Kris agreed to help us out by watching our two girls (6 and 4) for full days, covering a gap from the end of summer camp in July to/thru the start of school in late August. She is absolutely FANTASTIC. My girls adore "Ms. Kris" and my husband and I are just so impressed by her energy and her conscientious, down-to-earth and fun-loving personality.

Our kids loved her!!! I felt comfortable and best of all after 3 days with my kids they wanted her to come back!!! I highly recommend her , she has tons of energy and is mature and can make sound decisions!!

My daughter has a great time visiting Kris! She has always shown great enthusiasm with my daughter. I never have to worry about her not having a good time at the sitters. Kris always finds something fun and entertaining to do with the kids, whether it's arts and crafts or playing outside :)
Thanks Kris!

Although I concur that when she shows up that the kids enjoy her, however she has been dishonest and quit over a text msg with no notice stating she was not ready to go back to work and that watching children has been mentally stressful on her. I caution anyone who would hire her that she appears to be fine and will tell you everything is OK and then leave you in a jam with your job by quitting and not giving even one day notice. I also would advise you that her reports of being mentally stressed out by watching children as a job causes me concern.

Provider's Response

I was going to ask sittercity.com to delete this rating. However, I will address it. While it is true that I quit with no notice, what is not mentioned is that I was with this family for almost two months and tried several times to remedy the situation. When I began working with them I was told certain hours and duties. Within the first week this proved to not be true. I stressed to them that I needed to leave by a certain time in order to pick my children up (and only accepted this job on the condition that they WOULD be home by that time) and they were repeatedly late, causing me to pay late fees at the school daycare. I also was given an excessive amount of housework to do that was NOT part of the initial job description. I spoke with the mother several times and was given nothing short of a run around - excuses and assurances that this would change. Obviously, it did not. I agree that quitting with no notice was not professional. However, I was more than flexible during the time I was there - I gave them several chances to rectify the situation and nothing was done. I came in early (because I understand that things do come up), I stayed late numerous times and I cleaned up the house (dishes for a family of 8, family room clean up, sorting clothes, kitchen cleanup, bathroom cleanup, etc) daily. I also did laundry which wasn't part of the job description in the beginning. Overall, I gave it my best and then some which is quite a bit more than most would do in this situation. If you'd like to ask me more questions about this, please feel free to do so. Thanks.
