Kids have been getting irritated around nanny

My kids have been getting irritated and acting up when the nanny is with them. We've had the same nanny for 1.5 yrs. my oldest (3)tells me she doesn't want her around and my son (18 months) now starts crying when she arrives. This has started recently although my oldest has been saying she doesn't want the nanny on and off for a while.

Occasionally they have jumped up and down when she arrives but at least for the most part they haven't been this unhappy.

They fight a lot (with each other) and fuss when she's with them. If I'm away I come home to hear how mischievous my 18 month old was. And things he never does when he's with me

I don't know what to make of this. I like her, the kids seemed to like her...

What do you all think? Thank you

I think you should listen to your kids. It sounds as if something may have changed, it could just be that your nanny is no longer as patient as she used to be which could be the cause of tension or it could be something more serious.
