The Kneaded Bread in Port Chester, NY

Great Nanny Sighting in Port Chester, NYI wanted to post this about a wonderful nanny or Au pair I encountered at The Kneaded Bread, a bakery in Port Chester, New York. This happened on Friday, (1/25) at approximately 3:00 PM in the afternoon and involved a European nanny or Au pair. She was thin, average height, wore no make up, jeans and her hair in a short pony tail. Hair was brown. She had with her a toddler and a little baby of about 9-10 (corrected) months. The toddler, I cannot recall that much of, but the baby was blonde and I think-dressed in pink. Sorry, I should have sent this in Friday! They were sitting at a window booth and chatting together and sharing a pastry. Such a sweet, sweet nanny she seemed to be. Truly loved those children. The little baby was sitting on the table and the toddler was in a chair next to the nanny, they stared out the window and the nanny answered questions about cars and people passing by. I was drawn to this scene, not because it involved a nanny or a child, but because within this bustling shop, this nanny had carved out this little zone where just she and the children existed, taking comfort in each other and delighting in their confections. I should like to mention, that I happen to have a very negative impression of Au pairs based on some of the experiences of my friends, but to imagine this person with the accent -possibly French- was an Au pair, well, I should be so lucky!

Oh please, the Au pairs I am sure have negative feelings about working for your friends. You really think it works one way.

I didn't realize au pairs hung there. That place was voted best place for a lothario to pick up a sugar mama by the TTB.

Come on guys, for once it is positive and you just try to find something negative. What a bunch of dippy gossip queens! And go ahead and flame me, bring it on!

I am sorry, I should have first given props to the nanny. She is very brave to travel in there.
A whole lot of haughty mommies, if you know what I mean. Kudos to the great nanny.
