I would like to report a lame duck nanny. This nanny was outrageously uninvolved with your child. How uninvolved was she? Well, when your child was crying, another nanny and I sought to locate his parent or caregiver and she did not respond. She was found later heavily engaged in both her ipod tunes and a stack of magazines. Your son was left free to wander around the library unsupervised. Upon finding him tearing pages out of books, a nanny accosted him and caused him to cry. She then tried to console him. It could have been much worse. Strangers dealing with your child's discipline because your nanny is sitting on her keister with ear buds in her ears? Is she making the standard $15 an hour that so many of those lazy babysitters charge? It doesn't matter, whatever she makes, it is way too much. I should also note that when the sitter and child were reunited, the boy was still teary eyed and attempted to fold himself into the nanny but she put her hand up and patted his chest, but to keep him away from any sort of hug or affection. It was a subtle yet very distinguishing episode of body language. Read this, YOUR CHILD's NEEDS ARE NOT BEING MET BY YOUR NANNY. Was it your nanny? She appeared to be Peruvian in descent, long hair, very flat face, high cheekbones, medium height and weight wearing a zip up white Abercrombie sweatshirt in white and blue faded jeans with knock off UGG style boots. The child, her charge was a boy of 3.5 with a bowl style haircut, blonde hair, brown cords, blue shirt with a football design on it and tan hiking boots with red plaid accents at the ankle.
