Trisha looked after my daughter since she was 3 months old until she was nearly 4 years. as a full time working mother I had little time in the day to look into her day to day needs and she wasn't the easiest child to feed. With Trisha looking after her I had very little in terms of diet and other milestones to worry about. She achieved amazing things with Anouk and we were proud of how healthy and a well behaved child she was and it was all thanks to Trisha and her two great kids who were her loving companions. we were sad to loose her as our babysitter when we left Northern Ireland. Any family who is lucky enough to have her will undoubtedly have their kids the best loving care possible.
