"Katie is absolutely lovely. She has watched my girls for the past year now. I’m a stay at home mom so I unfortunately don’t get to call on her often but it’s always such a delight when I do. I always come home to a sparkling house and she even somehow gets the girls to do art projects ( gasp)! She’s also incredible with my newborn as well. I would recommend her to all!"
