Karen is an EXCELLENT babysitter and I have the utmost trust and love for her as my kids sitter! We have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and 10 month old son and she's been sitting for us for over a year. She's absolutely dependable, warm-hearted, and nurturing with the kids. My daughter had extreme separation anxiety for almost 6 months and Karen was patient, gentle, and understanding, and my daughter warmed up to Karen very quickly. She shares my views on child-rearing (i.e., playing vs. letting them watch hours of tv, engaging them vs. letting them play alone all the time, etc.) and balances the kids like a pro. Karen is flexible and puts forward her best effort to accommodate us when we request last minute sitting jobs, she's always on time, and she always debriefs us when we get home as to what the kids did, ate, etc. While I want to keep her as my sitter for as long as possible, I know that she would be a great nanny for a family in Springfield looking for someone who really lives up to the standards we're all looking for in the person who cares for our precious kids while we're away. Please feel free to contact Karen and ask her for my reference info because I'd be happy to answer your questions! Kind regards, Stacey G.
