I was minding baby Barra while his parents got married last June. He was 4 months old baby and he was so good all day and all night. I collected Barra from his auntie’s house around 11am and we went to the Tinakilly Country House, in Wicklow, after the wedding ceremony around 4pm. His parents set up a lovely room for us where I fed him, read some books, played a bit and put him to sleep around 7pm. His cousin Emily, 3 years old, joined us around 5pm and she was wonderful too, looking after young babies can be tricky but it was a very easy going day as both kids were very well behaved. The hotel itself was amazing and has spectacular views of the countryside. Both Barra and Emily slept until 8am when their parents collected them to go for breakfast, at around 11am the family bought me back to Dublin. I really enjoy providing childcare during weddings as I get great satisfaction helping make a couple’s special day that bit easier.
In August 2013 myself and my babysitters where employed by The InterContinental (The Four Seasons Hotel) , in Dublin, giving the hotel a professional childcare service. We had great fun, we set up a several different areas with many activities such a bouncy castles, art and crafts table, sports area, hula – hoops and the ” Wii ” console. We also had a dance games and movie area. In addition, we organised a toddler area with foam puzzles , lego and soft toys for the littles ones Myself and my team had a great time with all the children who where in the hotel during this time and with the staff who made us feel very comfortable and welcome. I would like to say big thanks to Rosemary, Andrew and Laura for all your help and hope to see you again for others events. Elisa Xx
