Angie is one of my best babysitters ever and is now available because we have just gotten a live-in nanny. She is SO wonderful with children I can't emphasize this enough. I have a four-year-old and two-year-old-twins, all girls. She has two elementary and middle school-aged boys of her own. This gives her a range of experience with children of all ages and sexes. She also has breadth of experience, as she has been working for me two or three days a week for almost four years. She even did some overnights for me when my twins were newborns.
I would say her greatest strength is her sweet and kind personality. Her manner with children is supremely gentle and kind, but she has a resolve and confidence underneath that derives from her many years of experience.
-Very reliable and trustworthy: she drives my children everywhere. She can take all three of them to the Nature Museum, Discovery Place, the Library, or the Park BY HERSELF!!! (I have twin 2-year-olds and a four-year-old who are challenging right now).
-Very smart and intuitive with discipline and controlling sibling rivalry. She accomplishes this without ever raising her voice.
-She knows how to parent, not just watch children.
-Sweet and kind temperament
-Easy to get along with
-Loving and caring manner (she gives and gets lots of hugs; my kids climb all over her).
-She keeps the house clean, always picking up the children's toys and keeping the kitchen and playroom spotless and completely organized.
-She knows how hard it is to raise children and run a household (dishes, laundry, making lunches etc.). She is more than willing to do any light housework task and proactively asks me what I need done for the day. I have become spoiled by her making school lunches for me in the morning.
-She almost never misses a day of work.
-She is dependable and on time.
-She is willing to care for sick children
-She has been reliably caring for my children for almost 4 years.
-She is a good and careful driver (I have ridden with her many times.)
How she spends her time:
- She took my girls on walks in the stroller and to parks when they were younger. Now she drives them to an assortment of activities.
- She takes them to the Library, Discovery place, The Nature Museum, Gymboree, My Gym, Monkey Joe s, and the pool.
- She enjoys reading to them.
- She loves to draw and create crafts with them.
- She encourages good eating habits at mealtimes.
- She keeps them occupied with active or creative activities, not TV.
I highly recommend Angie without reservation. Any family who hires her will be lucky to have her.
Please call me if you have any questions. I have had many babysitters in the past four years, and Angie is one of my very favorites. She is like a member of my family. I will always stay in touch with her as my children and I have grown very close to her. I will be happy to get into more detail with you over the phone. To get my phone number, please message her (ask for both home and mobile.)
