Midtown Manhattan, on West 57th Street (@ corner of 6th Ave), front of apt building, bus stop next to Rue 57 restaurant. I quite often walk past a nanny with her charge on my way to work, and they truly brighten up my day. She is African American, middle age, her charge is a male Caucasian toddler of around 3-4 yrs old. Usually they are both just standing around or probably waiting for someone, but there is absolutely no denying or second guessing just how happy or well adjusted this little boy is, and how comfortable he is to be with her. Her caring and patience shines through each and every time I happen to see them out there. Seeing these 2 together always bring a smile to my face, it's a very comforting emotion. Given all the horror stories and mishaps some babies and toddlers experience, this Nanny and this little boy, both are truly blessed. I hope the parents of this little boy recognize and appreciate what a gift they have in her. --Kelly, NYC
