Razia has been an invaluable caretaker for our son. To this day, and he has
known her for 14 months now, he gets so excited when
she shows up I have to be careful he doesn't jump out of my arms while we are
walking up the steps to the apartment.

I am a stay-at-hom-mom and do consulting work. Thus my son and I are together
every day, all day until I get a project. Then I need to be gone for 10 hour
days for various amounts of days. Going from just me to a caregiver can be a big
adjustment, but Razia has made it easy.

She started working for us when he was five months old, working with us through
many milestones. During the baby food stage, she was game to make homemade
purees for which I had found recipes. When he was older and we started solids,
she was helpful in preparing meals for him.

I can tell by the way he lights up when he first sees her and when we are in the
transition time before I leave, that she is very interactive with him. He
points, babbles and pulls her to his toys. He wants to be held by her and
doesn't cry when I leave. They enjoyed walks in the stroller when he was
younger, then when he was old enough for the playground, they tackled that. She
was game to take him to classes as I requested and enjoyed reading, singing and
playing games when they were at home.

Razia kept detailed notes of feedings, naps, diapers when he was young and
continued to make note of food, naps and activities as he aged. She filled out a
detailed nap spreadsheet I kept to follow my son's sleep patterns and respected
my diligent efforts to keep him on a fairly tight schedule.

We can tell she truly cares for our son, and our minds are at ease when she is
with him. We feel lucky to have Razia in our lives and our sons.

Razia has been our weekend babysitter for about a year and we cannot say enough good things about her. My girls are 7 and 3 and they get so excited when we tell them that Razia will be coming to babysit-they can't wait for us to leave! Razia is always prompt and very flexible and understanding if our plans change. She always goes out of her way to leave our apartment in better condition then she found it! She frequently accompanies us on our family outings and we consider her one of our family. Working with Razia has been a joy and a pleasure, she is a gem of a person.

All around all star!

Razia babysat for us for nearly a year (after which we moved away and recommended her to several friends). She was absolutely terrific. While she mostly babysat at night, she was wonderful with our baby and then toddler son, helping read books, feed his evening bottle, and put him to sleep (no easy feat). She was wonderful with him and he really took to her. She has a nice, calm, and friendly personality (she even got our son a bday gift!) For parents, razia is extremely prompt and responsible (including sending hourly texts as I requested). She was flexible with last minute requests and returning later than expected (we would text we were running late). Most of all, with her significant experience with kids, I definitely trusted that she would make the right decision should a serious situation occur. You can relax knowing razia is at home looking after your little ones!
