Elena and Óscar hired babysitter Ana when Raquel was 8 months old. Knowing that Ana was a mum herself gave them peace of mind.
Did you meet many babysitters before hiring Ana?
Elena (mother): “When ‘Oscar’s parental leave came to an end it was time to find a babysitter for Raquel. We had an Excel file with 20 babysitters who we liked and we had quite a few interviews. We liked Ana from the very first phone call: She has a very beautiful and calming voice. And, above all, she is a mom herself.”
“Now Raquel is going to the nursery, and the teachers say she talks a lot. ‘It’s the babysitter’, I say. She reads books to her, sings to her, and tells her stories.”
“My kids have grown up, and you would think that it’d be difficult for me to go back to playing with a kid at my age. But it isn’t! Luna and I spend a lot of our time together, just sitting on the floor playing. I go home with Play-Doh in my eyelashes.”
