Mary Poppins!

Lisa was my nanny for over 1.5 years, I was going back to work for the first time after 4 years and I was extremely nervous leaving Oscar with someone I didn't know. That all changed the day I met lisa (Oscar is VERY shy and not outgoing whatsoever, he doesn't leave my side) The moment Lisa stepped into our house we knew she was the one! Her very well mannered and gentle daughter couldn't have made Oscar feel more comfortable and I can say that I could leave him with her without having to worry about him while I am at work. When I came home he couldn't wait to tell me about the day that he had! He was always busy, whether it was arts & crafts, playing imaginative games, going on exciting outings - his favourite so far has been the zoo. Lisa has an incredible imagination, and she played very interesting educational games with Oscar, she taught him his numbers, how to count, add, how to tell the time and something I found remarkable was how to express his emotions e.g. When he had a melt down he would say " Mummy I'm tired" or "Mummy I'm upset because you won't let me watch TV" " Mummy I'm frustrated because I can't get my lego tower not to fall" and that made my life so much easier understanding some of his melt downs. I've never been happier and I am over the moon I finally found someone I can trust with my first and only baby and someone who understands the worry a mother has for their child. Lisa is also an exceptional cook and extremely healthy! (Oscar is now eventually eating his vegetables!) She is very professional, extremely reliable and I know I can depend on her. If we hadn't moved to Yorkshire she would still be looking after Oscar, He still asks for her and Arèlla all the time. Honestly she was a blessing and helped me through so much! I can't recommended her enough!
