We had such a lovely nomination come through for KiwiOz Nanny Jessica Reynolds, and we simply couldn't ignore it! Check out what her KiwiOz London Family had to say about her below:
"Jess came at Christmas, just as I was beginning to despair of finding someone who would take on my four lovable but unruly daughters in time for me to return to work. She was the best Christmas present! She is calm and easy going, clever and energetic, loving and extremely well-organised. She remains calm and unruffled despite the chaos and turbulence of our household; getting the children dressed and to school, looking after the toddler during the day, ferrying the children to their whirlwind round of after-school activities, encouraging them firmly to do their homework and music practice, and then giving them supper and getting them ready for bed.
"She thinks of loads of creative activities to do with the children; whether it’s a tray full of bubbles to amuse the baby, helping the eldest to make a shield and sword for school, or carefully supervising the carving of pumpkins. She does a great job of standing in for me. The children’s headteacher even said “Your nanny is amazing! She was so helpful on the PTA cake stall – did she know what she was letting herself in for when you volunteered her?”
"Her cooking is amazing, and encourages the children to try new foods. The children happily eat delicious vegetable curries and stir fries that I’m sure they would have resisted a year ago, and I appreciate there always being food left for me when I get home from work.
"Out one-year old loves her (“my Je-appy!” she says, throwing her arms around her). Our six-year old always says “When I grow up I’m going to be like Jess and travel round the world”, and our nine-year old think she’s fantastic (“she should be on the Great British Bake-off, she’d definitely win it with her cookies”). Our 11-year old aspires to be like her (“Jess is always on time and she’s so tidy”).
"Even the cats think she’s wonderful and have taken up residence on her bed. She is definitely one of the family and we will all miss her so much when she goes home!"
Goodness me Jessica, you really are a supernanny! Congratulations on winning this month's Nanny of the Month Award.
