We cannot imagine our lives without our nanny. To say she is not just a babysitter is an understatement. She is an educator, a motivator, and has been a transformative force in the life of our family. She worked with my son to sit, crawl, and walk; but even more than that, she dedicates herself to helping us raise a caring, well-mannered, and social child. We are constantly discovering the results of her magic – like when he slow danced with the girl in his share at a music class, voluntarily shared his toys with other children, or put his shoes on by himself. Our nanny speaks to him respectfully and asks the same from him. At the same time, she demonstrates love and care; for example, when his toy car lost its wheels she brought him a new one. It is an amazing balance and our son has flourished under her tutelage. Our son adores her. She has worked with us since my son was 5-months-old and I returned to work full-time. I have told friends that I never felt guilty about going back to work because I knew I was leaving my son in the best hands possible. She is never on the phone and has nonstop energy. When I come home from work, she in the floor playing with the kids and she takes them to the park or a play space every day. Our neighbors have commented on how amazing our nanny is – my response is, “I know.” She has also stayed late for us many times and has babysat on the weekends.
