I was at the Chelsea Tree House in Chelsea, MI today at around 1-3 PM. I brought a magazine so I could sit and read and let my DB get his yayas out. This is a great and clean place for children if you haven't been there. At one time, I went towards the climbing structure to ask ds if he was hungry for lunch. I witnessed a nanny dressed in tight, white t-shirt, tight blue jeans, tennis shoes with big earrings and straightened hair involved in a conversation ten feet from the play structure. Away from other parents but in earshot of a handful of children. Her language was atrocious. I was disgusted and moved away. When DB came to join me for lunch at table, the nanny or sitter was no nearby on her cellphone again. The language she used was laced with obscenities and racial epitaphs. In short, she was a very "hard" looking caregiver and I really have to wonder how you the parent decided that she was a good bet? I am not even sure which children she was supervising. I did see a child approach her complaining of thirst while she was on the phone. The sitter sighed and made a big deal about taking the cap off of a water bottle and handing it to the child. The child was a girl, with brown hair in pony tails, 4ish wearing a light pink shirt on it with a 3D looking pink pig on it.
