I would like to intrduce myself. I am a 65 yr old entergetic Grandmother. LOVE Children! I was currently caring for a then Awesome 4 month old. I have been with the family for 6 months. I am sorry to have to leave the family but as it seems I moved move back to Mi. as I Have been a Ca resident for 30 yrs. I feel I can be an asset to you Iam planning to expand my experience by going back to college and taking classes which will enhance my knowlegde of child rearing I am truly devoted to the Child A mother can feel very confident with me because I am a child's advocate. 2nd reference Farmington Hills Mi Recommendation letter for Kathy Bonello         To whomsoever it may concern, Aug 9th 2012 Kathy Bonello has been with us as our son's caretaker since Read more he was 8 months old (January 2012). We found her through and instantly liked her during our interview. She is totally committed to her job and is genuinely caring and nurturing. She is always on time and has never taken a day off since she started. She informs us well in advance if she has a doctor's appointment and is not available for certain hours. She also stays late in case you cannot be home on time. She not only follows our instructions but also is proactive and comes up with suggestions on how to bring in variety to his food or how to introduce new activities to stimulate his brain.  She motivated and taught our son to stand, crawl, walk and climb stairs. She reads him books and always talks to him and pays full attention to him. She takes him out for walks and lets him play in the park and be independent and he totally loves it. She also helps us with a little bit of housework like washing my son's clothes, tidying up his room and disposing off his diapers. She is always on the look out for him and we are very happy to have her with us. Now that our son is 15 months old we have started him on daycare and she works part time. She picks him up from daycare and makes sure that he is fed, bathed and comfortable before she leaves for the day. We are very fortunate to have her as our son's nanny. We would totally recommend her as a nanny.   Aparna and Raj Iyer   If you like to interview with me I am available My e-mail address is Thank You Kathy Bonello Reference from last Family To whomever it may concern: It is my great pleasure to recommend Kathy Bonello as a nanny. She cared for our daughter Zaara from the time she was five months old until she was one (July 2010, Feb 2011) Kathy is reliable and affectionate. Our daughter had a lot of stranger anxiety as a baby making us very worried about how she would take to a nanny. But she took to Kathy instantly on the very first day. Kathy has been so loving and wonderfull to her in all her months with us until her move out of San Diego made us look for alternate arrangements. When we decided that we would move Zaara to a day care once Kathy was no longer available, she voluteered to work towards getting Zaara ready for a smooth transiton to day care. She also offered to stay in San Diego for a few extra months since we were reluctant to move our daughter to day care until she was one year old which was a great help to us. Being first time parents Kathy was always there to advise us with her years of experince as a mother and a grand mother while always respecting our wishes and rules as parents. Our daughter turned out to be a picky eater right from the start when we started introducing solids to her. Kathy would experiment with different recipes to find what she might like and to help her eat better and healther. Kathy always kept Zaara involved in a whole range of fun activities - she would read to her, play with her, take her for walks, teach her etc. Kathy would also always be ready to help me around the house whever she wasn’t engaged with Zaara. We feel fortunate to have had Kathy in our home. Her approach to caring for Zaara complemented our parenting well, she always respected our personal philosophies while being confident enough to independently make day-to-day decisions regarding Zaara. Kathy’s sweet nature and attitude always made us feel like she was part of the family and not someone we had hired. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to hear more about our experiences with Kathy. Uzma Khan 858 761 4717
