Guy Mason in Glover Park - D.C.
I'm a SAHM so I'm often in the same places with the same nannies every week. Your nanny has black hair, speaks Spanish, and pushes your 2-3 year old daughter in a tan-seated Stokke Xplory stroller. Your daughter's white-blonde hair is usually done in a ponytail with the bangs clipped to the side, and I often see her wearing pink dresses that look like they came straight out of "The Magic Wardrobe" shop window on Wisconsin Ave. I saw your nanny today at the park (Guy Mason in Glover Park). Instead of trying to communicate with your daughter, who seemed desperate for attention, she was chatting with other nannies and was nowhere around when your daughter almost walked into the swing I was pushing my baby in. Of course I stopped the swing before it ever got close to hitting her. Then when your nanny finally let her swing, she just dropped your daughter into the swing without properly getting her legs through the holes of the swing, which looked unsafe. When your daughter wanted to stop, she had to hiss and scream to get the nanny to do it, which I found to be quite shocking. When she took her out of the swing, she did it so roughly that your daughter's leg got smacked on the hard rim of the swing, and the nanny did not apologize. Your daughter did not appear to be having any fun at the park. I don't know if she's such a fantastic nanny when I'm not around or what, but I think you should consider firing this uncaring woman and hiring a nanny who is actually willing to interact with your daughter.
