I have 25+ years experience with children of all ages. I have been babysitting so long that I am now babysitting children of the children I babysat for 25+ years ago. I have experience with multiples and special needs children. I am also a Sunday pre-school teacher at my church. I can also be found at care.com.
This is the way I see it, you are turning over your children, your home and everything else surrounding your life while you go out and do what you need to do, whatever that may be. While you are gone you expect your children and home to be well taken care of. I am honored that you would trust me with your children and your home. I will do everything within my power to make sure it's all returned safe and sound to you. That's what you truly want - to be secure in the knowledge that your children are safe, loved and well taken care of. That's the peace of mind I can give you.
I have provided excellent references for you to contact. If you are trying to reach me during the evening or weekends, please feel free to call my cell @ 496-7738, as I rarely check email then.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

After a few months as our nanny, she informed us by text 1 hour before time to come over she had moved away. Very disrespectful way to give notice to a family and a good reason for us to start using nanny contracts and pay every other week! Note to self!
As for the care, she did not take our girls outside, never once took them for a walk or to play, even when toddler asked. Several times I changed the girls after their naps and found caked-on dirty diaper so clearly they hadn't been changed in awhile.
My toddler stayed in her bed for an hour or so after nap most days not wanting to get up and cried every time she came over. She often ignored our instructions: on more than one occasion the baby missed an entire feeding or was given formula from hours earlier despite being instructed to feed at certain times, to be persistent and to throw out old formula after an hour and a half max! All things a nanny with 20 years should know.
I was in the process of interviewing new nannies when she abruptly moved so that is not really an issue but a lousy way to treat a family. Our primary complaint and reason for this review is the lack of care, compassion or willingness to play with our girls.
Our experience, this nanny sat on the couch, never took our kids outside, and ignored clear instructions (all verified by nanny cam). We have had several great nannies and sitters through sitter city that have loved and laughed and provided wonderful care to our girls...Pauline unfortunately was NOT one of the good ones.
