Good Nanny Sighting I saw your nannyThis story happened in Buford, GA, at the Mall of GA in the Kidgits playground area around 6:30 pm on December 19th, 2007.

If this is your nanny, you need to give her a raise! The nanny was about 26 years old, African American wearing blue jeans and a white jacket with a dark shirt. The little boy was not quite 2, according to the nanny. The boy was white, with platinum blond hair wearing a red Christmas sweater and tan pants. The nanny was helping him with the slide, and spoke to him in a very encouraging voice. She was telling him what a big boy he is and how well he was doing and then they went on to play other things, but the entire time the nanny was playing with him, and encouraging him in the playing he was doing. You could see in her eyes when she was speaking to the boy that she truly cared for him and was very proud when we talked briefly by the slide as we were helping our little ones down. It was awesome to see especially since most people just sit and watch the kids in that area.

Now that was heart-warming! I especially liked that you took notice that most caretakers just hang out off to the side but this Nanny actually got off her bum to engage the little boy. Hurray!

Anyone else notice that African American nannies tend to be really good? Maybe because so many of them are from the south where people are by nature just warmer and nicer. I think that the Caribbean nannies sully the status of the AA nannies. The confusion.

An American nanny from the south- that would be MY pick.

can we just agree that not all nannies are good? what does black, white or yellow really have to do with it. Would any of you have made the same remark if the original post said the nanny was white?
