Mary’s Bio

I was taking care of several infants  but they are all growing up.  The youngest is now 3 years old - oh, it goes so quickly.  I have to say, I love the tiny ones.  They are a never ending source of wonder and change!  Every age is terrific but the newborns are especially dear to me. 
I babysat constantly through my teens and 20s, then married when I was 30 and had my own son.   He graduated from UMBC, magna cum laude, and is now working on his Ph.D in Manchester England. My picture shows me with my little boy -- all grown up!
I was the primary caretaker for my invalid mother-in-law and father-in-law, but with their  passing I find that I would really like to be with children, take care of someone who needs me and of course earn a dollar or two in the process. 

If you have any questions, feel free to call. 240-418-2170

Mary is excellent with our 2 year old and has very reasonable rates! Our son loves her and she is a very laidback, easy to deal with lady.

Comfortable and fun and my kids thought so too! Recommend highly!

Mary is a warm and caring person. My son had a lot of fun with her and, soon after she left, was asking when she'd be back! She even brought a Mother's Day card with her for him to sign for me, which I thought was very considerate. Plus games and pictures for him to draw. We'll be calling her again.

Mary took great care of our little guy. She made us feel comfortable as this was her first time sitting for us. We will call her again!

Mary was my part time babysitter during this past school year. She took care of my 10 year old son and 7 year old daughter before and after school. She was always on time and willing to do whatever was needed above and beyond the call of duty. I have also seen her with small children and she is excellent with the little ones.

Mary really came to our rescue when our regular afterschool babysitter had her baby a month early. I needed to find someone to fill in for two months right away, and Mary took on the job. She is an extremely reliable, kind, intelligent person. And she hit it off with my 9-year-old twins right away -- she has a great sense of humor that my boys really appreciated. I can highly recommend Mary.

Mary is just wonderful! Today was the first time she watched my 15 mo old, and I couldn't be happier. She arrived on time (a littler early in fact), was immediately friendly, and not at all intimidated by my son's scowl at her. When I left, my little guy was crying (his norm when Mama leaves), but Mary sent me a text a bit later letting me know he was happy and playing. It allowed me to be able to enjoy time spent with my other son at his school field trip. When I arrived home, I could hear my son laughing from the playroom. I got a report about his day (lunch, diapers, nap, playtime) which was very nice. All this, and her rates are very reasonable as well. Want a great childcare provider? Mary is the perfect package!
