Elena & Ana “Why I chose Ana as a babysitter? Because she is a mom, too.”
Elena and Óscar, Raquels parents, hired babysitter Ana when Raquel was 8 months old. Knowing that Ana was a mum herself, gave her peace of mind.
When Óscars parental leave came to an end it was time to find a babysitter for Raquel. Did you meet many babysitters before hiring Ana?
Elena (mother): “We had an Excel file with 20 babysitters that 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! Raquel and I spend a lot of our time together, just sitting on the floor playing. And I go home with Play Doh on my eyelashes.”
