We adored her! She was prompt and loving to my little dog! I would definitely call her again!

Laura has been watching our toddler daughter regularly for close to a year now and she's awesome. We feel completely comfortable leaving our baby with her. She's very attentive, spoils not only the baby but our cat as well. She always has fun things planned. Laura has been a huge blessing in our lives and I highly recommend.
