adj. Sexy in a nummy nanny way.

Real citation: "It hasn't been a good week for Tiger Woods. First, he lost his No. 1 ranking to Vijay Singh. Now, there are reports that his engagement to nannylicious Elin Nordegren is on the rocks. Rumor has it that Elin balked at wearing that Nike wedding gown. She was afraid it would slice open."
(Michael Bradley, "Don't expect Eagles to soar," SI.com, http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2004/writers/

Made-up citation: "According to The Guide to Better Business Writing, one must always avoid words like "nannylicious" and "ho-tacular" in interoffice memos."

As a nanny employer, I can say that not all nannies can be nannylicious. However, everyone who is nannylicious CAN be a nanny. I think MIT should immediately start studies on this phenomenon.
