We went to New York City for a weekend vacation and to celebrate our son's third birthday. We had plans for childcare on Saturday that fell through the day of our trip. Petra was able to sit for us at the last minute and did an amazing job. She came in and it was like she had always been our son's sitter. We wish that she lived in the DC area so that we could use her more often!
