Meet Madalyn

My name is Madalyn Grissom and I am looking for occasional babysitting jobs. When I was 13 I started babysitting and that eventually turned into becoming a nanny. I have experience with children of all ages and love pets. I also have no problems with doing housework if there is free time during work hours. Getting to and from your house will not be a problem, because I have a car. I am CPR and first aid certified, I have a basic background check, and I have 12 five star ratings on my profile!

We hired Madalyn to take care of our 6 yr old for a few days/wk. She's professional, friendly, and on time. She does a multitude of activities with her inside and outside including homework, games, bikerides and trips to the park. Our daughter got along with her right away which reinforced our decision. We would recommend her 😊 Lisa S.

Madalyn was amazing! She is super friendly, very professional, and always on time. She watched my 4 kids (3, 5, 7, 8) on several occasions, and sometimes for over 12 hours; she totally nailed it every time. Madalyn was very patient and interactive with my kids, she took them to several parks and played with them instead of just pulling up Netflix for her entire stay. I would recommend Madalyn to anyone looking for a great, trust-worthy sitter. If she can handle 4 young children with ease, she can handle anything!

Madalyn has been a fantastic babysitter for my son who has special needs. She came and spent some time with him in advance of the first date I needed her, and was always on time and willing to come even at the very early hours I needed her. My son loved her, and wanted her to come back from the first meeting he had with her. She made it easy for me to get out the door quickly to get to work on time. We look forward to having her babysit again in the future.

Madalyn was amazing. My husband and I needed a last minute babysitter for my two highly energetic boys, ages 6 and 8. Madalyn arrived early, asked all of the essential questions, and the boys took to her immediately. She played with them outside for hours, kept them smiling and safe, cooked and cleaned, and was so flexible with our schedule. I cannot recommend her enough!

Madalyn is a great sitter and very professional. Kids loved her and can't wait for her to come back.

I hired Madalyn to watch my 13-month-old, whom I never really leave with anybody. She arrived on time both times and is great with my son. I feel so comfortable leaving him with her, which is saying a lot. Each time, I have come home to a happy and content baby. The second time she came, my son ran right up to her and seemed excited that she was here! I would definitely recommend Madalyn.

Madalyn has been amazing for my family. I found myself in need of someone on quite short notice and she came to my rescue. She worked for us for over 6 months caring for my 5 year old son and he loves her! Only stopped because I wasn't in need of the care anymore. She was always on time and ready to play. It was such a relief to know that my son was with someone so responsible, respectful, and an all-around good person. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a great babysitter. And I think my son would have to agree.

Love Madalyn!! She provided a safe and nurturing environment. Our kids had a great time with her and we will be using her again!!

Madalyn has watched our children ages 3 and 2,a few times and we absolutely love her. She always arrives early and is very flexible to our needs. The kids are excited when she comes over which makes leaving so much easier. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

We loved Madalyn! We've used her twice, both time arrived on time and always a super positive person. The second time we used her we had some friends in town and she watched all 4 of the children (ages 2 & under). Madalyn gave me the number of a family she has babysat for and they raved about her and I can see why. It brought me great ease that her references checked out, she is background checked and she has an endless amount of experience with children.

Madalyn is wonderful with children. She babysits my six month old son a couple of times each week. She is very patient, kind, and attentive to his needs. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great sitter.

Madalyn was great. She arrived on time and spent the day taking my Girls aged 6 & 7 to the park and even baked with them. My Girls went to bed crying because they were exhausted and missed her already. I have already booked her again!
