I was on vacation in Scottsdale and Amanda watched my 11 month old each day for 3-4 hours. Amanda was always on time and a great communicator. She is very intuitive, she knew if my baby was hungry or bored or needed a change of scenery and took care of all of her needs! She would text me lot of photos as per my request and really put my mind at ease. Amanda was so kind as to buy my baby some apple sauce when she needed an extra snack. She really is so great and I could tell my baby loved spending time with her from all the smiles! I'd be happy to provide a reference for anyone considering using her services! Sarah :)
Amanda has been an incredible sitter for us! She is very reliable and our kids and dog absolutely adore her! They can't wait for her to come over!!!!!
Amanda is a great sitter! She was easy to get in touch with, on time, and came with makeup and dresses to play with. My daughter loved her and we will miss her!
Amanda is a very responsible, fun, caring sitter. Our 2 kids (4.5 and 8) LOVE her and can't wait for her to come over and play. She constantly keeps them busy and having fun. Amanda is always on time and goes above and beyond for our kids. We're going to miss her!
Amanda is a great sitter, my children (9,6, and 3) always looked forward to our date nights. She followed my instructions and always took the time to clean up after them which is important to me as a mom! She does a great job!
Amanda is an excellent sitter and a wonderful addition to our family! She watches our 2 boys on a regular basis and they LOVE her. They run to her for hugs in the morning and again before she leaves. I come home to all kinds of projects and crafts- they have a fun, full day! We hope to continue working with Amanda for as long as we can!
I was very nervous to get a sitter. I'd always had my family watch my kids. Moving far from family, I decided to look on here. I found Amanda. She is great with my 4 kids (8 months, 2 1/2, 5 & 6) Very reassuring to me & never had any problems at all!! My kids love her & always get very excited to have her come watch them. She's great with them, not afraid to get down & play with them. :-) I highly recommend her!!
So blessed to have found this sitter! Amanda is and will always be my go to sitter! My kids absolutely adore her, and actually ask me when am I going out again so Mrs. Amanda can come back over. I gave her 5 stars because without a doubt she's reliable, diligently on time and always wearing a wonderful smile. I have already recommended Amanda to a couple people, and when someone asks who is my sitter, I always send them to her!
Amanda watched our 2 boys for the evening while we danced the night away at the ball. She was wonderful. Our boys absolutely loved her. The keep asking me when she can come back and babysit again. Thank you Amanda for the great night out! I highly recommend Amanda!
