After the Apocalypse came, changed its mind, and went, nothing much changed. Except, slowly, very very slowly, some things did.
Alternatively: Aziraphale and Crowley are beset by the curious youth of Heaven and Hell.

Sometimes, a family is a demonic nanny, an angelic cook, and a kid who isn't actually the Antichrist.
Or: Crowley helps Aziraphale secure a different position at the Dowling Estate.

“Will you please, kidnap me?” Warlock requested in the same tone of voice he had asked to go to the zoo the day before.
“Of course not, Warlock,” Aziraphale said immediately. “You are very safe here. The security is flawless.”
“Don’t lie to him!” Crowley hissed, clutching the boy closer to him as though it would make him forget the words the angel had just spoken. “Do you want the Prince of This World to remember you as a liar at the time of the Apocalypse?”
“Mommy and Daddy wouldn’t even care!” Warlock went on insistently, paying no heed to his nanny’s nonsense words. They made no sense, anyway.
“Of course they would, Warlock,” Crowley said immediately. “After they noticed you were gone, anyway.”

The Dowlings miraculously need a nanny and a gardener at the same time, and Aziraphale suggests they flip for it. Crowley takes one moment to picture Aziraphale nannying anyone and calls dibs. It’s not that Aziraphale’s terrible with humans, he’s just, well. Terrible with humans. Truly, truly terrible.
He doesn’t want to deal with Aziraphale getting metaphorically guillotined or kicking up security’s paranoia, basically. A gardener can be a little odd, and no one will notice or care. Except Warlock, perhaps, as the only other person with any real reason to spend much time out on the lawn, but Warlock’s the one they want noticing so that’ll be fine, Crowley’s sure.
Even if it does make him cringe a little, leaving Aziraphale in charge of the plants.

They were still the heavenly locks of an angel; even the fallen serpent was still allowed that bit of blessed luxury.
