Received Monday, March 17, 2008-Possible Update
I was in the Wayland Sq Starbucks today and believe that I saw this same nanny. She had 3 little kids with her this time though, 2 girls and a boy. She was paying no attention to the kids and often walked away from the table leaving them with sad and bored little faces. I guess that Im not reporting anything ground breaking her but I figure that if the parents see these posts they may rethink things.

Au pair: Short, thin, long dark hair, Asian
Children: approx. 18 month-old girl and 9 month-old girl.
This happened a few weeks ago, but I never knew of this web site and wasn't sure what to do with what I witnessed. The au pair arrived with a double jogging stroller with both girls in it for story time. They were a little early. The au pair then took the older girl out of the stroller and left the store!! There was plenty of people around waiting for story time to start, and she could have easily asked any of us to watch the little girl while she ran out. She didn't say anything to anyone in the store, and left the baby in the stroller while she went next door to CVS with the older girl. After about five minutes the baby started fussing. About five minutes after that the au pair returned with the 18 month-old and a bag of cookies from CVS. It is completely unacceptable to leave that child in the store alone. On other occasions I have seen the au pair hit the 18 month-old's hand, hard enough to make her cry. The au pair has also picked up the baby's pacifier off the floor and given it back to the baby without washing it off. She has also let the 18 month-old drink a friend's Starbucks frozen drink, which young children should not be drinking. There is a group of au pairs that go to story time together and sit and chat the entire time, and hardly pay attention to these poor children. I have never seen parents with these girls. Only the au pair. I have seen her at the park as well as at story time on many different occasions, usually chatting with her friends and not paying attention to the children.
