I witnessed a boy I think was about six years old walking from the elementary school to Forest Park. The kid looked so happy and excited. He wanted to get home because he had made plans with his friend to come over and play. The nanny said, "oh no, all you do is make a mess at home, you can play here". The kid started to argue with her but she put her foot down and made a few more comments about how she wasn't in the mood to clean up one of his messes. The kid looked pretty sad but eventually realized his only choice was to play at the park. Which might have been fine except he didn't seem to know many people because he played on his own. The nanny plopped herself down and started reading her magazine.
The nanny wore a red zipper sweat shirt over a white shirt, black pants and some kind of almost velvet looking high top tennis shoes. She wore her hair in a pony tail with a blue band and was African American. The boys was wearing jeans, a white collared shirt and Nike tennis shoes. The nanny seems like a lazy b*tch, if she is your nanny, I suggest you start making playdates for your son. This is what children do at this age! What are you paying this woman for?
P.S. Boys make messes. That's what they do!
