This happened on Thursday, April 12 10:00-11:00. Two blonde Polish women were at this museum with 4 kids between them. Mia was the only girl in the bunch, blonde hair in pigtails and a pink shirt on. Conner and 2 blonde boys were the other children. None of them could have been older than 3. I witnessed these women sitting on the side of the museum while the kids ran around the water area of the museum. They were just chatting away and would yell if they needed to get a child’s attention. At one point one of the blonde boys and Mia came over and asked me for help because they weren't tall enough to play on their own. Anyway she grabs him back and begins to scream at him again. I was highly disturbed by the behavior of these women and their lack of respect for these little kids. Oh and while the one was shoving cheese in her kids mouth the other was on the phone while 2 of the boys were playing with the string for the blinds and wrapping it around their neck and pulling. I stepped in and told them it wasn't safe they should let it go and got the most horrific look from one of the women.They finally packed up in a hurry and ran out when a mom started to approach them about one of the kids who were screaming. One of the boys had a yellow and blue Columbia coat with a navy blue fleece hat. I'm sorry I can't describe the women better I was with my 3 kids and trying to keep an eye on them as well! I get the feeling these women are there all the time, they knew the ins and outs of the museum pretty well.
04/17/07 More info regarding the Peggy Noteabart museum incident: I'm the original poster here--I ran into 2 of the women yesterday at Briar and Broadway. They are not stylishly dressed and were not at the museum either. They both look to be around 5'7 with dirty blonde hair, one of the women has shoulder length blonde hair with very dark roots showing through while the other one has hair that reaches past her shoulder. At the museum it was in braids yesterday it was down. I have to believe that the families they watch are around Briar and Broadway because the little girl was walking yesterday while the little blonde boy with curly hair was being pushed by the nanny with the shorter hair in a black single mountain buggy jogger. hope this helps! I'm sure I'll encounter these women again as they are close to me so I'll keep my eyes out.
