plot lmao. I've been reading this for 3 months and keep taking breaks so I might've confused some parts. Anyway I think the FL read the book so she knows how the book ends. So she tries to save Brielle (an extra on OG timelime that was killed, and that was the switch that made the count, his uncle, be a main villain till he got killed by the OG ML). She succeeded saving Brielle as well as the count (cuz the count never became bad since Brielle lives). A lot of boring things happened along the way. Oh we have a King who hates his Queen (they deserved it. Queen is basically useless asf anyway and in the "name of love" tries to pretend to be ignorant of her evil father, yet she wants the King's affection. Bruh, if I was the king, I'd hate you too lmao), and a Queen who as I said, is basically useless in life. She also is a distant relative of the count (ML) so I guess being evil runs in their genes (ML became the villain on OG timeline. This timeline and prolly on OG timeline Queen's father is evil too).

They kissed at ch 74 (cuz Marie got almost killed for being a s*upid f*cker). You see someone suspicious (and this is with knowledge that the family is being targeted so you should've been guarded around strangers) and what does this hoe do is she approached it and talked to it and confronted it. Should've died tbh. I'd do the same if I was the villain too. What does she think the minor evil goon would do to her when she confronts it? Sprinkle her with fairy dust? But then again, s*upid FL's in any manhwa lives a lot longer than strong-willed FL's.

ANYWAAAAAAY, we all know (from spoilers in NU) that Jaz (Siege's older brother) is a villain but isn't the biggest one. He's just a puppet following a higher up. Eujes is also one of the puppet (you know, the guy who was initially thought as a 2nd ML along with Taylor tbh. But Taylor is good. It's Eujes whatever his name is, is bad. Poisoned Brielle at almost end of the story. Chapter 95 I guess? He got jail time. Like for real that's it. Nobody even bothered killing him. It's why he was able to escaped on the end and almost killed Marie.

But back to the characters. Let me tell you the main villain is [mostly] the Queens father and the King (who is guilty by association). And it basically started becase brielle's mother has a twin who wa supposed to be the one who got married but the bit*h is a selfish one so she ran away with her lover and the twin sister have to step up and marry the ML brother. Guilty by association too cuz she knew her sister and husband got killed but she didn't gaf as she's a selfish bit*h anyway..
Anywaay, the story is there was once a King (lets say King A). King A has two sons, CP Son1 and prince son2. There's a law the states only 1st born son are supposed to succeed as king (hence why son1 became CP). But he died. And so, the supposed to be next in line is the nephew of King A. But P2 is a greedy mf and he has a backing of the queens fam (who was pushing for him to be king). ML's maternal family is pushing for nephew for king. So the queen's fam killed the ML's family. Prince2 became king and now in debt with queen's fam. This is also the reason on OG timeline, there was a time the count after being "crazy" villain, suddenly gathered his wits. It's cuz he found out who the culprit that killed his family (but OG ML Siege killled him before he took revenge).
Anyway, so the revenge took place. King went down hard. Another dumb scenario included again (like how tf your estate keeps getting infiltrated. If you know you have sh*t security, might as well make a panic room right? All those riches and being one of the smartest man in the empire and you can't even think a simple idea as that? Anyway, queen's father infiltrated, then he prolly got killed but it wasn't detailed. S*upid queen escaped cuz she confessed her father's crime to ML days prior and ML pitied her I guess (see? Proves the point s*upid female on any novel or manhwa ALWAYS lives the longest). Marie got injured again (by eujes?). She should've died tbh but dumb females lives longest. The end. I didn't bother reading the side stories. It ended at Chapter 111.

Let’s get it out of the way: It’s written like a children’s storybook. First I was glad that the author was quick to explain the situation and didn't lose time by explaining their past for 20 chapters, unlike other books from this genre. BUT THE WHOLE BOOK IS A SUMMARY. I checked later chapters and nothings changed so I’ll be dropping this at chapter 15. It’s cute, too bad the writing style isn’t my cup of tea. I don’t even know how to rant this.

I think I should make another RL. Lol. I barely put this in my Great Stories RL where I put the novels that I'll be rereading and loved are. This novel was in the middle of a Just Done Reading RL and Great Stories RL.

I picked this up because it's childcare and I like reading cute babies. Tbh, I didn't finish this in one go, like how I mostly my novels. There are times where I read another novel after reading a few chapters of this novel, or reading a... more>> manga/hwa. I stopped reading for days then picked this up again.

If I try to read it in one go, I might dropped this one. It does feel boring at times. I like the plot but maybe the narration? Also, I felt lost when there are time skips because I never got to truly know their ages. Sometimes I feel like the time moves so slow. Also, that there are no news with the other side characters. I want to know what happened to them after the uprising. They weren't mentioned in the after stories.

Anyways, I quite like this one, if I'm looking for a novel that I'll just read from time to time or a novel to read very slowly.

It's different from others because the two have a healthy relationship and there's no f*cking huge misunderstanding and mistrust going through the whole novel. They are honest with each other. The children aren't spoiled brats, they are loveable. And that for a change, I've read a FL who confess to the ML of her transmigration (same as Raeli). I like the part where FL said that she can't push the OG!ML to the OG!FL since he doesn't like fake relationships. He hates the attraction power of the male leads. Haha.

Not the best, but not too bad either. <<less

It’s a Ropan child parent genre novel. If you go into this story with that expectation, it’s a great fic. If you have other expectations, you may be disappointed.

It’s a cute fluffy story about a child being raised by a transmigrator. With romance between the MC and ML on the side.
