Roumaissa’s Bio

I never planned to babysit but over the years I have found that my parents' friends will drop their kids off no matter what and I quickly mastered the arts of finger painting and crustless sandwiches. I firmly believe in an active lifestyle for kids and everyone else. I grew up watching almost no TV and  I wouldn't want to subject a child to hours of lifeless observation. I take my job seriously but I'm still very laid back. I still want kids to learn, be able to trust me, and feel secure and content everyday while having fun. Growing up I wished my parents would take me out more so I take some pleasure taking kids out to the  Shedd or a walk through the zoo.

The only sitter I've ever felt 100% comfortable with!!!!!!!

I have never met a person with such an intuitive sense of the needs of a child. Roumaissa instantly (instantly - the minute she made eye contact!) put my son at ease. At thirteen months old, he was at the height of his "stranger-danger" period. He was even nervous around his own grandmother. But he took to Roumaissa in a flash. She has an amazing, comforting presence, and a confidence that I think he found reassuring.

I work from home, so I was able to hear her interaction through the day. She was attentive to his every need, his mood, when he was hungry, when he was bored with a book. I don't even think he realized there was a transition... she tended him the way I do myself.

How do you describe the comfort that comes from finally finding someone you can trust with your precious child? Roumaissa was an absolute joy.

I am attempting to put into words the many many things she brings to the table that are above the norm. She is obviously highly educated, and cultured. But I think the most important thing to me was that she treated my son like a growing person. So many people treat toddlers and infants as if they were incompetent, rather than just new to the world. With every interaction, I could tell she was seeing his skills and adapting to what he could and couldn't yet do. I truly felt that she could "see" him - all his potential wrapped up in a little mini person - and enjoyed the process of watching him explore the world.

Highly, highly recommended.
