I saw your nanny this morning on her way to work. My son and I were waiting to get on the 5 train this morning from the pelham parkway station in the bronx, heading downtown. Your nanny (appeared to be mid to late 40's, african american or perhaps carribean, slender, chin length hair brushed back from her face) stopped me to compliment my son's behavior. She then struck up a conversation about your 10 month old little girl who she takes care of full time. She talked about her wonder at the intelligence of children and how each day with your she child learns something new and is continually amazed by children. She lovingly referred to her charge as "my girl". Your nanny also talked about how grateful she is to have this opportunity to see children in a new light now that her own children are grown (for id purposes, she mentioned that her youngest child just graduated from albert einstein medical school). I mentioned to her that I have a background in early childhood education and she took that as an opportunity to ask me about your child's interactions during gymboree classes. (She attends either gymboree or mygym on 72nd st). You are lucky. Youre nanny not only loves your little girl but obviously loves children in general and places great importance on what she does. It was a nice way to start my day!
