Tess was amazing! She babysat for my 18 month old nephew during my wedding and he absolutely loved her as did his mother. We felt entirely comfortable leaving him with her from the very first second. You can just tell she is super sweet the moment you meet her. She was really prompt (early even) and just sets you at ease even with all the chaos going on at a wedding. We did not worry about my nephew at all. I only wish we had more opportunities to hire her!

Tess was a great sitter! She babysat 8 (yup, 8!) kids ranging from 2-6 years old while we had a New Years party and did a great job. She kept the kids entertained, safe, and happy! We would love to have Tess sit for us again :)
