This happened Saturday at about 1:30 PM EST.
I have to start by saying today was probably the most beautiful day of our summer, low humidity, blue skies, slightest breeze. The day was perfect. Many families and children were out celebrating this day by congregating at parks, tussling in the grass and picnicking.
I noticed an exception to this rule in the form of one nanny who had the charge of twins. The twins were in a side by side double stroller with beige canvas and black accents. The twins were a boy and a girl, I think, but may have been two boys. The twins had brown hair, one had curly hair and one had straight hair. The child with the curly hair had light colored eyes.
The nanny was a hispanic woman, possibly puerto rican. She is identifiable by these characteristics; she had several moles on her face, she was petite but very "thick" as they say and she was missing two teeth. I think two. Her teeth were what you would call "a mess".
The twins were about 2 years old. Maybe not quite, but near. And the nanny found a seat on a bench and parked the children right next to her. The nanny then takes out a People Magazine and reads it cover to cover. The children wiggle and squirm. I can hear one of the children say "Out" and "get out?" in a really sweet, hopeful voice. Nope. The nanny continues reading. And? She has a huge bag of jelly beans and she keeps feeding the kids. Handfuls of jellybeans. She was so fast and free with her big bag of jelly beans that when she blindly handed them to the children, they would drop in the stroller. It didn't matter, there were plenty and the entire time I was at the park with my child, your children sat strapped in being force fed straight sugar!
