Mrs. Doubtfire

Nanny in Edmonton

Who am I? I am a mother of 25 year old identical twin girls that I single handed raised--they are very successful. One is a journeyman welder and the other a Health and Safety officer. I also have a 13 yr old son living now with his father in Porters Lake, NS where he is highly active in sports, namely hockey. I have recently returned to Halifax, NS from working as a General Construction Labourer in the Oil Patch Industry--it's the reason my son resides with his father--we have a great joint custody situation--very supportive and functional bond for our son. I have grown very tired of Labourers work and quite frankly my body can't handle it anymore, plus I want to stay here in Nova Scotia. Like Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire, I am a kind, loving person and simply adore children. I know children do best when well entertained. I love the outdoors and going on adventures. I am a published children's story author with many works in progress. I know how to build stories and get the creative juices flowing with children of all ages. I especially love expanding their imaginations. I've worked for the Halifax, NS School Board as a Teacher's Assistant and as well I've worked with adults with Special Needs. I know how to diffuse aggressive behaviours and how to provide personal care when needed. I am a terrific cook and very inventive and creative in the kitchen. I will even make wonderful meals for the entire family as I've been a cook in several restaurants and am very fussy about the meals I make and eat. I know how to improvise. I know how to make a penny stretch. I am confident and extremely outgoing. I take direction well. Oh, nearly forgot....when I was 19 I worked in Newton Centre Boston, Mass as a live-in Nanny for a Jewish Family. I went there a month before their second child was born and basically became the main one responsible for all the baby's personal needs. it was so long ago, but I sure learned a lot from that job. I believe children need schedules and discipline but also room to play lots and have voices to be heard. After all, it is a parents' job to provide the world with great little people and home life is where it all begins! I can be reached anytime day or night through my email account or at 647-362-... most times....but if all else fails call 902-233-... nd leave a message with my daughter.
