I Live in Wharton, I have been babysitting for 16 Years, and I love children. I was in college for interior design so I'm very creative and love arts and crafts. I love to read and think it is an extremely important activity that everyone should do. I love animals, I myself have a dog named Walker. I have my own car and I have a clean driving record. I am a friendly warm hearted person looking to become another member to your family.

Janine is a great sitter - my kids thoroughly enjoyed playing with her - they didn't even realize I was gone. I was very nervous to hire someone that I didn't know - but I'm grateful I used Sittercity and hired Janine! She was fantastic - and when I returned home - the kids were happy playing and the house was neat!!!! She is a great sitter and I highly recommend her to others - and I'm a pretty over protective mother!

Janine did not show up for our babysitting sitting job.

Provider's Response

Not a normal occurrence, I got a flat tire and was unable to make it. My sincerest apologizes.

Janine was very relaxed and a natural with my 1 year old. She was professional and flexible. She was supposed to sit for my two youngest kids (age 1 and 5). Instead, she ended up watching the 2 little ones and their big brother who was sick with a fever and home from school. My house was cleaner when I came home than when I left. No kidding...she straightened out my messy kitchen and family room. Most importantly, my kids loved her! I'll definitely call on Janine again.

Janine is a wonderful sitter!
1) She showed up early;
2) She won the hearts and trust of two very picky children;
3) "She made the best grilled cheese ever!
4) The kids didn't want her to leave;
5) I had nothing to clean up upon her departure;
Need I say more?

My 3 kids like Janine very much and so do I. I've already call her back for an another sitting. I trust her and I recommend her.

Janine is a great addition to our household. My ten month old is in love with her and my three year old thinks she's an art teacher. When I emerge from my basement office, the kitchen is clean and the kids are happy. Janine's parenting instincts seem to mirror my own and we constantly check in so that we're on the same page. Because it's a long drive to my house, Janine's arrival time isn't always exact, so if you have to leave by a certian time, you might want to discuss. Overall, a treasure.

Provider's Response

I work for this family everyday and I can honestly say I feel like I am part of their family. I have witnessed their 10 month old baby start walking and that may be the most amazing things I have ever seen in my life. Phoebe and I communicate I what we think is best for her children and its very comforting to know we are on the same page when things get crazy. It is true my getting there in the morning is not always exact. I will claim to be not a morning person, but I am usually only around 10 minutes late on those days due to traffic. Overall I love working with this family.

Janine has babysat for my 2 kids (ages 4 and 2) several times now, and they love her - which is saying something for my kids who usually think getting a babysitter is right up there with going to the dentist. She is very sweet and patient and fun. Plus, she straightened up our mess of a playroom before I got home - yeah!!

Janine is a great sitter and individual. She has helped out with my 3 month old and was terrific with him. She is very reliable and we will definitely use her again.

Janine has been a very good babysitter for us. My kids like to play with her. She's done evening jobs when she's had to put the kids to bed, and she's also done a day job when my sister was visiting where she took care of all 5 kids. I feel very comfortable knowing Janine is taking care of my kids. - Kate P.

Janine sat for my two children several times, and then dropped off the face of the earth! I had scheduled her to sit on several Monday afternoons for my daughter, confirmed everything through email with her, and then she never showed up, called or emailed when she was supposed to be here. I haven't heard from her since even after calling her. Too bad - she was nice when she came.

- Beth C.

Provider's Response

Back in March when I missed the scheduled dates I was dealing with sudden tragic family issues. It is unlike myself to have scheduled sitting and miss it, but My head at the time was not in the right place. Losing a loved one sometimes makes you a little absent minded. I'd like to apologize for missing that day.
