I have been a nanny for seven year,but my last job was by far my favourite,I took care of two little girls Stella who would be two in September and Ruby who is five.I worked full time with these two girls and spent a lot of time with them,and they became very dear to me. I had the full trust and confidence of their parents who accepted me as an extension of themselver where their girls were concern .They knew by the way the girls related to me that I loved them unconditionally and treated them as I knew their parents would. I took the girls to the park,we spent time at the library,Itook them to play dates and birthday parties.we read together coloured books and went for walks.I did laundry for the kids and some light housekeeping.It was very hard for me when I left. Sadly the mom lost her job and was unable to keep me on.We are still in contact ,and they have been helping me to find new employ,they are avalible as references for me at your request.
