Trudy worked for me for 2 months and 1 week as an overnight babysitter. In the beginning, she was punctual and attentive. She didn't have to cook, clean or doing any type of chore work. She was just in the house to make sure everything went well since my son is elementary school age. Within the first month, she changed our prearranged schedule and I had to find an alternative sitter for one day a week. Within the second month she changed her pay arrangement from hourly to weekly and was asking to be paid for days that she didn't work. There was other issues as well, she started showing up later then the agreed upon time. She likes to remind you of her age a lot, and that's perfectly fine, but she is a much older women. I wouldn't recommend Ms. Trudy for long term assignments, but for short term she would be wonderful.

Trudy has taken care of our 9 year old twins after school since August. She is extremely reliable. She does an excellent job of making sure they have a healthy snack and get their schoolwork done before we are home from work. She helps make sure they get to multiple activities during the week. She encourages them to play outside. Trudy is always up for a fun trip to the park or exploring to find something fun to do. She has been a huge help to me as I juggle work and family!

We were very lucky to find Trudy to watch out kids for our date night. Trudy managed to make all the kids feel special and all or looking forward to the next time she comes to sit with them.
