Amazing Full Time Nanny Available in Mid August !!

Our amazing Nanny of 7 years will be available starting mid August since my daughter will be starting full time preschool. She is one of the best things that has ever happened to our family and has helped raised our 2 kids. She is extremely sweet, dependable, nurturing, cautious and is the best teacher I know! I can go on and on about how amazing she is. Looking to find her a great home.

  • Hi! My friend kiki (one girl 2yo and one on the way) is very interested in speaking with your nanny but is not on this forum - can you share contact info ? Thx!

  • Hi Anita,
    Our daughter who lives in Roscoe Village (we are in LP) is just starting to look for nanny. Mid-August might be perfect, and your nanny sounds awesome. Are you able to share her contact? Or I could give you Molly's contact so she could reach out to her...whichever works best..
    Thanks so much!

    Upgrade is so derivative, it's original
    Leigh Whannell's low-budget horror feature Upgrade, now playing in general release, reminds me of the goofy genre mash-ups made by Brian De Palma in the 1960s and '70s (Hi, Mom! , Phantom of the Paradise ) and Takashi Miike in the 1990s and the aughts (Fudoh: The New Generation , The Happiness of the Katakuris ).
