Detailed description of what you witnessed: The nanny was sitting with another hispanic nanny talking. The little boy looked to be about 18 months old. He kept trying to get out of his stroller but she wouldnt take him out. At one point the nannies took out pictures and were conversing about them. For about two minutes she did take the baby out of the stroller, she was holding him in a way that he was parallel to the ground and he kept trying to grab the cheerios that were on the street. ( park is partially paved so children can write in chalk, ride scooters on the paved road). She eventually set him down so that his knees were on the ground and she watched as he ate cheerios off of it.
I was so annoyed with this woman. Not one time was the toddler allowed to play on the equipment. She never got up and put him in the stroller or anything. Half of the time the little boy kept trying to get her attention, it just made me sad.
