Physical description of caregiver: Male, mid/late 40's, glasses, average/stocky build with a prominent belly, thickish short dark hair
I know this is a husband watching his own children because I have heard him make a comment about how the mother "brings home the bacon" and he watches the kids. He is a bit loud.
Physical description of involved child/children: two white boys. They look very close in age. Perhaps they are fraternal twins with one twin appearing older than the other, or maybe they are 8 months and a very small 16 months. The youngest has light hair, and not that much of it. The oldest boy has dark hair.
Address or venue of observed incident: Quack's Bakery 411 E 43rd street in Austin, Tx
Date and time of incident: Numerous times always in the afternoon around 3:00-5:00
Detailed description of what you witnessed: Your husband parks the boys outside of the bakery in their stroller while he goes inside to get a coffee. Sometimes this is five minutes, sometimes it is much longer. I have seen the boys sit for quite awhile. Last time I saw them your husband was sitting down inside the coffee shop and it took him a long time to respond to the cries of the younger son...probably because they were parked OUTSIDE.
It appears as though you live in the area, because I have heard people at the coffee shop ask him about the kids and call him by name. The first time I saw him he had only ONE boy in the stroller. Someone sitting next to me asked about the other boy. Your husband informed the man that the younger son was taking a nap. So, unless you have a nanny at home your youngest son was left all alone in the house while your husband and oldest son walked down to the bakery.
Description of vehicle, bag, stroller that may aid in identifying involved caregiver: Red and black double jogging-type stroller.
