I saw a great nanny today, (10/17) and had to share! This woman was in her mid-30's. Red-blonde curly hair, heavyset with a red shirt and green slacks. Her charge was named Mat, a little boy who is almost 3 (nanny told me when I asked) He was wearing Jeans with a design on one leg and a nice stadium jacket. Nanny was very active and attentive to her little boy. In fact, nothing indicated she was his nanny and I thought she was his mom until I asked her how old her son was and she said almost three but he's not my son, I am his babysitter. She had juice for him to drink, snacks for him when he got hungry, and was very involved in playing with him and interacting with him. She gave him just enough space to be independent and climb on his own, but was there for him whenever she was wanted or needed. When it was time for him to go and her charge sat down and said "NO!" and began to cry, nanny lovingly got down beside him and spoke very softly to him. Mat stood, still crying a bit but much more under control and nanny praised him to the sky saying what a "big boy" and thanking him for showing her such "Nice walking" They left the park, on foot, heading up towards Division Street. If this is your nanny you are very lucky. I am sorry I did not get her number!
