Also, you will get a feeling of safety and security. I am honest, reliable, tenacious, happy, trustworthy, clean and loyal. I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs! And I would treat your child as if they were my own. I have a reliable new car and would be willing to make errands, pick up/drop off kids for school or activities, do light house work, and some cooking. Although be warned, I'm no Gordon Ramsey I am a new mom and ideally, I would like to bring my son who is 18 months old, with me while I care for your child(ren) as well. But I do realize this may not work with every family, and that's okay, too. My boy is such a good kid. He requires my attention, but also very independent and loves to play in groups. He loves to be a part of all the fun excitement and to be engaged with other kids. I do have experience with this situation and it has seemed to work really well. Actually, he has become an asset. Children seem to love him as well, and it teaches other kids patience, gentle play, and how to act around others. He would be with me everyday, unless my mom can watch him. That would depend on your schedule. I have cared for kids all my life and absolutely adore them. I am CPR certified and went to EMT school. I lived on Maui for seven years and had my own house cleaning business so I do house work as well.

Santiago S. says:
I have two daughters (8 and 9) that Kira provided after-school care for. We have been through our share of nannies over the past two years, and every time I ask the kids who their favorite nanny is, they always say "Kira!!!". They love her. She is caring, fun, attentive, and I felt very confident that my kids were getting the best care possible (also our house was always clean when I came home). From time... More

Missy K. says:
Kira is excellent! Our little 2 year old LOVES Kira and her son! Which is huge because his typical response is "no" when you ask if he has fun but after a day with Kira he says "yes"! Kira does a great job giving attention to our little man even with her little guy right there! I especially love our guy being around another mom and baby, that way he has to learn how to share with others! Plus, she sent me pictures... More

Tiffany N. says:
After a few days of messaging back and forth, changing the time to better meet her schedule, she didn't bother to show up to the interview. I had a 12 week old baby in tow and didn't appreciate the waste of my time. Bummer! I even texted back to make sure everything was alright, but got no response.

Kira R. responds:
I'm so sorry Tiffany you are absolutely right. I was on my way to meet you. I called home to check in and I got word of devastating news. I broke down and had to just turn around and go straight home. Everything in my brain switched off, for the next few days. I am deeply so sorry. I have always been very reliable to always show up to meetings. I felt awful since. I deserve this negative feedback, and you deserved... More
