Our Commitment

Being a parent is tough. Leaving your child at home is tougher.

There might be a daycare or a babysitter nearby, but you still feel anxious; wondering if your kids are having fun and at the same time, getting the care and attention they deserve. Consider us your second home as WE:

 

  • Make it easier for you to find the best babysitter nearby
  • Provide you space to share your babysitting needs
  • Guide you through our child development workshops
  • Help ease parental burnout by practicing mindfulness techniques

Who We Are

We are specialists in our fields, but we are parents first.

Forever playing with children . I love to laugh out loud with kids. Constantly learning and growing as a mom. In my spare time, you can see me cooking in the kitchen, practicing mindful breathing techniques in front of dirty dishes and a pile of laundry, scrapbooking and reading books at "me time", visiting beautiful places and bonding with my family.

I’m passionate with IT troubleshooting. I keep the website running for my wife, or else… When offline, I usually read self-development and spiritual books, practice tai chi, hike in nature, watch science fiction movies and spend quality time with my family.
