Hi Monica is great with our toddler. He is always tuckered out by the end of the day. She reads to him and got him to nap well. He loves to see her :) we will continue to hire Monica! Thanks! Ocean beach family

We had decided to use Sittercity when our friend was unable to watch our 4 year old son. It was our first time using Sittercity and hiring someone we didn't know. Monica was quick with her email responses and very sweet. She arrived 15 minutes prior to her start time like she said she would and my son absolutely adored her! He asked where she was the next morning when he woke up. When I told him that she went home, he said he wanted her to babysit him again that day! She kept me up-to-date with text messages while we were out and followed my son's nighttime routine as I had specified. She's definitely a keeper for us!!! Thank you Monica!!!!

I felt really comfortable leaving my 3 month old son with Monica. We came home and she even had done our dishes . She was simply wonderful.

I was in need of a babysitter on short notice to watch my sick 11 month old and decided to use Monica after seeing all her glowing reviews on her profile. My child was running a fever between 100 and 102 and I told her to not take her temperature "too often" because she has had recent ear infections and her ears are sensitive. Unfortunately, I should've clarified this with her more. From when I left at 6:30 AM to when I called at 10:30 AM to check on her she had not taken her temperature at all. I ask her to take her temperature 10:30 and it was 103.5. Her response to me was "Had u have given me specific times I would have followed your schedule as I do". And she is right, I should've given her a more specific schedule. But what is scary about the situation is that Monica did not have enough good judgment to take her temperature more than every four hours when when my child is extremely hot to the touch or take any additional actions unless instructed to do so. As a parent it's impossible to write down every schedule and every scenario and I expect my babysitters to have good judgment and if they don't know to call and ask me. I wish the story stopped here but unfortunately, it only gets worse. After the incident with the temperature I began to question her judgment and decided to come home early so I notified her that I was on my way home. Once I arrived home I didn't notice anything else wrong. After she left and went to use the restroom and noticed cat litter on the floor. I began to inspect further and saw cat hair, food and feces on my bathroom floor. I do not own any animals so this was disturbing to me. At this point my only conclusion is that she decided to bring her cat to her babysitting job and did not tell me that she was doing so, which I would not of approved. I not only question Monica's judgment, but also her trustworthiness and reliability. I would caution any parents wanting to utilize Monica's services.

I just met Monica this weekend for a last minute job I posted and I feel so lucky to have found her! She's is a genuine Sweetheart. Was super warm and sweet with my girls and even volunteered to fold my laundry while the girls slept at night. She tidied up around the house in little ways that i So appreciate. I cannot wait to have her over again. She is welcome in my home anytime! She's truly a gem.

Monica has recently moved to New Smyrna Beach from California. We were here first baby sitting job in Florida. So happy we hired her. She had excellent reviews from families in California, and we were not disappointed. She is warm, friendly, caring, confident and interacts naturally with children. My children, all five of them, loved her and felt safe and comfortable with her from the start. Monica came at very short notice and had to drive a considerable distance to come to our home. She has a great work ethic and is very reliable and trustworthy. I highly recommend her and hope her business in Florida thrives!

Monica came on very short notice to watch our son Knox. She was very polite and on time. She also cleaned up around the house. Most importantly she was great with our little angel. We will most definitely use Monica in the future.

Monica came through at the last minute for us when my son got sick and couldn't go to daycare. We found her on sittercity and hired her based on her reviews alone, since we didn't have time to call references. She showed up on time, bonded well with my 1-year-old, asked appropriate questions. She seemed attentive and caring. The day went well, and my son was a happy kid when I returned. Monica even folded our laundry while my son napped! I'd definitely recommend her.

I am a first time mom and was pretty nervous about someone new watching my baby. I was really comfortable with Monica watching my 6 month old girl the moment we met her. We will definitely ask her to watch our baby again!

We have 4 kids from age 11- 1 3 with special needs from mobility issues to autism - She came with short notice (2 days) our regular sitter was unavailable. I was super nervous and had a mile long list of instructions. She nailed it. Everyone was fed - did their chores - homework and in bed on time. Also she did clean up from the day there was no toys to be picked up or dishes to clean - stove top was scrubbed. It was nice not needing to do anything when I got home. Wont be looking for a second sitter!

Monica was amazing with our kids. It was a short notice request that went past midnight. She was right on time and when she arrived our kids warmed up to her quickly. She read books to our kids before putting them to bed and even put the dishes away that were in the dishwasher. (didn't think I would notice? Thank you! :) ) If your looking for a babysitter Monica is the right person. I will be using her again in the future.

Monica is always willing to babysit even at the last minute. I feel very comfortable leaving my kids with her. Her house is always clean and the kids love her toys and trips to the park. I recommend her to anyone in the area.

We have used Monica twice so far and plan to use her continuously while we are still stationed in San Diego. Monica is great with our boys. Our youngest, who has recently reached his separation anxiety issue from his momma, went straight to Monica the first night. Our oldest son when he woke up the morning after asked where "Miss Monica" went and asked if she was coming back. She is very reliable and punctual. And is almost always ready for last minute help. She's a great babysitter!

As a first time mom Monica was able to make me feel very at ease leaving my 3 month old with her. It was obvious that she was extremely comfortable with my baby. We will definitely be asking her to take care of our little guy again! ~Lane & Kelly
