Meet Wendy

Hello, I have been a stay-at-home mother for the past 23 years, having lovingly raised three children (ages 24, 21 and 17.) Although I have worked both professionally and part-time for several companies, I found that caring for my children and others has always been the job which I loved the most. At this time, my children are grown, college expenses have begun to creep in and my availability day to day has increased. Most recently, I have provided childcare for two families with very different needs. My first Care.com job was for a wonderful little boy who I adored,... more
Hello, I have been a stay-at-home mother for the past 23 years, having lovingly raised three children (ages 24, 21 and 17.) Although I have worked both professionally and part-time for several companies, I found that caring for my children and others has always been the job which I loved the most. At this time, my children are grown, college expenses have begun to creep in and my availability day to day has increased. Most recently, I have provided childcare for two families with very different needs. My first Care.com job was for a wonderful little boy who I adored, in the home of a family in Keller. I worked for the same family from the time that their son was 6 months old and continued until he was 2. I loved watching him grow. As expected, the day to day care changed as he got older. As an infant we spent our days primarily within the home, where I loved caring for him and watching him grow and reach new milestones daily. As he grew and became more mobile, we were able to enjoy time reading, going for walks, playing at the playground, going to the library, and enjoying playtime with other children. It was important to be very flexible with the hours that I provided to the family due to their work schedules continually changing. Both parents were emergency room doctors. With the family's changing work schedule, and upcoming maternity leave they were not able to provide me with a minimum of 20 hours of work each week. They were also uncertain what their needs would be in the future. This forced me to pursue new employment. I am confident that they will be willing to provide an excellent reference to future employers. Most recently I worked as a fill in nanny for a family with a wonderfully sweet 4-month-old boy. We spent our days with feeding, diapering, tummy time, singing, books and going for walks when he was not napping. I adored arriving at the home each morning to see his smiling sweet face, holding him, and showing him as much love as I would have my own children. I recognize how important it is to find the right person to care for your children. If you are interested in finding a experienced, loving, energetic, responsible, and mature caregiver, with years of experience raising her own children, I would be an ideal fit. My preference would be to care for a newborn, or children under the age of 24 months, 3 days per week. Thanks so much for your consideration! I look forward to my next opportunity!

Wendy was wonderful when we met and interviewed her and we would have loved to hire her but we decided we needed a full time Nanny so we couldn't make it work but some lucky person will find her!

Wendy L. responds:
Thank you so much Sharon for taking the time to put the note on Care. com. I so enjoyed meeting you as well. I completely understand how a family's needs can change once the interview process begins. I have been very fortunate in the past to work with some amazing families that I have found on Care. com. Thanks again!
Jessica S. says:
Our family was so blessed to find Wendy. She made me feel very confident about leaving our newborn as I started back to work. She is a wonderful nanny and a beautiful person. Anyone would be blessed to have her.

Hugs and love to your precious boy!
