Received Wednesday, September 24, 2008.
I was just in a Starbucks on 23rd off of Park Ave south (Wednesday 9/24 3:30pm) and saw a pretty young woman aupair or sitter (pretty sure was not a mom) with blond hair in an pony tail or bun with two kids, one infant in a carrrier that could have been and one 2-3 yr old sleeping in a grey mclaren with a red boogie board on the back. The aupair left the older child sleeping in the stroller at the front of the store near the doors in a very crowded starbucks while she waited for her coffee at the bar all the way in the back of the store.
She checked on him once or twice but he was definetly out of her view most of the time. While the sitter seems sweet, I would absolutely not want my sleeping child alone by an exit in a crowded starbucks in new york city. If this is your sitter please have a talk with her.
