Paula has been with us about 1.5 years now, and is a part of our family. When I head to work in the morning it is with complete confidence that my daughter is in the best hands, and I don't ever worry. She is also learning a lot with Paula, and constantly surprising us with new phrases and understanding of situations.
Paula was an EMT in her past life and has many years of experience working with kiddos, as a nanny and with the Imagine program. She’s very level headed and provides a consistency for our little girl that is wonderful. Paula spends the days on meals, naps, walks to the park, babies and books at the library, baby music class, finger painting, reading, etc. Library days are especially fun - they go for several hours and it’s like a big play group.
We’re looking for part or full time families to get two kiddos in the share at least most of the hours. We believe socialization is important! We live in Louisville, but often rotate locations of the share (i.e., some days at our house and some days at the other family's, so everyone has some quiet days and some days they don't have to pack up in the morning).
We have a super friendly and energetic black lab mix and often watch my mother-in-law's sweet border collie mix. We also have a cat, though he is outdoors so much people rarely see him. Finally, we and our nanny do require kiddos in the share to all be vaccinated.
