Ruth’s Bio

I have been a schoolteacher and a youth minister, and there were always plenty of kids hanging out at my house while my daughters were growing up. Now I am a happy grandma.

I enjoy the company of children, and know how to keep them safe at home, comfortable when sick, and learning while they are entertained. Infants are safe and cuddled with me.

I charge $15 an hour for my time, and have a special rate for families who call me more often.

Ruth is Awesome!! She has provided care for all three of my children and they love her! On two occasions I contacted Ruth at the last minute looking for someone to watch my kids and she always came through for me and my husband. She did lots of fun outdoors things with my children and definitely kept them interested. Ruth will always be my first call when I need a babysitter.

Ruth is wonderful! She took terrific care of our 2 month old today & provided sweet text updates on how baby was doing while we were away. We arrived home to a very happy baby :) Thank you, Ruth! I will definitely be calling again!

I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful Ruth is! I have worked with her twice now, and am more than impressed. She has gone above and beyond what was asked of her... she literally saved me two days in a row! I didn't have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend her to anyone.

Ruth is incredible! She was very flexible and accommodating. She really helped me out when my son was ill and I needed a last-minute sitter. He absolutely adores her too!

Ruth was available for a last minute babysitting job. I left a message on her phone and she called us back and was so pleasant and easy to talk to over the phone and in person. She arrived exactly on time. She is a real natural with kids, and she took care of our little girl and put her to sleep with songs so my husband and i could enjoy a night off together. Ruth even tidied up our home as our little girl went to sleep early and she had extra time on her hands. We couldn't be happier with our night off and would not hesitate to call Ruth again! Thanks Ruth!

No show & no contact :(

I texted Ruth the day before the job and didn't get a response. I texted her again when she was 5 minutes late and then called (no answer) when she was 15 minutes late. My daughter and I were very much looking forward to picking up Nana at the airport while Ruth watched our son (she arrives after his bed time). This made for a VERY disappointed 3-year old. :(

Provider's Response

I have never missed a sitter commitment before, and am horrified that this happened. There is no excuse for disrupting a client's plans. I had just switched calendars and failed to transfer the date properly. I have apologized to Shelly, but she certainly has every right to be angry.
